Little Interview: David Trimble - Red Hook Crit
Recently we had the pleasure of meeting up with David Trimble to talk all things bikes and the Red Hook Crit of course. If you don't know, then get to know.
David grew up in Alaska where his father and uncle were frame builders and even made bikes for the US Olympic team. Although it wasn't until his sister started racing did he really get into cycling and also began racing in his early 20's. He raced road, mountain bike and alley cats too.
The RHC is a race like no other. What started as a birthday party in 2008 has turned in to an international race series, with races held in New York, Milan, Barcelona and now it's first time in London. Influenced by his own racing background David wanted to create a race which was inclusive of all riders whether you're a professional road racer, track cyclist or courier. The race consists of multiple laps around a fast technical circuit all on fixed gear bikes. As the race began to grow a separate women's category was needed. Kacey Manderfield won the very first RHC with a tight sprint leaving David in second place, she turned professional that year and will be racing in London. The first RHC in London will be held at Greenwich Peninsula with 250 men and 50 women racing. With riders coming from over 25 countries around the world. We can't wait to witness all the excitement here in London. If you're not racing then sign up to volunteer.
