Yesterday we said that 2016 has been the bee knees in terms of great bike polo tournament footage, and then BOOM we get one of the best hardcourt bike polo tournament videos that we’ve ever seen. It’s unique, well edited, and really shows the importance of not only Ladies Army, but bike polo family as a whole. Watch, enjoy, and share!
2016 has given us some killer tournament highlight videos, and as the season winds down, we are happy to add one more to the list! In September Columbus Bike Polo hosted the sixth installment of their Equinox tournament, and yesterday they put up this really dope video. Enjoy!
There have been murmurs of Milwaukee Bicycle Co. making a hardcourt bike polo disc fork for a couple years now. It was one of those that we assumed just fell to the wayside for some cool cyclocross or gravel fork (you know actual popular cycling things), but then last week Ben’s Cycle put the Milwaukee Bruiser Polo Fork/Guard up for sale on their website.
Not only are they now selling a hardcourt bike polo fork, but it comes with a rotor guard, AND is only $120. My mind is nearly blown away by how great that deal is!
So if you have a 700c polo bike and are looking for new disc brake fork, then head to Ben’s Cycle now to PICK ONE UP. Hurry up though, because as I write this on Sunday night, or I guess technically Monday morning at 12:24 am, there are only 7 left!
Push Push Press out of Lexington, Kentucky is offering some killer jersey deals for all of those slayers heading to the North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship later this month. To take advantage of these great deals, email Birdie Watts at Birdie@pushpushpress.com by next Monday, September 12th. Don’t sleep on this offer!
I first met Andrea at North Americans in Minneapolis – and by met, I mean I waddled (I was in full Crusher girth, at the time) out to her after an in-play accident that broke her ankle. It wasn’t much of a first meeting, as I more or less took orders from Jacques on what needed to happen. The next day, however, I followed up with her and found she was, more or less, just inconvenienced by the broken ankle, taking in the sun and watching games while relaxing court side.
This year, Andrea won the Great Plains Regional Qualifier, making her one of the first women/trans/femme (WTF) players to achieve first place in any regional qualifier in North America. I requested the following interview, which Andrea was kind enough to agree to.
