Fixed Gear Crit

Red Hook Crit 2016 top contenders for RHC Brooklyn 10: Tristan Uhl

With RHC BK 10 approaching quickly, we asked several RHC 2016 top contenders that are competing in Brooklyn how their season is going, what they expect of the race, themselves, and what they think of the new qualification format. In this edition we spoke to Tristan Uhl who got a 2nd in RHC Barcelona No.4 when he was beaten by Colin Strickland in a sprint-a-deux.

What are you looking forward to most in Brooklyn?
Skidding (safely) on tubulars

How is your preparation to RHC BK 10 going so far?
Pretty good. Ive been on the MTB a lot lately but it probably translates over good enough.

How are you experiences with RHC BK?
Last year was my first time and my first fixed gear crit ever. The course is fun and the crowd is rowdy.

How do you like the course?
It’s good. Tight and technical with lots of accelerations. Good for a MTB/CX racer like myself.

What are your expectations regarding how the race can go?
Aventon is taking a strong team. We’re hoping to win it with one of us.

What do you expect of yourself in RHC BK 10?
I expect that I will have one of the larger mustaches at the race.

Are you ready for RHC BK 10?
Getting there. I know what I’m getting myself into this time around and that helps a lot.
