The Final Stage of the Red Hook Crit This Saturday in Milan

Posted on October 10 2013, 7:12pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar

On Saturday, series points leader Neil Bezdek looks to win his third race of this year's Red Hook Criterium and capture the series championship in the final stage taking place in the Bovisa district of Milan, Italy. Bezdek currently holds a 23 point lead over Kyle Murphy, with last year's Red Hook Criterium Milano winner Evan Murphy 26 points back. Stage three winner Stefan Vis is 36 points behind, and still mathematically alive for the championship after his strong showing winning the 3rd stage in Barcelona.
Meanwhile top Italian Francesco Martucci is 9th overall and eager to prove himself on home roads, while former Red Hook Criterium Milano champion Jon Ander Ortuondo from Spain is also confirmed to compete. All in all, stage 4 will feature 200 competitors from 15 countries attempting to qualify for 85 race spots.
The Red Hook Criterium features world-class road racers, track specialists, bike messengers and urban cyclists competing over multiple laps around a short technical circuit. Fixed-gear track bikes are mandatory, requiring riders to possess street-tuned handling skills and high levels of fitness. Check out a video from last year's race below:
The race is free for spectators, with qualifying heats starting at 17:00 CET and the final criterium scheduled to go off at 21:00.

You'll also be able to follow the action on race day with the free official Red Hook Crit app for iOS and Android devices.

    @R* I've been on hiatus from the Newswire for the past month due to the masterpiece that is GTA V and GTA Online. Apologies! Ha

    Looking forward to keeping up with race on the Red Hook Crit app.

    *Still praying that Cops 'n Crooks gets implemented into GTA Online at some point*

      @MAKAVELl The comic book cover style approach to the event is certainly unique. Glad you enjoyed it.

              Rockstar, you guys ever considered making a game of this? Like, you've done table tennis, why not a bike racing game where we can travel across countries and cities around the world, competing with others online? :)

                @iLewisGTA They don't really need to make one, since GTA V / Online already has race bikes haha, we could race online in that.

                The poster looks great Rockstar!

                @iLewisGTA Yes would be great to see Rockstar taking a break from crime and violence again and making a calm cycling game that reduces the stress of our trigger fingers lol
