If you’re going to be in LA, you should make it out to this. I know I’ll be there!
Although I’ve never been, Barcelona seems like an ideal backdrop for the world’s first and largest track bike crit. With its bustling bike scene, this year’s event drew hundreds of spectators, one of which was photographer Hollis Duncan. Over the years, I’ve relied on Guest Galleries to supply the site with photos from events I am unable to attend and I’m really happy with what Hollis shot at the Red Hook Crit Barcelona.
The results of the 2013 Red Hook Crit Barcelona:
1. Stefan Vis
2. Evan Murphy
3. Ranier Schaefer
4. Thibaud Lhenry
5. Kyle Murphy

There are just three short days until the Red Hook Crit Barcelona goes down. Personally, I’m very pumped on this race and I wish I could be there to see it in person. To commemorate the event, Rockstar Games designed a poster for Red Hook Crit and it looks so good!
Thanks for sending this over, Dave!
Let me preface this post by saying that I haven’t been to an out of town alleycat in a long time. With all the radness happening this past weekend at the All City Championship, the main event was sure to deliver. Did it? Being Minneapolis, of course! Most of my day was spent at the start and finish, shooting portraits, documenting the racers and their bikes before heading out to the start.
A large, grassy hill stood between the racers and their rides, causing a mad dash in the beginning. After about 32 miles, everyone piled back into the parking lot at One on One and Handsome Cycles for the after party. The night moved on, as the party grew and before we knew it, we were back at a lake swimming at 2am.
Head over to Bike Jerks for the full standings from the event.
Minneapolis, you rule! Check out some portraits, bikes and other random photos from the event in the Gallery!
Track bike crits have become all the rage at local city events. These high-speed, high-tension races are enjoyed by all and offer up a taste of what it’s like to not only race in a road criterium, but also track racing. For the 2013 All City Championship, Jeff put on a track crit, to replace his normal match sprints. 50 or so racers entered, over a hundred were there to spectate and it was a great time. I haven’t had that much fun at a bike event in a while!
