Red Hook Crit: March 30th, June 9th

The Red Hook Crit, is an adrenaline filled bike race that started in the streets of Brooklyn in 2008.  This past Saturday, the desolate Brooklyn Terminal was packed with spectators cheering-on cyclists riding fixed gears (no brakes, no coasting whatsoever), blazing 28 miles any hour, tailing each other for 25 laps on a 1 mile loop course. Neil Bezdek finished first in 41:32 minutes!

I rode the same course afterwards and I could not for the life of me stop from instinctively hitting my breaks to slow down around each curve.  #nogutsnoglory

The next race is June 9th in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, followed by Barcelona, then Milano.
