Rockstar Games Red Hook Criterium Championship Cycling Series Kicks Off

Rockstar Games is kicking off their 2014 Red Hook Criterium Championship Cycling Series this Saturday at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in New York. This is the first of a three race series culminating in Milan, Italy.

The Criterium is a cycling street race series that pits “pro road racers, track specialists, bike messengers and urban athletes” against each other around short circuits on track bikes. The series has been around since 2008 and up until now has been a combined event, with men and women competing together. This year however, the event splits to a men’s and women’s series, with the women’s series being directed by Kacey Manderfield Lloyd, winner of the 2008 RHC and highest female finisher in each RHC since.

The schedule for this event is as follows.
