Held at night, on brakeless, fixed-gear track bikes, in the centre of Brooklyn, Barcelona, Milan & London, the Red Hook Crit series represents the ultimate in spectacular urban bike racing. The series has grown beyond all expectation, and now attracts some of the best criterium racers, male and female, from around the world. In the above feature from Conquista issue 3, photographer François Lebeau captures the atmosphere and action of this unique series.
But there's more! At 2015's Brooklyn event François had the opportunity to meet with, photograph and interview fourteen of RHC’s riders. You can read what they had to say, and check out Francois’s portraits, in Conquista issue 10.
