This is quite interesting. Thanks @liub for the share.
So, Rapha holds what they call summits in (I think) two locations every year. From what I’ve heard…it’s a multi-day cycling vacation, exclusive to Rapha Cycling Club (RCC) members.
The fee is pretty high and includes high(er) end accommodations, banquets, speeches, beer, support cars when you go out to ride and sometimes may have Rapha execs and ex pros come out to join.
Rapha does get a lot of crap from the community, but I see this as them recognizing how special Wuling is. As one of the most recognizable cycling apparel brands in the world, I think this is a pretty big deal and will definitely help put our hidden gem on the cycling world map as a major destination.
They will (most likely) be riding the KOM route and with the publicity that came after Nibali last year, we can only assume the destination and climb will get more and more popular.
Summits are RCC exclusive, sorry! Thanks for the heads up @squall1 and @Liub
