This is really cool, it’s hard to make it out all the “street events” around the country and world. Props to David and crew for doing this. The top 25 in the Championship standings throughout the series will be getting some help to make sure they can make it out to the next events in the series and for some of these guys that will be a huge help. So cool.
Here are the first of edits coming out of Red Hook this year. Both of these are awesome and I can’t wait for more!
We are proud to release the Red Hook Criterium Brooklyn no.6 Official poster, featuring photography by Brian Vernor and designed by Jonah Birns.

The offical jersey of the 2013 Red Hook Crit Brooklyn is here and it looks great. Manufactured in partership with Castelli USA, and designed by Jonah Birns, this ultra-limited jersey is only available at G+D, and at the race on March 30 (if there are any left).
These are a race cut garment, so we recommend sizing UP.

Great poster for that other huge event going down in New York at the end of the month.
We are proud to release the 2013 Red Hook Criterium Brooklyn Alternate poster. Featuring paintings by local artists Wayne Mazzotta & John Gordon Gauld and designed by Jonah Birns. This poster pays respect to the rich maritime history of Red Hook and the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, the RHC’s waterfront location where the 2013 Championship Series presented by Rockstar Games will begin on March 30th, 2013.

At the first RHC all registered competitors must participate in a open track session which will be held on the afternoon of the race. This session will be the only opportunity to pre-ride the circuit. The field will be split into multiple groups depending on the amount of registered riders and circuit length. Lap times will be taken during the session with the 100 fastest lap times advancing into the race. This will benefit experienced athletes, novices, and spectators. Elite athletes will now be competing in a field with an accumulative higher skill level creating a safer and more competitive race. Beginners who fail to qualify still have the opportunity for more competitive track time than the current lapped rider elimination format allows. Prizes will be awarded to the fastest qualifying time and determine call ups for the two front rows.
