UPDATE: We just added the second half of the tournament!
If you ever wondered what modern hardcourt bike polo would look like if everyone went back to playing on flat pedals, then we have video just for you. As I’m sure most of you know, a couple weeks ago Lyon Bike Polo hosted the first Flat Is Rad bike polo tournament.

They have a goal is selling 100 shirts, but let’s help them blow that goal out of the water. Everyone order one! Find more info on how to order HERE!
