This just in from the Red Hook Crit:
“The Red Hook Criterium is proud to announce the introduction of a cohesive championship series which will take place over four rounds. Points will be accumulated throughout the season to award the first Red Hook Criterium World Champion. The first round will take place on March 30th in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Additional race dates, venues, and cities will be announced shortly.
In addition we will be introducing a new qualifying format, a constructors/team cup, and an expanded prize list. We are also increasing our focus on the 5k running race with a two race series, the men and women’s fields held separately, and USATF certified courses.”
