The Rapha Prestige tasks teams of four 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 90 miles of challenging mixed terrain, with more than 10,000 feet of climbing. We seek out the roads less travelled, aiming to find remote riding through the wilderness. We’ll take on the Coast Range Mountains, riding logging roads and passing through deep forests. There will be checkpoint locations and a supplied route, which will be revealed only to confirmed participants 48 hours before the ride.
While the roads are passable on a road bike equipped with 28mm tires, a cross or gravel bike with 32mm or larger tires is highly recommended.
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 paper cue sheet will be supplied as well as a .gpx file.
Up to 35 teams of four will be confirmed.
$200 per team. Once your application has been accepted, Rapha will be in touch to collect the entry fee. Rapha will supply a payment link to confirmed teams by latest Friday, August 25.
The closing date for applications is Friday, August 18. Rapha will contact successful teams by latest Friday, August 25 with a payment link.
