The Red Hook Crit Heads to Barcelona
World-class road racers, track specialists, bike messengers and urban cyclists from fifteen countries around the world will converge on Barcelona, Spain this Saturday for the third stage of the Red Hook Criterium Cycling Series - comprising the most international field in series history.
Taking place at the Parc Del Forum overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, top riders like Kyle Murphy, Evan Murphy, Walton Brush, Marc Marino and former Red Hook Criterium Milano champion Jon Ander Ortuondo will all be gunning for championship series leader and back-to-back winner of the first two events, Neil Bezdek. Bezdek held off the brothers Murphy in successive races at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and Cruise Terminal earlier this spring to take a commanding lead in this year's standings and also surpass Dan Chabanov as the winningest Red Hook Criterium athlete.
