The annual Red Hook Criterium bike race in Brooklyn ended in a pile of bruised bodies on Saturday night. It only took one biker going down to cause a massive pile of riders to slam and crash into each other. The accident occurred during the women’s final of the 22 laps race which totaled 100 cyclists.
This looks like it hurts.
Apparently this race is cursed because there was a huge crash last year as well. That one occurred during the men’s final when a pace setting motorcycle stalled out on the course.
Of yes. I have footage of that too.
So this happened at the bicycle race in Brooklyn tonight when the motorpace motorcycle stalled… pic.twitter.com/vrOrFbmrhV
