Manual for Speed's coverage of the Red Hook Crit is a must read...

There's a TON of photographs and reports floating around the interwebs recapping last weeks Red Hook Crit. There's no doubt that the Manual for Speed crew has the best recap and a raddest set of pictures. It's a fresh and whimsical approach to the madness that was Saturday's shit storm.

Our "selection group" included, among many others, racers, RHC illuminati, longtime members of the greater RHC community, a homeless dude in SoHo, spring breaking German teenagers taking selfies in Times Square and various spectators.

Nobody thought it was an unfair characterization, everybody just said it was insensitive and like, mean or something. We asked several key members of the RHC community to explain what they meant by "mean", invariably their responses went something like this: I don't know dude, it's just not cool...?"
