Emiliano Granado at the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard
Emiliano Granado at the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard

Few people know speed like Emiliano Granado. He’s one of cycling’s most creative and compelling photographers, known best from his work with Daniel Pasley on Manual For Speed and Yonder Journal. Emi’s in your face approach to documenting the sport often results in candid, up close and personal portraits in what many would consider the most inopportune time. Don’t expect podium or finish line shots from Manual For Speed because this is the real side of cycling. MFS spends every waking moment with professional cyclists. They know the tricks of the trade and in many ways, this experience makes MFS one of the most authentic resources for those wishing to see what it’s like to truly be PRO.

The Red Hook Crit Navy Yard was quite the race. A quick, technical course awaited over 100 racers and only 5 would finish. All it took was one big spill to split the field and with Neil Bezdek out in front, it seemed the race was determined after the first lap. Kyle Murphy from MASH SF held Bezdek’s wheel, placing him in second and Marc Marino from Team Chica Sexy won in a sprint for third. Everyone I’ve talked to about the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard said it was one of the fastest races they’ve been in. A true exhibition.

Neil Bezdek Wins the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard

Photos by Bklynjosh

Neil Bezdek won the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard Brooklyn track crit last night. The course was fast and almost immediately, Neil and Kyle Murphy broke away, before being caught by Marc Marino who finished third (hell yeah dude!!!!). Finishing fourth and fifth were Alex Barouh and Cooper Ray.

A lot of the race favorites flatted out, some crashed but Neil took his fourth all-time victory at the Red Hook Crit.

Fifo Cycle for Cinelli: 2013 Bespoke Cycling Cap

Cinelli has teamed up with Fifo Cycle in Red Hook, Brooklyn to make a limited edition bespoke cycling cap for Spring/Summer 2013. Made from linen and cotton and screen printed and sewn by hand, this fully reversible hat takes it’s inspiration from 1960’s pop art.

“We wanted to stay true to the impact the Cinelli branding has had on cycling graphics and to harken back to their vintage design legacy. It has been an extremely exciting project for Fifo Cycle…just the kind of design challenge that gets us spinning in the studio! We used transparent water based inks on natural fabrics to give the hat a vintage feel and an Oxford stripe on the reverse side to keep it dapper and fresh!”
Fiona Ryan,
Lead Designer at Fifo Cycle
