Hey Redhook Crits, we're coming for ya!
Now ya see, LA Sweat Team Owner/Rider Kelli Samuelson doesn't come from a traditional racing background. In 2012 Kelli began racing the Redhook Crit. There was no women's race and there were only a few women lining up, all lining up and trying to qualify amongst the men. Now Redhook has it's own women's race, that's reaching crazy speeds and has attracted some major World Class talent.
That's why, fast forward 4 years later to NOW, and La Sweat is excited to announce the official launch of our Redhook #SQUAD!
Thanks to the support of our super dedicated sponsors and the addition of Kryptonite Locks (keeping us locked and loaded throughout all our adventures) and Fast Forward Wheels, we are stoked to be able to race the complete Redhook Crit Championship Series, with it's four destination races, Brooklyn, London, Barcelona & Milan.
In addition to our regular gear the Redhook Squad will be riding Vigorelli Cinelli track bikes, track-wheels from Fast Forward, tires from Challenge, and special edition skinsuits courtesy of Castelli. Grazie!
Select riders from our domestic team are super excited to drop their gears and take on a new the Fixed Gear Race Scene, including Tiffany Pezzulo, Anna Grace Christiansen, Kim Lucie and Erin Goodall. Plus, we're also super stoked to announce we'll be adding veteran Redhook favorites Fleur Faure and Ashley Faye from the other side of the pond (France and the Netherlands specifically).
This team feels unstoppable!
Follow along with us as we take on Redhook Brooklyn with Fleur, Ashley, Kelli and Erin, while the rest of the Squad will be down south racing the USA Crits Speedweek.
Keep up with us on the road by following our calendar, here (and below).
