The Rapha Prestige tasks small amateur teams with an unsupported and unmarshalled adventure across stunning terrain. The rules are simple: start and finish as a team and pass through all the checkpoints.
Nestled between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean on the coastline of southern California, Santa Barbara is home to some of the best gravel riding in the lower half of the state. Boasting a multitude of country backroads that roll through lush vineyards, expansive ranches, quiet canyons, and high mountain climbs, this picturesque beachside town is a cyclist's paradise. Mild temperatures in November will be appreciated as riders are tasked with a picturesque but challenging gravel ride that includes two demanding mountain passes. As the route will cover a decent amount of unpaved road, a gravel equipped bike is essential to riding this Prestige.
Prepare for approximately 180 kilometres of rolling terrain. Expect to be on the bike for 9 hours. The exact route and details of the checkpoint locations will be revealed only to confirmed participants one week before the ride.
The Prestige Santa Barbara is an entirely unsupported ride to be completed by teams of four. To make sure you’re self-sufficient out on the road, ensure you’re prepared for anything by bringing along two tubes, a multi-tool, a pump, a patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend a spare kit and plenty of food.
Minimum tire size recommendation for this Prestige is 35mm.
