The Red Hook Criterium is an unsanctioned race series consisting of
world-class road racers, track specialists, bike messengers, and urban
athletes competing over multiple laps around a short, technical circuit. Fixed
gear track bikes are mandatory and require riders to possess both street-tuned
handling skills and high levels of fitness.

"We’re honored to be sponsoring the 2013 Red Hook Criterium Championship
Series," said Simon Ramsey, Head of Public Relations at Rockstar Games. “We’re
thrilled to be able to support the local community through cycling, something
that’s close to the hearts of many of us at Rockstar.”

Traditionally held twice a year, the RHC is expanding in 2013 into a four-part
championship series with races in select urban locations across the world.
After the first round at Red Hook’s Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in March, riders
will take to the streets of Brooklyn again for a new event at the famous
Brooklyn Navy Yard in June. The series then moves to mainland Europe for the
next stop in Barcelona, Spain in August before crowning its first ever World
Champion in Milan, Italy in early October.

"Rockstar Games has opened a new world of opportunity for the Red Hook
Criterium," added race founder, David Trimble. "Having Rockstar’s support and
faith behind the RHC has allowed the development of a year-long schedule of
races that will build tremendous growth for urban cycling culture across the

The Red Hook Criterium is a key event for the community that attracts
thousands of participants and visitors every year. The race brings together
fans, families and local businesses to promote urban cycling and the vibrant
neighborhoods that play host to each race - particularly important in Red Hook
after the events of Hurricane Sandy.

"The Red Hook Criterium will be promoting initiatives that support the
rebuilding efforts and growing community spirit after Hurricane Sandy,"
concluded David Trimble. "I owe everything to Red Hook and it is a fundamental
priority that we serve the neighborhood and all those affected by the storm."

In the same spirit the RHC will work closely with the communities and
businesses surrounding the races in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Barcelona, and
