Team Jeni’s cyclocrosser Aidan Seufert (seen above in action last fall) is off to do battle this weekend at the Red Hook Crit, a nasty endurance race on Brooklyn’s city streets.

Aidan, in this recent excellent piece by Columbus Underground, says the competition “draws bicycle messengers from all over the world, semi-professional track athletes, and avid cyclists from all corners (who) can take a shot at trying to murder themselves on a brakeless, single speed machine.”

Added Aidan without irony: “That’s what interested me about the Red Hook Crit.”

Ride hard, Aidan, and give ’em hell in Red Hook.
