What sort of bike or terrain?
The terrain and ideal bike for each Prestige varies. Gravel is featured in many of them and the recommended bike and tire choice for each is listed on the application form.
Can start/end locations be revealed (for accommodation purposes)
The start/end locations are included on the application form. The specific location will be shared via email to participants at least one week prior to the event date.
Is it an A - B route or a loop?
This will vary for each event, but the majority of events start and end in the same location.
Why an application rather than buying?
The application process will allow us to reserve spaces for RCC members and women to encourage greater gender parity at our events. It will give you more time to gather your team before purchasing your ticket.
How do I apply?
To apply, simply complete the application form for the event before the application deadline. Only one application is required per team. The event team will respond to let you know if you have been selected by the notification deadline (listed on the application form). At this stage, you will be invited to purchase your ticket and confirm your team, after which you will receive all the event details including a gpx route and an event waiver.
The ticket is non-refundable so please ensure you and your team are all able to attend before making a purchase. If your application is successful but you no longer wish to attend, please contact the event organiser or customer services.
What is the Application deadline?
The application deadline for each event is listed on the application form. Typically, one month prior to the event taking place.
Is it possible to complete a Prestige ride solo? (or larger team)
The ride is designed for teams of four. This sets the Rapha Prestige apart from other ride formats. The fun is choosing your teammates and the challenge is to work together and cross the finish line together.
Will GPX be provided?
Yes. The route will be shared at least one week prior to the event date.
What is covered by the ticket price, if the event is unsupported & unmarshalled?
While the Prestige doesn’t follow a set route on closed route and regular feedstations, each event will offer different levels of support. This includes route planning support, emergency/first aid, a post-ride meal and some special takeaways.
The ticket price covers entry for 4 participants
How to swap a team member in an already registered team?
Please contact customer service who will be able to put you in touch with the event organiser to update their records and send an event participation waiver, which all team members are required to complete.
Tickets are non-refundable so please organise reimbursement directly with your teammates.
