VIDEO: Huge Crash at RedHook Crits
The Red Hook Criteriums are contested on fixed wheel bikes with no brakes and crashes are frequent, the most recent incident is one of the most spectacular pile-ups.
In the women's race just after the start, one rider hits a cone and crashes setting of a domino effect that catches out nearly the whole field behind.
The race was re-started and only rider pulled out. Last year a stalled motorcycle caused a huge crash. In Milan a rider hit the headlines after snapping his bike in half in anger after getting caught in a crash.
The next round in the series will take place in London on July 22nd.
