    I was at the Red Hook Crit this Sat - amazing pace, such a rough track around the Navy Yard!!! Luckily I live right next door :)
    I'm a Brooklyn artis myself, never thought i'd get thrilled by car, bike or any other kind of racing. After the Red Hook Crit in March, I got inspired and wrote a song about racing. Would love to share it with everybody here!

      @OlyaBKL That was really good.

      @jaar04 the race or the song? I will assume both )))

      @OlyaBKL Nice song, I liked it. :) Can I listen to more of your music somewhere?

      @OlyaBKL Nice. Cycling is a major passion for a lot of the Rockstar staff in New York, and it's awesome to see an artist such as yourself be inspired to by the Red Hook Crit to write a song.

      @ Thank you, guys! Great to see your support of these events - cycling is a huge part of New York culture. Yup, you never know where you can find your inspiration - it was a very pleasant surprise for me, so I'm a big fan ever since...

      If you would like to use this song for any of your cycling compilation videos, please feel free. It would be my pleasure!!!

        @R* Me and my girl attended the 145th Belmont Stakes from Belmont Park over here in Elmont, NY ( Queens ) and it was a great time. Next stop is to shoot on over to BK to watch this race. We might even volunteer for the clean up as well and try to score two Race Crew t-shirts. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Will try to snap some pics!

        ( I ended up losing $125 during the horse race. ) :/ Should've picked 'Palace Malice'.

              @LILnutsack Cool vid. A lot of top, pro cyclists compete in the Crit. We do know of at least one messenger who is competing - he placed 26th out of 100 riders in the last round and if you're interested, there's a good interview with him here:

              LMAO out of all the sports you guys could choose from, you make a cycling team?! lol come on guys really? this better be some community service you got forced to do. why not something cool like rally truck racing or a drift team?
              • R* Qon June 7 2013, 6:36pmReplyFlag
                @MadCityy Sorry if the sport of cycling isn't your particular cup of tea, but many of us here at Rockstar happen to be great fans of the sport and we're very proud to support the Red Hook Crit. If you're a fan of competitive racing you should check out the video above if you haven't already - there's quite a bit of intense, fast-paced action in these short course races.

                @ Hey R* you should add this race to GTAV so we can all experience this race. :)

                @m-one_hundred There will be triathlon they stated, and guess what is a part of a triathlon? Bike race! Like that early screen remember? That cyclist with the Del Perro pier in the background!

                maybe because he can't do it better? lol
                So he thinks that sport MUST have something to do with pain |D

                Too many cheaters in this sport.

                  The cycling sport is always good to look at, but do you also car racing, I mean supporting a team in the car racing or something that would be crazy. I also love racing and sports cars.
                  Hah, maybe something in the future the name from Rockstargames or a huge R* logo on a race car :)

                  Games and Sports with ***Rockstar*** Is Always Good :D :D :D

                      So R* sponsors the Signature Cycles team? I didn't know that!

                      This is why we read about the RHC!

                      what about a Red Hook Crit Los Santos in a future multiplayer event?!?
