Rapha sells limited edition caps in California

A different cycling cap for each stage, only available on site

As the Amgen Tour of California kicks off this Sunday, Rapha will be on hand selling limited edition cycling caps from its Mobile Cycle Club, with one cap design for each stage. Rapha collaborated with House Industries on the designs.

Rapha-sponsored Team Sky will be racing California, with former Tour de France and Olympic champion Bradley Wiggins among the top names.

Rapha's Mobile Cycle Club is a trailer equipped with top-end espresso machines and merchandise. The coffee is always free, whether for professional riders or fans of the sport.

This year, the Rapha Mobile Cycle Club will be parked in the team parking area for stages 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7. For the other stages, the Mobile Cycle Club will be out on course.

Aside from the caps, Rapha is selling a Team Sky Mount Diablo t-shirt.

The cycling caps are only being sold at the race for US$25 each, only on their respective stage.
