Registration for the upcoming Red Hook Crit opened yesterday, the 17th of February. A collaboration between Stanridge Speed and Ben EINE will produce two bicycles to be raced in the crit by Katie Arnold and Evan Murphy. Make sure you catch the quote from Ben Eine at the bottom of this post. Too funny.
Stanridge Cycles is excited to announce our collaboration with Ben EINE for the Red Hook Crit this year. EINE is a world renowned graffiti artist who has collaborated with Banksy and has work hanging in the White House. Ben will be hand painting the two iconic Stanridge High Street frames that will be raced during this years Red Hook series.
The custom bikes will be piloted by elite cyclocross racer Katie Arnold, and previous Red Hook winner Evan Murphy. Look for more from Stanridge as the bikes are done and race day approaches.
“The ego, it’s the only thing that drives us forward isn’t it? You know it’s a competition. If you’re not going to take it fucking seriously than why bother doing it? You know you want to be the biggest and the best, up in the most amount of places, the most amount of photographs over the fucking internet in the most amount of countries in the world… stupid. It’s just mad. We were kids. 20 years later Banksy’s up for an Oscar and I’ve got a painting in the White House. You can’t make this shit up…. It’s just fucking mad.” -EINE
