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.”
As someone who is constantly looking at how other videographers and photographers capture cycling, the Make it Happen video caught my eye. Sent to me by George Marshall of the Albion this project is worth checking out, in its full glory.
