Cinelli Chrome soiree before Red Hook Crit

Slightly unsequential post as Red Hook Criterium article is out , nevertheless worth to have a look at the team Cinelli Chrome a day before they disembarked in the dry docks for what is now one of the biggest cycling events in the USA.

Friday evening.  248 Mulberry street infiltrated with bike couriers, bikepoloists and other velo enthusiasts; sipping beers munching on dumplings and hype’ing up the air. Tricks, skids and all sort of bikeperversions were executed on the street to the amusement of the sophisticated Manhattians.

How unreal it was to see the unassuming & thrilled faces of Cinelli team after the actual RHC took place. So little they knew of the imminent crashes, stitches, tears and glory, though surely everyone had their own moment of happiness & thrill, fears & doubts.

Faz Adhili below looked ruminative. The following day he was rocking ten stitches on his face. Not being able to take part in the RHC he was consoled by marshalling the squad to the start line.

The narrow but cosy Mulberry street full of organic goods’ boutiques was invaded by people people in tiny hats carrying massive rucksacks in unwalkable shoes…

A drink was drunk, a dumpling was eaten, and a bag was bought! Because a girl can never have enough.
