Description

Date: October 6, 2019

Start: The Place Taipei

Finish: The Place Taipei

The Rapha City Prestige tasks small amateur teams with an unsupported and unmarshalled adventure through the heat of the city. Unsupported and unmarshalled, the rules are simple: start and finish as a team, passing all mandatory checkpoints en route.

Unlike other Prestige events, there’s no route here. Instead, teams will be issued with a unique 5x5 square with checkpoints numbered from one to twenty-five. To complete the ride, teams must join up five checkpoints on their sheet in a straight line, horizontal, vertical or diagonal, and pass through a couple of mandatory checkpoints. These will include the Taipei Clubhouse and the summit of the city’s highest paved road; the remaining locations will be revealed to teams 48 hours before the ride.

The City Prestige Taipei is a completely unsupported ride to be completed by teams of five with at least one female rider. You are responsible for navigation and all riders are expected to be self-sufficient. Minimum kit should include two tubes, a multi-tool, a pump, a patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend spare kit and nutrition. A paper cue sheet will be supplied. Riders leave from 6am and must return to the finish point by 6pm.

Details and Materials

  • Entry for teams of five (including a female member)
  • Paper cue sheet
  • Lights and an additional battery pack recommended
  • Food truck serving riders at the finish
