Our friends from Cinelli stopped by last night to say hello, in town from Italy on their way to tonight’s Red Hook Criterium event in Brooklyn.
The Red Hook Criterium has grown drastically each year since its launch in 2008. Spectators are welcome and encouraged; the atmosphere is cordial, the racing is intense: Track bikes are mandatory on a circuit with hairpin turns, a technical chicane and cobblestone stretches.
Cinelli is one of the Crit’s sponsors, a perfect fit for a company with a strong reputation as a high-performance cycling brand plus a legendary heritage in both Italian design and engineering. Speaking of performance, good luck Dave and Chris! The winner buys us all some Italian espresso.
