On a dark and rainy night an unsanctioned bicycle race took place through the desolate streets of Red Hook, Brooklyn. Police arrived in full force yet an agreement was met to allow the race to continue. Host John Hoppin takes you through this exciting underground sporting event where racers speed past buses, navigate slick cobblestones and hairpin turns to compete for a podium position. This 16-lap track bike only race brought together Cat-2 racers, bike messengers, and urban cyclists.
