This past Saturday’s Red Hook Criterium Barcelona No. 3 saw some of the championship series’ most thrilling racing yet. Congratulations to all of the athletes who participated and to winners Ivan Ravaioli, whose hard-fought performance maintains his series lead, and Kacey Lloyd who has battled series leader Ainara Elbusto all season and pulled out a victory on Saturday. 

The women's feature race included 45 competitors competing over 20 laps. Series leader Elbusto scored the fastest qualifying lap of the day at 1:43.21 and led the race taking the first and midway prime. The lead pack included Elbusto, Lloyd, and sisters Lucia and Alicia Gonzalez of Spain.

With 12 laps remaining, RHC veteran Fleur Faure attacked the Gonzalez sisters coming out of turn 10 but crashed into the barriers bringing the race to a halt. The medical staff examined Faure, who after getting to her feet told the staff she had to keep racing. The crowds began to roar, banging barrier panels and supporting Faure's tenacity while she rode to the start/finish to reset the race. Her unrelenting competitiveness and ferocious performance earned Faure the Rockstar Games Award for Top Antagonist. Elbusto controlled the final laps with Vittoria Reati and Lloyd behind. In the final lap, Lloyd attacked out of the hairpin in the second dramatic sprint to the finish between Lloyd and Elbusto we've seen this series. Lloyd maintained her lead ahead of Elbusto to win by half a wheel.

The men's race started with series leader Ivan Ravaioli taking the first lap prime away from four-time consecutive prime winner Mario Paz Duque of Columbia. With seven laps remaining, Paz Duque and Ravaioli opened up a massive 20 second lead over the field with Paz Duque leading the way, but then with just two laps remaining a race neutralizing crash brought out the red flags, halting the race. A furious Paz Duque waved his arms as he passed through the start finish line and ignited the crowd. As the race was reset, Paz Duque's fans were chanting his name, jumping up and down, and bringing the crowd to properly rowdy excitement.

In the final two laps, the leaders were granted their 20-second gap, followed by the chase pack in a delayed start. 
Ravaioli attacked Paz Duque with half a lap remaining and sprinted out of turn 10 to take the final victory. Paz Duque naturally took the Rockstar Games Top Antagonist award for his performance. 

The final round of the Red Hook Criterium Championship Series 2015 heads to Milan on October 10. Keep an eye on the Red Hook Crit Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more news and updates as the series finale approaches.

Crew Cut: The Top Daily Objective Crews & Off-Road All Stars

Posted on September 2 2015, 11:21am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The Crew Cut highlights exceptional grassroots community activity, events, accomplishments and other happenings across the thriving Social Club Crew scene. If your Crew is doing something special that you think the Social Club community needs to know about, hit us up at and tell us all about it – you might see your Crew featured in an upcoming edition of the Crew Cut.


It takes commitment and often serious teamwork to complete the GTA Online Daily Objectives, particularly if you're gunning for the weekly or monthly stacking bonuses. For a whole Crew to be as committed to completing them as Schleppo is, that's quite impressive. The 10 members of this squad have completed 810 Daily Objectives between them. Even without the stacking bonuses, completing 810 Daily Objectives is worth around GTA$7M - or if one person had completed them on consecutive days, a massive GTA$14.5M.

Shout out to the Crews rounding out the Top 5. Albachoross are an all-Japanese PS4 Crew who have just recently celebrated their 6 month anniversary on Social Club. The XenoAssassins, led by MissTwisted GTA, are "all about gaming - LIKE A BOSS!" on Xbox 360. The Cokney Rhymin Limeys will have been flying their whimsical flag for 2 whole years now, having originally been formed just in time for the original launch of GTAV on PS3 and Xbox 360. Finally, Bro Of Alta Street take their name from one of the central roadways in Downtown Los Santos, where we can presume they hang out when not completing their average of more than 52 Daily Challenges each.


For more info on future Off-Road All-Stars events be sure to check out their official rally site at:

Since appearing in the Crew Noticeboard back in May, the Xbox One-based Off-Road All-Stars, led by charismatic Crew Leader and YouTuber IvI-Ph03nix-IvI, have gone from strength to strength, putting together a comprehensive website and even distributing their own elaborate and high-quality e-zine. Recently, Ph03nix collaborated with Commissioners Stevedogg51 and Yello Cactus to bring this Crew's vision for an official Racing Championship to fruition. The Rally Championship has its own separate website with information on how to sign-up, previous results and the forthcoming schedule. Here's how it works:

The championship consists of four major rally rounds known as The McKenzie Rally, The Chiliad Mountain RallyThe Redwood Classic and The Palmer Taylor Trophy. The lowest cumulative time across all four rounds determines the winner. Designed with multiple dates for players to post their time and no limit on the number of competitors taking part, players who sign up are asked to pick one custom ride from a specific vehicle class and use that same selection throughout the championship round. Each round's selected track is posted a week in advance to allow all competitors time to practice. Check out this promo video for a quick summary.

