Rockstar recently announced that they will be once again sponsoring the Red Hook Criterium bike race. The third of its kind, this race will be held in Barcelona, Spain. Several well known cyclists appear on the Red Hook, with some genuinely fierce competition going on. The racers collect points during each Red Hook, which are cumulative, and there are already some stars emerging from the rosters of both the Men’s and Women’s fields.
In the Women’s field, we have the leader coming in at 79 points, making her first in the entire race, all participants included, with second and third places coming in at close 57 and 52 points.
Over on the Men’s side, we have a tie for first place with two competitors bringing 59 points, with second place trailing in at 50.
Now, news of this bike race has been posted on the Newswire, and certain fans in the comments have begun requesting Rockstar do a weekend event in GTA V while the race is on, meaning September 5.
The proposed event would include a number of bike race jobs bringing in double the cash and RP, as well as some discounts on the in-game bikes that players can purchase. Another one of those Newswire spotlights of player created bike themed missions and jobs has also been mentioned. Rockstar has yet to comment on these requests, but we’re hopeful.
Rockstar has always been great at engaging the GTA V community, so making a much requested GTA Online event a reality isn’t impossible in the slightest. A simple event as described above, pitting GTA Online players against one another equipped with two wheels and nothing more wouldn’t be hard to put together even in such limited time, but it would certainly keep the fans mighty happy.
