Adventure. Teamwork. Resilience.
The Rapha Prestige tasks teams of five with an all-day adventure across stunning terrain. Unsupported and unmarshalled, the rules are simple: start and finish as a team, and pass through all the checkpoints.
Prepare for approximately 150 kilometres, and expect to be on the bike for between 10-12 hours. We seek out the roads less travelled, aiming to be quite remote at times. The surface will be mixed, with sections ranging from perfect tarmac to rugged gravel. There will be two checkpoint locations and a supplied route, which will be revealed, only to confirmed participants, one week before the ride.
The Prestige is a completely unsupported ride. You are responsible for navigation and keeping yourself and your team going. Minimum kit should include two tubes, multi-tool, pump, patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend spare kit and nutrition. A .gpx file will be supplied, teams must follow the supplied route.
