Red Hook Criterium No. 4 - Brooklyn 2011
The Red Hook Criterium is an unsanctioned bicycle race through a desolate post-industrial area of Brooklyn. Track bikes are mandatory and the field consists of elite level roadies, bike messengers, and urban cyclists. The race distance is 20 laps around a .75 mile circuit which features several hairpin turns, a technical chicane, a cobblestone stretch, and a sprint finish. The Red Hook Criterium has developed a new and unique style of cycling event which combines the underground art of street racing with the intensity of high level competition in a fun spectator friendly atmosphere.
This year’s Red Hook Criterium is March 26, 2011 at 11pm. Racers can register starting noon on March 7. Check out cool pixs from last year. Can’t wait.
