The Red Hook Criterium is this Saturday (3/30)! If you don’t know, here’s the official verbiage:
“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.”
This year’s edition takes on a greater significance in light of the devastation the Red Hook District in Brooklyn suffered during Hurricane Sandy.
Hypebeast did a sweet profile on the race and its founder, Dave Trimble. You might notice the logo of Gage+DeSoto on the windows of the RHC headquarters. G+D have partnered with Dave and set up shop within the space which they’ve dubbed, “The Red Hook Office: part offices and part clubhouse.”
