Bram at Red Hook Crit, London (UK)

It was Red Hook Criterium in London / UK last Saturday – Bram Linnartz and his NEEDLE finally made #30, out of 251 starters from all over the globe!

Congratulations Bram, that’s so nice – especially taking into consideration that this time some professional road racing-, time trial- and trackracers again tried their luck at RHC. And which they had in the end…. so happy to see Bram beeing able to mess already now with those that earn their sustenance with pure cycling in different spheres. And as it seems the near future will bring more and more professionals from other spheres of cycling into the fixed crit game to win laurels we are happy to see Bram will be one of those that will cause them professionals some headache in the near future!
