The ride of a thousand passes

Red Hook Crit – Milan 2016

The Red Hook Criterium is the world’s premier track bike criterium, since 2008. With four spectacular events scheduled in Brooklyn, London, Barcelona and Milan, the series is unique in that it requires athletes to race multiple laps around a 1km (approx.) technical circuit on brakeless, fixed gear track bikes. Taking cues from international motorsport, athletes begin by competing in timed qualification rounds to establish grid positions for the main event. The finals, traditionally raced at night, are held in front of thousands of spectators at each destination.
