Rapha Prestige

Unsupported and unmarshalled, the Rapha Prestige challenges small teams to take on testing courses around the globe. Teams of four are required to work together and, most importantly, stay together through stunning terrain, passing all the checkpoints en route to the finish. Gather your team, sign up to ride, and take on the challenge.

While we’ve reached the end of the 2021 calendar of team adventures, the Rapha Prestige will return in 2022.

Adventure

The pursuit of adventure is a founding principle of Prestige rides. To find your own route with your teammates, and share the ups and downs that come with it, forms the basis of any adventure.

Teamwork

Working together to complete a ride can be one of the most rewarding experiences on a bike. The shared effort, and small sacrifices for the success of the team, is what Rapha Prestige is all about.

Resilience

Limits vary widely from person to person. But to push until you meet yours, then keep going, is when you’ll reap the biggest rewards from riding.

Prestige Peak District

Northern grit
“When the tank is close to empty and you feel like quitting, knowing that you’re part of a team can be fuel enough to keep the legs turning.”
– Lewis Greaves, rider at the Prestige Peak District

Prestige Taebaek

Hidden villages, mountain roads
More than 70 percent of South Korea is covered by mountains, and among this tightly knit network of ranges and river systems to the east of the Korean peninsula, the Taebaek mountains stretch all the way from the north to the southern coast.

Prestige Colorado

More cows than cars
Steamboat Springs sits somewhat remotely in Northwest Colorado. Located in Routt County, nestled up next to the Continental Divide, which traces a long and mountainous line down from Montana to New Mexico, its location makes for spectacular riding. Moots, the frame manufacturer, played generous host to the Prestige and its 25 teams.

Prestige FAQ's


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 event description page.

Can start/end locations be revealed (for accommodation purposes)

The start/end locations are included on the event description page. 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 2021 events start and end in the same location.

What is the Entry deadline?

The entry deadline for each event is listed on the event description page. Typically, one month prior to the event taking place.

Is there a reserve list?

Once a Prestige sells out there will be a link to register your interest. Should a spot open up with enough time, we will message those on the waitlist.

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 in unison to plot your route and cross the finish line together.

Will GPX be provided?

Yes. The route will be shared within a week of the event.

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.

I thought each team member needed to purchase a ticket, can I get a refund?

Please contact Customer service to discuss a refund.
