By 17 July 2018 July 24th, 2018 CURIOSITY, INFORMATION

In 2015 I was in London in a coffee bar after a bike training section in the English countryside

My friends started talking about the stage of Red Hook Criterium in Greenwich Peninsula, a beautiful and modern London district near O2 theater.

The Red Hook Criterium is the world’s most famous fixed race held in a citizen but technical circuit at night




I immediately checked it on the internet and look for information, videos, pictures

It is an extraordinary race where you need really great training, courage and madness to ride a brakeless fixed-gear bike at foolish speed in curved streets among 100 other cyclists!!!!

This is WhyBeNormal? world….there is no doubt

I told my friend Raffa: ‘’On 2016 WhyBeNormal? team will reach first position on teams’standing

He laughed shaking his head…he didn’t believe me…it was impossible!!!

I picked up my phone and called the athletes: 4 English, 1 German and 1 Australian.

I started drawing Broccolino body for WhyBeNormal? fixie team and so the winning race began


When I was little boy I have been told the same thing: ‘’it is impossible, you will never go to the Olympic Games’’


I attended a final Olympic Race in Los Angeles 1984


WhyBeNormal? team won Red Hook Criterium 2016 with 240 points…..
