Crowd Primes are in addition to the Advertisement Primes described above. These will be any dollars or prizes brought to the Stage on race day. These awards are collected as a sum-total of their value to be distributed solely as "Crowd Primes." Any person or business who wishes to have a specific message read by the announcer should consider an Advertisement Prime before race day. Historically speaking, the Tour of Somerville raises a few thousand dollars, but this is not guaranteed by the event or event directors.

Grid Start for 2023

Long Tail Productions has used the grid start at events such as the Reading Radsport Festival and Electric City Classic. This year, Easton Twilight Criterium and Tour of Somerville will implement a starting grid for all fields. Please arrive at Athlete Staging no less than 15 minutes prior to your race. Your grid placement is final and cannot be changed by race officials or event staff. Riders who miss athlete staging and/or their call-up on the grid will start at the back of the grid.
