Rockstar Games Presents the Red Hook Criterium Brooklyn No.9

Posted on April 26 2016, 10:32am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar

We are looking forward to kicking off the 2016 season of world-class racing with the Red Hook Crit Brooklyn No.9, this Saturday at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal.

375 cyclists and 350 runners hailing from 48 countries are descending on Red Hook to participate in the annual 5k running race and feature bike races. We’re excited to see the familiar faces of elite veterans, as well as imposing newcomers, registered in the men’s and women’s start lists.  

There are also exciting new changes to the racing format; this year’s start line introduces the “YVO Grid”, an arrow-shaped starting grid where the fastest qualifier takes lone wolf pole position as the tip of the spear, while the remaining 94 racers are spread no more than 5 riders per row. The circuit itself has been shortened to 1.13km per lap, giving spectators an improved field of view, with a new double hairpin added in turns 2 and 3. 

We’re also proud to bring back the Rockstar Award for Top Antagonist for both the men’s and women’s races, rewarding the athlete who without consideration for their final position most affects the outcome of the race through a combination of tactics, aggressiveness and strength. 

For an in-depth look at the race details, athletes and more, check out the Official Strava Race Guide and for all things Red Hook Crit, visit redhookcrit.com or check them out on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

The 2016 Red Hook Criterium Championship Cycling Series

Posted on March 10 2016, 1:01pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar

Rockstar Games is proud to announce the return of the Red Hook Criterium Championship Series in 2016, continuing our ongoing support as title sponsor of the international track bike racing series for the 4th straight year.

With four spectacular events scheduled in Brooklyn, London, Barcelona and Milan, competitors will race laps around an approximately 1km circuit filled with turns, chicanes, and hairpins – on brakeless, fixed gear track bikes hitting speeds up to 35 mph. Taking cues from international motorsport, athletes first compete in timed qualification rounds to establish grid positions for the finals. These finals, traditionally raced at night, are held in front of thousands of cheering spectators who bring the crit’s signature festival atmosphere to life at every destination.

2016 SCHEDULE:
•    April 30: Brooklyn, NY, USA
•    July 9: London, UK
•    August 27: Barcelona, Spain
•    October 1: Milan, Italy

Athletes accumulate points for finishing each race, traveling from one city to the next, vying for a position on the championship podium. With the continued, four-race schedule, riders will need to perform consistently if they are to contend for the series trophy with each race undoubtedly bringing its own dynamism throughout the season. 2015 Series Champions Ivan Ravaioli (Team Cinelli Chrome, Italy) and Ainara Elbusto (Conor WRC, Spain) will return in 2016 to defend their titles against fierce rivals and ambitious newcomers alike.
 
For those who don’t always net points but race with tenacity and determination, there’s the coveted Rockstar Games Top Antagonist Trophy to be awarded in both the men’s and women’s feature races to the athlete who without consideration for their final position, most affects the outcome of the race through a combination of tactics, determination, and sheer strength.

For more details, visit redhookcrit.com and make sure to follow the official Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
