It’s the summer of the track bike criterium and with the Red Hook Crit Barcelona approaching, it’s perfect timing to share some photos from Darren Haggar. Check out more photos from the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard here!

Walton has been absolutely killing the track bike criteriums over the past few years and at this year’s Red Hook Crit, Brian Vernor got this great portait of him.

Chris’ photos are always great and his 35mm shots from the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard race are nothing short of exceptional. Head on over to his Flickr for more! That portrait of Dan is awesome man.
I don’t know about you, but I love looking at photos from the Red Hook Crit races from what I would consider photographers who are “new” to documenting cycling. Some of the best editorial pieces in cycling’s history were written by fresh eyes. Ever read Buzzati’s coverage of the 1949 Tour of Italy?
Two years ago at the Red Hook Crit in Brooklyn, I met Kathryn Friedman, a photographer who happened to ride bikes in NYC and after this year’s Navy Yard crit, she emailed me some photos. I figured I’d let the dust settle a bit from one of the most bloody Red Hook Crit events ever, prior to posting…

Josh Hartman was injured during the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard crit race and Dave Trimble is putting on a benefit auction on eBay to help aid in Josh’s medical bills. Head on over the eBay auction to place a bid!

In the Red Hook Crit coverage here on PiNP, there was a discussion about the young rider who took a nasty spill and was hospitalized. His name is Joshua “Pro” Hardman and he races for Major Taylor Development Team, an amateur race team, based in Brooklyn, NY.
He’s still in the hospital, due to excessive blood loss and needs our help. Head over to Joshua’s Go Fund Me page to find out how you can help out.
Few people know speed like Emiliano Granado. He’s one of cycling’s most creative and compelling photographers, known best from his work with Daniel Pasley on Manual For Speed and Yonder Journal. Emi’s in your face approach to documenting the sport often results in candid, up close and personal portraits in what many would consider the most inopportune time. Don’t expect podium or finish line shots from Manual For Speed because this is the real side of cycling. MFS spends every waking moment with professional cyclists. They know the tricks of the trade and in many ways, this experience makes MFS one of the most authentic resources for those wishing to see what it’s like to truly be PRO.
The Red Hook Crit Navy Yard was quite the race. A quick, technical course awaited over 100 racers and only 5 would finish. All it took was one big spill to split the field and with Neil Bezdek out in front, it seemed the race was determined after the first lap. Kyle Murphy from MASH SF held Bezdek’s wheel, placing him in second and Marc Marino from Team Chica Sexy won in a sprint for third. Everyone I’ve talked to about the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard said it was one of the fastest races they’ve been in. A true exhibition.

Neil Bezdek won the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard Brooklyn track crit last night. The course was fast and almost immediately, Neil and Kyle Murphy broke away, before being caught by Marc Marino who finished third (hell yeah dude!!!!). Finishing fourth and fifth were Alex Barouh and Cooper Ray.
A lot of the race favorites flatted out, some crashed but Neil took his fourth all-time victory at the Red Hook Crit.
