Rockstar Games Red Hook Crit Barcelona Poster

There are just three short days until the Red Hook Crit Barcelona goes down. Personally, I’m very pumped on this race and I wish I could be there to see it in person. To commemorate the event, Rockstar Games designed a poster for Red Hook Crit and it looks so good!

Two years ago at the Red Hook Crit in Brooklyn, I met Kathryn Friedman, a photographer who happened to ride bikes in NYC and after this year’s Navy Yard crit, she emailed me some photos. I figured I’d let the dust settle a bit from one of the most bloody Red Hook Crit events ever, prior to posting…
