East London Fixed experience Red Hook Crit Brooklyn

Bell sponsored athletes, East London Fixed headed to Brooklyn in April to race at the Red Hook Crit, one of the leading fixed gear criterium races in the world. ELF Rider and Team Manager Owen Blandy sets the scene for what is one of the most eagerly anticipated weekends on their race calender...

A second trip to New York for Red Hook Crit for me, but it was my first with a proper race team. 10 of us in total, 7 guys and 3 girls – It was really inspiring to see a group of friends coming together to form a race team. The race and resultant performances were almost redundant in the presence of such a positive team environment.

Crit week was in full flow and we were busy traversing the square grid streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Often riding together through traffic before someone would get carried away; The pace would ramp up and we would effectively be racing each other on foreign streets, skimming through traffic, whistling past yellow taxis and over American size potholes!.

A quick stop at Maglia Rosa bike shop followed for both coffee and to pick up our brand spanking new Custom Bell Zephyr Helmets. They look awesome!

For the all fun that was had over the last few days, it was nearly race day and I could tell that the team were beginning to focus...
