The 2014 Red Hook Crit Barcelona Video

Here’s the first video from the 2014 Red Hook Crit Barcelona, which, by the way, looked like a fun event, especially when rendered in slow motion.

This is one race that I’ve always wanted to attend. The 2014 Red Hook Crit Barcelona looked like a blast from all the Instagram accounts who were in attendance and Father Tu’s photos on Flickr are some of the best that have come across my radar.

Congrats to Julio Padilla on the win!

Another 2014 Red Hook Crit Video

Here’s another great video from the 2014 Red Hook Crit in Brooklyn.

“Heavy rain brought a tense day leading up to this year’s Red Hook Crit. Threats of cancellation and worries of increased danger on the course were relieved when the race finally started, 2 hours before its scheduled time, with a modified course and a shortened number of laps. Nevertheless riders came out in full force to battle the elements and each other.

Now in it’s 7th year, what started out as an informal birthday party for organizer David Trimble has become an international event. Hundreds of competitors from over 20 different countries descend on the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook to race on brakeless fixed-gear track bikes, and this year in the rain. The race is fast and intense, with only the strongest and smartest of riders able to overcome the fury and seize the title.”

Words and photos by Chris Lee

The second installment of the All City Championships got started late in the day. 10pm meet up at One On One and a group ride to the start of the fixed gear crit. We (as a group) rolled up to a vacant events lot next to an overpass. It was incredibly dark with only a couple street lights and a big Budweiser billboard illuminating the race course…

The 2014 Wolfpack Hustle Civic Center Crit
... and cooked corners.

You know what? I had never been to a Wolfpack event before last night. I know, I know, I suck… Luckily, it just so happened that I was in Los Angeles and was able to pedal down Sunset Blvd to the Los Angeles Civic Center to watch the 2014 Wolfpack Hustle Civic Center Crit…

2014 Wolfpack Hustle Civic Center Video

Last night I rolled out to the 2014 Wolfpack Hustle Civic Center Crit to shoot some photos, hang out and see what it was all about. I’d never been to a Wolfpack event before, so it was all new to me. Having said that, this video captures the vibes quite well.

Don’t miss that podium scene and Erin’s unfortunate collision with a champagne bottle!
