Italian media company Lab8 recently caught up with David Trimble, the founder and organizer of Red Hook Criterium and various other cycling races. It is always interesting to see how a grassroots event such as this comes about, and the humble stories told by Trimble are interesting for cyclists, but also for anyone who enjoys independently organized events. What started out as a race for his birthday has now become an international event with races in Brooklyn and Milan, where racers from around the world travel to compete on a simple street circuit. Trimble is a busy man and he has many events planned for the future, including more Red Hook Criterium races. Get an inside look at the man behind the popular cycling competition.
