After an intense series of races from Brooklyn to Barcelona, the 2013 Red Hook Criterium came to its dramatic conclusion with the final leg in Milan, Italy this past weekend. Congrats to Eduard Grosu, who came in first and Neil Bezdek, who was crowned 2013 series champion after a strong 3rd place finish in Saturday's race. 200 riders from over 15 countries vied for the 85 qualifying positions in what wound up being the fastest course in the history of the RHC, according to race organizer David Trimble.

For the top riders, the best strategy was to get out in front as quickly as possible, to avoid trouble, set a furious pace  and to hold onto the top positions throughout the race. Pre-race favorites, Bezdek, Grosu and Evan Murphy took turns at the front, pushing the pace and trying to break away from the chasing pack. This tactic worked and by the later stage of the race a group of 20 riders had made a significant gap, lapping many of the other riders out the race. Congratulations go out to Grosu for his first RHC win, to Bezdek for taking the championship, and to Stefan Vis, brothers Evan and Kyle Murphy and Rainier Schaefer for their top tier performances throughout the series. Compliments are also in order for race director David Trimble, for creating an incredibly exciting international racing series.  Check out the full results for Milan and the overall championship series below, and for more details be sure to check out, along with the official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr

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.

Congratulations to Stefan Vis of The Netherlands (WIT Industries Team F.A.S.T Amsterdam) for winning the 3rd stage of the Red Hook Criterium on August 24th in Barcelona, Spain.
Vis won the final sprint, breaking out from a 6 man group that included both Evan and Kyle Murphy, who finished in 2nd and 5th place respectively. Series leader Neil Bezdek slid out on the slick turn 8 and finished a distant 13th. With solid finishes from both of the Murphys and an unfortunate turn of events for Bezdek, the once seemingly insurmountable gap in the Overall Championship Series points standings has tightened as we head into the series finale on October 12th in Milan, Italy. Vis also remains mathematically alive in the championship standings thanks to his win on Saturday.

The race at Parc del Forum was an exciting, fast and technical circuit. While it was a beautiful day in Barcelona throughout qualifying, the moment riders started lining up for the final race was precisely when the rain started to come down. Tension was high as the rain picked up throughout the first few laps, but eventually the storm passed and the competitors began to open it up, tearing through the fastest course of the series so far.
The 2013 series concludes on Saturday, October 12th with the Red Hook Crit Milano from Milan, Italy. For more from Saturday's race visit and check them out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.
