Rockstar Games Presents The Red Hook Criterium, the premiere international track bike criterium series is making its return in the capital this summer, at London’s iconic Greenwich Peninsula on Saturday 22nd July.
The Red Hook Criterium’s unique racing format challenges competitors over a short, technical race circuit riding brakeless, fixed-gear bikes traditionally raced on a velodrome. Attracting skilled athletes from multiple disciplines across the world all competitors need to possess street-tuned handling skills and exceptionally high levels of physical fitness to compete for a place on the podium.
One of the most visually spectacular, spectator friendly, adrenalin-charged bike races in the world, the RHC has rapidly grown since its humble beginnings in Red Hook, Brooklyn in 2008. Expanding first to Milan in 2010, followed by Barcelona in 2013, and making its return to London after its debut in 2015, it firmly establishes The Red Hook Crit as the world’s premiere track bike criterium.
