Primes (“Preems”)


Each year the Redlands Bicycle Classic brings world class cyclists to the Inland Empire drawing over 25,000 spectators. During its 34 year history, it has grown as one of the oldest and one of the largest international cycling events in the United States, and is the largest multi-day sporting event in the region with racing throughout San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. USAC Licensed Criteriums, Public Races, Handcycling Races compliment the weekend finale of this renowned four-day stage race.

Primes (“Preems”)

An award presented to the leader or other designated rider position on multiple specific laps during a criterium race; that is a timed, multi-lapped race on a spectator friendly closed course approximately 1 mile in length.

The Redlands Bicycle Classic featured the Stage 2 Pro Criteriums for Men and Women on Saturday (May 5) in downtown Redlands and the USCF Licensed Criteriums on Sunday (May 6). Primes are traditionally awarded during criteriums. For many racers, this is the only “prize” they receive. Our goal is to present a minimum of $50 cash for each prime often combined with merchandise.
