Here’s the first Red Hook Crit Milano video I’ve found on Vimeo or Youtube that’s worth posting. It catches some spills at that turn everyone was complaining about as well as the final moments in the race, leading up to the finish sprint, which I still haven’t seen any video of. Who’s got it?

So yeah, the Red Hook Crit Milano sign up came and went (sorry for not posting that up) but a full roster means another packed year with an ever-increasing sense of competition. And with the prizes this year, there’s no wonder people will be gunning for it.

One of my favorite booths at Interbike this year was Dario Pegoretti‘s. Every time I walked past it, people were swarming to see the hand made steel masterpieces from Italy, rendering it almost impossible to get a clear photo of any of the frames. Since he had the only booth with hand-made track bikes in it, I had to get up close and personal with them.
While describing what makes Pegoretti Cicli’s work different from American builders, I overheard the rep say something to the effect of this: “Dario is from a long line of Italian frame builders. People who found a way to mix production with perfection. None of these American builders are capable of producing the quality and quantity as Dario…”
Arrogant? Sure. But hey, they’re Italian and with these bikes, it’s hard to argue otherwise.
