NAHBPC Results!

August 22, 2013


The North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship is over. All of the courts have been unscrewed and are now stored in a warehouse as nothing more than sheets of plywood. Everyone has either made it home and life has gone back to normal. The whole experience feels surreal but the memories are so vivid that it’s impossible to forget.

From seeing Kev’s face bleeding from two separate hits to the face, to seeing chunks of Crandall’s flesh in Lefty Joe’s commuter freewheel. From watching the near figure skating glide of Koyo carving up and down the court, to watching Kremin hang from the top of the boards, like a child laying over their parents knee, getting ready to be spanked, after a monster hit from Nick Kruse. We are all patiently waiting for Mr. Do to put these memories into a second reality so we can live them all over again.

I’m sure you all have seen the full results by now, but just in case you have not, here is the tournament’s official Podium link. Twenty of these 48 teams will advance to the World Championship of Bike Polo in Florida. Here is the list of teams that will be representing North America come October:
