The women’s finale at the Red Hook Criterium in Brooklyn got off to a rocky start on April 29, when one cyclist’s fall caused a huge pile-up involving about two dozen riders.

The 22-lap race featured <a href="https://www.mysdam.net/events/event/results-v6_35605.do" target="_blank">60 riders</a> racing around a <a href="https://redhookcrit.com/brooklyn-no-10/athlete-info" target="_blank">1,130-meter</a> track on <a href="https://redhookcrit.com/rules/technical-rules/" target="_blank">fixed-gear bikes, with brakes</a> prohibited for all competitors.

A similar incident was filmed at the event in 2016. See <a href="https://twitter.com/somebadideas/status/726638143491969024" target="_blank">here</a>.

Two attendees at the race, the Sawyer Adventure Club and <a href="https://www.facebook.com/sideshowmel29" target="_blank">Melvin Coronado</a>, shared videos of the crash to Instagram on April 30. Storyful has contacted both uploaders for clearance.
