In 2008, I organized the first ever Red Hook Crit to celebrate my 26th birthday. As someone who came up with one foot in traditional road bike racing and the other in unsanctioned urban alleycat races, I wanted to create a competition that would combine the physical intensity of road races with the amazing rivalries and spirit from the urban cycling scene. Despite the modest turnout at that first RHC event in Red Hook, Brooklyn, the atmosphere was intense and the race was a memorable one, with Kacey Manderfield pulling ahead to victory in a tight sprint against her male rivals.

I’m super excited about the women’s race!
I hear there’s going to be something special for everyone riding as well!
Our friend Greg from Cuppow was in Los Angeles last week for a little vacation. I was gone for most of his visit but the day before he left, Jen and I took Greg and his beautiful Chris Chance up to the blacktop to have breakfast.
After a well rounded breakfast of donuts, coffee, and a maple-bacon chocolate bar, I figured this Chance wasn’t getting any slimmer, so I best take some photos. While this was all finger food, we still brought along the best fork ever!
