Red Hook Crit Brooklyn 2014, fixed gear video New York

Heavy rain brought a tense day leading up to this year’s Red Hook Crit. Threats of cancellation and worries of increased danger on the course were relieved when the race finally started, 2 hours before its scheduled time, with a modified course and a shortened number of laps. Nevertheless riders came out in full force to battle the elements and each other.

Now in it’s 7th year, what started out as an informal birthday party for organizer David Trimble has become an international event. Hundreds of competitors from over 20 different countries descend on the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook to race on brakeless fixed-gear track bikes, and this year in the rain. The race is fast and intense, with only the strongest and smartest of riders able to overcome the fury and seize the title.

Team Cinelli Chrome, fixed gear team

"Track bike, fixed-gear, brakeless. No freewheel, no stops. Creative and competitive. This is Team Cinelli Chrome. Different from others living cyclism. No pro-director, masseurs or official mechanics. An independent, semi-organized posse, perfectly self-sufficient, total autonomy travelers. It takes shape to race six international Fixed Gear Criteriums, and blends into the urban fabric after the races. A handful of characters borrowed from the city: bike messengers, track champions, and former Pro Tour mechanics.

(…)

Cinelli and Chrome have contributed to the dawn of this world. Before it was fashionable. Against any rational reason or strategic marketing idea. People thought we were fools. Today they chase. Joined by common values and mutual respect for making great products, Cinelli and Chrome are proud to support Team Cinelli Chrome.”

Red Hook Crit 7 Brooklyn 2014, fixed gear video New York

"The Red Hook Crit first hit the cobbles of Red Hook in 2008. With less than 20 competitors. Now with almost 300 racers fighting for position to qualify, RHC has grown immensely. Crowds in the thousands come to Red Hook Brooklyn to cheer on friends, family or just simply to spectate.

This year RHC has added a women’s field to the program to add to the mens race and the mens and women’s running race. With a full schedule in 2014, there was only one challenge in everyones way. The weather!

With 30 plus women in the starting line, everyone was excited for the first installment of the RHC women’s field. Ash Duban was selected by Trimble Racing as the favorite.She did not disappoint by qualifying first to meet that pressure. On the mens side it was Neil Bezdek who was picked the pre-race favorite to come back and win the race again. Watch as an exciting race filled evening unfolded in both crits.

Thanks to the support of I love NY more than you, Bikestock, Bicycle Film Festival and Trimble Racing.

The awesome crew who braved the weather all day.”

Pedalea o Revienta, fixed gear video Barcelona Valencia

"One day you decide to take your bike, escape from the city and start riding as many kilometers as your body can resist. You may ride 30km, 200km… Each person has his or her own limits.

This idea came up to 10 mindless guys who decided to check where their limit was. They settled a goal: cycling from Barcelona to Valencia in just one day: 370Km in a fixed gear bike, which meant forcing the body to the limit, a non stop pedaling, pedaling or burst! 

On May the 25th , these guys took off from Barcelona at 4a.m with their fixed gear bikes heading to Valencia in one day.

They were followed by a van with two assistants, and they completed their trip arriving to Valencia the following day at 00:35am. Guys from “De Que Bikes” shop and other people were waiting for them. They gave them a nice welcome party and celebrated with them those 14 hours they spent on the top of their bikes.”
