All posts in Red Hook Criterium

The Red Hook Crit is known for being a pretty intense race as it is, but in the latest running the racing was so close the spectators could feel it. 
Literally. 
 Watch as the guy in the red and yellow jersey jumps right up, like he didn’t just cartwheel over another rider, tomahawking his bike into the crowd in the process, where’s my bike?. 
Not to mention the spectator in the helmet who gets hit by a rider going over the wall, only to casually keep filming like nothing happened. 
We just hope that everyone walked away from this crash without serious harm.

The Italian version of the world’s premiere track bike criterium returns once again to the streets of Milano. The race will consist of 100 elite road cyclists, track racers, bike messengers, and urban athletes competing over 22 laps. The technical nature of competing on a track bike requires competitors to possess both street tuned handling skills and a high level of strength and fitness. Riders are confirmed from 14 countries promising a thrilling show for the thousands of spectators expected to line the circuit. In coordination with Sunday October 14th’s designation as a “car free day” the city of Milano has awarded permits and cooperation to realize the dream of organizing this race in the city proper. This race is an important demonstration on what is possible in urban areas around the world.
