A message from race organizer, Dave August:
The Red Hook Criterium enters itâ€™s 3rd year in 2010.
As my birthday tradition this race is â€œfixedâ€ and brakeless only. The format remains the same. 20 fast laps around a tight, twisty, and dangerous circuit through the desolate Red Hook neighborhood in Brooklyn.
The racing circuit follows last yearâ€™s route including the now infamous â€œOtsego Chicaneâ€ and the â€œBeard Street Cobblesâ€.

Start Time: 11:00 pm
Race Length: 20 Laps (approx 35 minutes)
Equipment: 1. Fixed-gear brakeless required
2. Helmets required
3. 49×15 recommend gearing
4. Puncture resistant tires highly recommended
Entry Fee: $15
Primes: 1. End of the first lap
2. End of the halfway point lap.
