Red Hook Crit No.10 - Focus on the Photographers - Melissa

During this years RHC I decided to take a look beside me and photograph some of the homies that work hard capturing the red hook crit experience. Some say that the race wouldn't be what it is today without the messengers that competed in the past. Well i believe that the race wouldn't be what it is today without the amazing photographers that have the talent to capture all of red hook crit's special moments with the entire world.

I asked New York native, Melissa Holtz 6 Questions about her experience photographing the 10th Edition of the Red Hook Criterium series. Check out what she has to say below and make sure to check out her take of the race on instagram & .com
