Red Hook Crit London No.3 Recap

Buzzing with fans who braved the rain to see intense racing action and enjoy the festival-like atmosphere, London’s iconic Greenwich Peninsula was the site for the second leg of the 2017 Red Hook Crit Championship Series this past Saturday. With the series continuing to unfold in thrilling fashion, the top competitors battled for valuable points to separate themselves in the standings. Congratulations to winners Filippo Fortin from Italy and Raphaele Lemieux from Canada for finishing the day on top, as well as all of the day’s tireless competitors. Rockstar Games Top Antagonist Award winners in good form. Photo by Tornanti.cc With all eyes on last year’s dominant women’s field winner Dani King, series leader Eléonore Saraiva lead off the line before being quickly overtaken by Lemieux who would go on to take the first lap prime. King took position near the front along with Lemieux, Saraiva and other pre-race favorites Jasmine Dotti, Tanja Erath, Carla Nafría and Brooklyn Champion Colleen Gulick. Erath led the most laps - winning her the Rockstar Games Top Antagonist Award for the second consecutive race. King attacked several times, which stretched out the field but she could not shake Dotti, Nafría, Saraiva and Lemieux. In the final lap, Lemieux attacked through the chicane and took the lead through the finish.  Raphaele Lemieux (Team iBike) had a tremendous ride in London taking her qualifying heat, both primes, and the overall. Photo by Tornanti.cc The men’s race started off fast - with several riders contesting the first lap prime, which would ultimately go to Marius Petrache (making his 20th Red Hook Crit appearance). The early pace was set by Eamon Lucas, who was controlling the field until his teammate and series leader Stefan Schafer could make his way to the front. Schafer flatted two laps later, while his Specialized / Rocket Espresso teammate Alec Briggs suffered the same fate shortly after. Schafer was out for the race, but Briggs was quick on his feet and grabbed a teammate’s bike from the sidelines to continue racing, costing him 15 seconds, and with Schafer out of the race the door opened up for Strickland to take the series lead.  Colin Strickland takes the series lead by a mere 3 points, he will be a target in Barcelona. Photo by Tornanti.cc At the front, Olivier Leroy beat out Petrache for the mid race prime with Davide Vigano, Filippo Fortin and Martino Poccianti joining them near the front. With 15 laps to go, a red flag crash near the front of the race caused several riders to hit the deck. The race had to be restarted and Lucas wasted no time taking the front, his efforts earning him the Rockstar Games Top Antagonist Award.  Alec Briggs chasing down Timon Seubert on his way to a 3rd place finish. Photo by Tornanti.cc Meanwhile, series leader Colin Strickland made his way to the front of the field and the steady tempo allowed Briggs to get back into the lead group. With three laps to go, Strickland made his bid for glory. Vigano and Fortin instantly marked his move and the riders pushed the pace – each waiting for the other to crack or make a mistake. In the last lap, Strickland could not hold off Fortin and Vigano who both jumped past to take first and second, while a resurgent Briggs would battle Strickland to take third place. Filippo Fortin sprinted to the win in London over Davide Vigano. Photo by Tornanti.cc The thrilling finishes in each race have made for tight series standings. Strickland occupies first, a mere three points ahead of Vigano, while Saraiva sits first in the women’s field only one point ahead of Lemieux. We’re looking forward to seeing how the next phase of this closely contested series plays out when the scene shifts to Barcelona on September 2nd.  Big thanks as well go out to all the attendees from the dedicated Rockstar and GTA fan community who traveled out from across the UK and beyond to enjoy this weekend's festivities.

Red Hook Crit London No. 3: Saturday, July 22nd

For the third consecutive year, the Greenwich Peninsula outside the O2 Arena in London plays host to the second leg of the Red Hook Criterium Championship Series. Featuring a new course direction designed to emphasize the final 3 corners, an expanded Super Pole session and the return of the new qualifying format seeing heat races throughout the afternoon, this year's racing matched with a slew of food and beverage vendors will make Red Hook Crit London another stellar event. Colin Strickland, out of the championship lead for the first time since the start of 2016, leads a jam packed field in the ultra-competitive Men's series. Strickland sits just two points behind Stefan Schafer after they finished 1-2 in Brooklyn back in April. Other notables include top contender and fan-favorite Augusto Reati, elite German track racer Nico Heßlich making his RHC debut, Francesco Martucci making his 20th start in the series, and local rider Alec Briggs, who has won countless races in the lead up to this race and should be considered a threat to win. In the Women's series, Brooklyn winner Colleen Gulick will make her European Red Hook Crit debut, as she tries to strengthen her position in the standings against fierce competition - including last year's winner, Olympic gold medalist and three time world champion Dani King MBE. King, who won in dominating fashion last year, brings with her a strong group of fellow British athletes competing for the first time this year: Amy Hill, Bethany Taylor, Megan Chard, Poppy Thompson and Pia Henningfeld. The race is free for all spectators and we encourage everyone to come check it out. For more details visit redhookcrit.com or check out their official Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
