Neil is a best and without a doubt the longest Red Hook Crit participant / bad ass / combatant ever. At least in my opinion anyway…
This past weekend, racers and spectators gathered for the eighth annual Red Hook Crit. Unlike previous years, this last Saturday provided far more sun and warmth, although racers had to fight against considerable gusts of wind all day.
2015 brought the most diverse field of racers in the history of the Red Hook Crit. With 29 countries represented, it was a melting pot of nationalities staging in the Cruise Terminal, where riders warmed up before the races. Additionally the number of competitors in the women’s field more than doubled from last year, boasting a healthy 79 racers registered.
Like last year, multiple qualifying heats during the day were used to advance and place racers in the two feature races later that night. The men’s field had a new addition of the “Last Chance” race. The “Last Chance” race was a 14 lap crit with the top 10 finishers were added to the feature race.
At the end of the night, Ivan Ravaioli and Ainara Arteaga took home the win, the medals, the custom RHC Cinelli track bike, and the glory.

Last Saturday was the 2015 Red Hook Crit Brooklyn and racers from all over traveled to NYC to take a stab at victory, or at least finishing in the main group. Photographer Derek Yarra met up with a few racers for portraits, prior to them taking off for NYC. Here are two, of Erica and Marc, see a few more at Derek’s Flickr.

With all the coverage from the Red Hook Crit Milano this year, it’s like we were there.
This video proses the staging of the Red Hook Crit Milano, prior to the start.
I’d say this is the best RHC Milano video to date, but I wish they interviewed more women about their criterium. Where’s Ash Duban?! Regardless, it’s a well put together documentary about a race that began illegally in the backstreets of Red Hook and eventually, Milano.
The Red Hook Crit always spawns so many videos!