On the designated Race Night, all entrants join the Race and go for three laps, which break down as follows:

  • First lap: a warm-up lap tackled as a group to learn the course. All Racers must pull off the track before hitting the last check point.
  • Second lap: Racers take turns to set their time over the course of the second lap. This is recorded on the rally leaderboard.
  • Final lap: completed in group formation for a show of unity.

The primary reason behind the inclusion of having only one hot lap is to add to the pressure of each Racer to perform to their utmost best in front of their peers. To make the rally truly interactive, the rounds are broadcast on Twitch in cinematic mode with live commentary from none other than Ph03nix herself.

Above we see McKenzie Rally winner AUDISPORTQUATTRO taking the ROAR podium with an impressive finishing time of 5:27.571, placing a full 13 seconds in front of 2nd.

All throughout July and August, racers took part in the McKenzie Rally with AUDISPORTQUATTRO taking 1st place. Moving towards September, Racers are now practicing and preparing for the Chiliad Mountain Rally - a trek that takes drivers through unforgiving cliff-side tracks along Raton Canyon straight out to the Alamo Sea and North Chumash. On this course, ROAR organizers warn:

"One mistake could cost you the stage, round or even the Championship. Undulating and uneven tracks make every corner a challenge. Too fast and you'll flip off the cliffs and lose time, too slow and your rivals will eclipse your time. So then, what are your tactics going to be?"
From dusk till dawn, these shots from the first rounds of the rally reveal some pretty grueling racing conditions out in Grapeseed.

The Off-Road All Stars also recently launched PC and PS4 chapters for their Crew. There's still plenty of room on the roster if you want to get involved. The original Xbox One Crew is now maxed out, but if you ask Pho3nix nicely she may set-up an overflow Crew so that you can join them. However, the Group A section of the ROAR Rally Championship is open to all Crews so definitely hit up Stevedogg51 and Yello Cactus if you think you have what it takes to compete alongside some solid racers.


Hillbilly_Agenda Crew Leader KnoxNerd reached out recently to let us know that his IRL quest to hand-deliver custom plates to his fellow Crew members continues. This time, his travels took him out to the Northwestern climate of Oregon, more specifically the small town of Vernonia, where he and fellow Crew member Gnarlinshreds attended the Vernonia Friendship Jamboree & Logging Show - which seems appropriate given the Crew's focus on outdoor life and comradery.

The Red Hook Criterium Barcelona No. 3 this Saturday, September 5th

Posted on September 1 2015, 10:24am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Rockstar

The Red Hook Criterium Championship Series continues on to Barcelona for the third consecutive year this Saturday, September 5th, as 300 athletes from over 30 different countries will convene at a beautiful water-front circuit in Parc Del Fòrum to compete in the ongoing race series. With all top ten competitors in both the men’s and women’s fields returning, there’s likely to be an intense battle for the final podium in the third race of the four part series that began in Brooklyn this past April and continued on to London in July.

The women’s series is led by pro cyclist Ainara Elbusto Arteaga (79 points) who has been an absolute force, placing on the podium in the past 4 events. Kacey Lloyd (57 points) – sporting the Rockstar Games racing suit – is in the hunt with two podium finishes over the 2015 series, closely followed by France’s pro rider Fleur Faure (52 points). The women’s field is growing in Barcelona, including representation by Olympic Chilean mountain biker Francisca Campos

The men’s field is tied between two ferocious riders. Red Hook Crit newcomer William Guzman (59 points) raised eyebrows in Brooklyn with a 4th place finish in his RHC premier, then dazzled crowds at London with a dramatic sprint in the final 300m for first place. He shares first place with Brooklyn winner Ivan Ravaioli (59 points), followed by perennial favorite Thibaud Lhenry (50 points). We are excited to see road cyclist David Santos and US Criterium pro Rahsaan Bahati try their luck in their first appearances at the Red Hook Crit.

For friends of Rockstar in Barcelona or nearby, entrance is free to enjoy a full day of cycling and an evening of high-intensity racing. For more information visit or check out the official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

GTA Online Player-Created Jobs: Inspired by The Epsilon Program

Posted on August 27 2015, 10:32am | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Truth seekers rejoice, the time is nigh to partake in player-created GTA Online Jobs inspired by the Epsilon Program. Don't be an antithesis, bookmark these Epsilon Program-themed Jobs on Social Club to experience them for yourself. Kifflom!

