Rapha Rising was a mission a few years back. It is back this year, but not as a mission. Instead, the challange will be 3 different stages on three different days. The series will conquer a different route each day, some of the most popular climbing routes on Zwift. There will be virtual gear that you can unlock throughout the challenge, including the kit and socks. For every stage you complete, there will be in game gear that you will unlock. Completing all three stages will amount you with a total of 2,896 meters. If you complete all three stages, you have the opportunity of winning a 1500 Euro voucher to Rapha.
