Video: Freak crash caused by motorbike at Red Hook Crit
There was a massive pile-up at the Red Hook Crit in Brooklyn, New York yesterday when a motorbike stalled in front of the peloton of the Elite men’s race.
The motorbike stopped in the middle of the road, and although the first few riders managed to avoid the motorbike, others were not so lucky.
Numerous riders collided with the motorbike resulting in multiple injuries. Daniel McMahon later reported that “7 Red Hook Crit racers taken by ambulance to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.”
The series of races sees riders use fixed gears and the races are described as showcasing “athletes racing on brakeless track bikes around a short technical circuit.”