Cult of Cash by Reaper-5150 (PC)
"Cults love money, but so do you. Steal back the money from the Epsilon Program! KIFFLOM"

You and your team find yourselves battling it out in and around The Epsilon Program headquarters in the second Job created by the Leader of the Benvenuti Family on PC. You're up against not only the rival unit, but also droves of cultists protecting the apocalypse funds they've bilked over the years. There are tons of Health and Armor pickups within the gates and a respawn will land you on a motorcycle that will allow you to easily maneuver your way back into the Epsilon Building.

Gunshots ring out at the Epsilon Headquarters in Cult Of Cash.

* BLOOD N' FIRE * by GerardDepardieux (PS3 & PS4)
Violent fights on top of Mount Chiliad. Take a drink. Enjoy the view. KIFFLOM"

This Team Deathmatch fittingly takes place at the location of the first Epsilon Tract. Set to night with forced Molotovs as your starting weapon, put the flame to your enemies as you gather the Baseball Bats, Crowbars and Nightsticks that have been scattered around to finish off your charred foes.

Altruist Camp Offensive by Griefballer99 (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)
The cultists must defend themselves against the Cult Stoppers. The cultists have a wide range of weapons but no transport, and the Cult Stoppers are armed with Military vehicles but only a Combat MG."

As Leader of The Shrekist Church, a Crew whose followers dedicate their lives to the Ogrelord Shrek, Griefballer99 may know a thing or two about cults. In this LTS, the Cult Stoppers have shifted their focus from the Epsilon Program to target the Altruists. Mentioned in the Job's description, one team will have a variety of transport options while the other will have heavy artillery. If you’ve spawned at the Paleto Forest Sawmill, your best bet is to grab up the Insurgent-Pickup fitted with its powerful .50 caliber machine gun. If your home base is the Altruist Camp, have a teammate head up to the guard tower where there is a strategically placed RPG to take out the opposing team vehicles.

Going With The Downflow by DannBoeing (PC)
"Let go. Let the flow wash over you. Let it wash away all your troubles. Breathe. Leave the city behind you. Let Kraff take the wheel. Envelope yourself in his warm embrace. Enter the 10th Paradigm. Listen to the words of the wind and the trees. Only the descendants of Kraff can hear them. Let the flow be your guide. Hydroplane yourself to enlightenment. A new plane of existence. Be one with Kraff. Kifflom Brother! And may infinite peace and wisdom be yours!"

The Leader of the Don’t Judge Me Monkey Crew has created 26 Races so far on PC. This particular Epsilon-inspired one spans Tongva Hills, Tongva Valley and Banham Canyon. To make for a more challenging Race, use the default laps and weather settings so you can "hydroplane yourself to enlightenment".

Supercars hydroplane round a tight turn in Going With The Downflow.

Kifflom! by Kingglo_the_Pro (PS3 & PS4)
"The antitheses attacked our Epsilon Center. It's time to fight for Kraff, brother-brother! Kifflom!"

This Deathmatch in the heart of The Epsilon Program Headquarters has Spawn Points spread out evenly throughout the map, so while you won’t know where you’ll end up you can rest assured that you’ll land not too far from a much needed Armor or ammo refill. Head for higher ground and make use of the Sniper Rifles strategically placed around the roof, or nab some Sticky Bombs and attach them where your enemies least expect it.

San Chianksi Race by chocolate83 (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)
"Venez arpenter ces vertigineuses montagnes reputés selon Fabien Larouche et Cris Formage pour y dégager un karma très bienveillant. Il est indéniable de dire que vous y trouverez la paix éternelle.....littéralement." (Translation: “Stride across these breathtakingly high mountains, famous for emitting a benevolent karma, according to Fabien Larouche and Cris Formage. There is no doubt that you will find... eternal peace there.“)

LE Clan Pasta’s own chocolate83 has created this challenging Bike Race starting at the San Chianski Mountain Range, winding through Mount Gordo and finishing in the industrial community of Grapeseed. Don’t go too fast as you make your way on the spines of the mountain ranges, one wrong move and you will find yourself face first in a mound of dirt. Since a majority of this race is off-road, hop on a custom Sanchez for your best shot at "eternal peace".

And make sure to tune in this Friday, August 28th at 5pm ET (that’s 10pm BST and 2pm Pacific) to watch The Rockstar Broadcast Team playing these Jobs live with invited creators and other special guests – at and Make sure to subscribe and follow Rockstar in both places to get automatically notified when the livestream begins.
