The Red Hook Crit first hit the cobbles of Red Hook in 2008. With less than 20 competitors. Now with almost 300 racers fighting for position to qualify, RHC has grown immensely. Crowds in the thousands come to Red Hook Brooklyn to cheer on friends, family or just simply to spectate. This year RHC has added a women’s field to the program to add to the mens race and the mens and women’s running race. With a full schedule in 2014, there was only one challenge in everyones way. The weather!
With 30 plus women in the starting line, everyone was excited for the first installment of the RHC women’s field. Ash Duban was selected by Trimble Racing as the favorite.She did not disappoint by qualifying first to meet that pressure. On the mens side it was Neil Bezdek who was picked the pre-race favorite to come back and win the race again. Watch as an exciting race filled evening unfolded in both crits.
