Primes (“Preems”)

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 2016 Redlands Bicycle Classic featured the Stage 2 Pro Criteriums for Men and Women on Saturday in downtown Redlands and the USCF Licensed Criteriums on Sunday. 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.

Prime Contributions

You, too, can be part of the Redlands Bicycle Classic! As a Prime Contributor, your business, organization or you as an individual will receive recognition in the Official Race Program. Additionally, PA announcements during the criterium will highlight each contributor. Join in this opportunity to support an exciting part of the event that means so much to the racers. Cash is preferred, however, merchandise or gift certificates are appreciated.
