Taken from the event’s official webpage, “The Red Hook Criterium” is an unsanctioned race series consisting of world-class road racers, track specialists, bike messengers and urban athletes competing over multiple laps around a short, technical circuit. Fixed gear track bikes are mandatory requiring riders to possess both street-tuned handling skills and high levels of fitness.” Now entering its fifth year, RHC has expanding from a single race in Brooklyn to a four-part championship series with now two races in Brooklyn, another in Barcelona during the month August and Milan in October. This Saturday the illegal bike circuit gets underway with its mainstay 30 km race around the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Swiftly approaching Saturday’s 9 p.m. starting time, Founder David Trimble links with HBTV to discuss in detail among many things the birth of the RHC, his family’s background in bicycle design, this year’s partnership with Rockstar Games, the Red Hook community, and much more.
