Round 2 of the Red Hook Crit at the Brooklyn Navy Yard on Saturday, June 8th.

Posted on May 28 2013, 11:59am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar
Today we're proud to announce details for the second leg of the 2013 Red Hook Criterium on Saturday June 8th. Before making its way across the pond to Europe for events in Barcelona and Milan later this year, this urban race series consisting of a track bike criterium and a 5k foot race moves into the Brooklyn Navy Yard for the first time.
This spectator-friendly race will feature athletes from around the world - world class road racers, track specialists, bike messengers and urban cyclists - competing in multiple laps around a short and technical circuit for championship points and the chance to enter the history books as the first winner of the Red Hook Criterium Brooklyn Navy Yard.
The event is free for spectators. Qualifying heats start at 6 p.m., the 5K at 9 p.m. and the criterium at 9:45 p.m. A spectator area at the start/finish line will offer fans an exclusive view of the racing action. A limited number of tickets will be sold to benefit the new Athlete Support program, launched to provide additional support to the top 25 riders in the
championship standings.
For more detailed race info, visit or the official page on Facebook. You can also check out a recap of stage one, held at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal earlier this spring, complete with video.

      Hey Rockstar*, and company, WORTH mentioning that the location Red Hook was featured in a news-cast updating the trouble spots of Super Storm Sandy last year, prior to Christmas, they were poor residents struggling Before the storm hit and I suspect Sandy storm victims STILL need our/your support. As is the case in Oklahoma currently with the bout of Tornadoes, it's when everyone's help is most appreciated!

              I'd LOVE to see a TEAM ROCKSTAR GAMES at Tour de France...ever thought about that,
              if you're in to cycling, R* ? The yellow jersey from day one huh :) Or perhaps pink - as TEAM ONCE was forced to.

                        These are now one of the things I like about R *. They not only make good games, but they also organize bike sports events and benevolent festivals, such as the Harlem Skyscraper Classic and this one, the Red Hook Crit Championship Series.

                        Keep it up.

                        ***Rockstar*** You're The Best: :D:D:D
