Man, it’s been a crazy few days and while I settle into posting, I’m going to fire off a few Red Hook Crit videos.
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!

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.”
Brooklyn’s David Trimble has expanded his track bike criterium races into much more. The Red Hook Crit is a fully-branded machine at this point, collaborating with countless cycling companies. The latest being Timbuk2 and this Travel Backpack.

There it is! The new Red Hook Crit Barcelona poster is insane…
Continuing on from their No 7 Keirin-inspired DND gloves, Red Hook Crit and Giro have produced a run of commemorative Barcelona DND gloves. Available tomorrow at Barceloneta Bikes and at the RHC Barcelona. See more information at the RHC Facebook.

Well, yesterday the 2014 Red Hook Crit Barcelona opened for registration and I missed out on posting it. The men’s field is at waitlist status but the women’s field is open and of course, spectators can go for free.

Crihs really did a great job on the 2014 Red Hook Crit Brooklyn video. Enjoy!
