The NAH just released a post reviewing the changes players can expect in the 2015 season, NAHBPC, and beyond. I have the good fortune of somehow being respected in the NAH, and managed to sneak a peek at the post and pose a few questions to John Hayes, NAH Tourney poobah and all around swell guy. I asked three questions in particular (and please, dear reader, forgive him for his funny English spelling):

Flat Pedals: The Future of Bike Polo

Story filed by Crusher

Oh yes, my time has come.

For my four-or-so years of playing bike polo, I’ve only ever gone clipless once. It was a month long period, and by the end of it I did some amazing damage to my knees and hips (as I panicked when trying to clip out whilst falling, and failed). I’m fully aware that I went about learning the entirely wrong way, but a mix of laziness and comfort keeps me on those ol’ flat pedals.

But now, my friends, my time has come. While those JNCO jeans I’ve been holding onto still haven’t come back in vogue, the flat pedal just might be making a comeback, as evidenced by a new tournament being organized by Greg (formally) of Call Me Daddy. Greg was kind enough to answer a few questions I had regarding the tourney in general:

What’s different about this tournament than other tourneys in the past?

This tournament is a bit different as all the players will have to play with flat pedals (no strap or cages allowed). In a way, it will be a bit experimental as nobody is playing with flat pedals anymore. I guess many players will lose their marks, but this is not the idea, the idea is to try to play a competitive tournament with flat pedals to see how this can change the game. Changing not only for the players but also for the public.

But you know the French scene is very competitive so I guess after a couple of minutes to get used to flat pedals, everybody will have in mind to score goals and win the game as in any other tournament. Continue Reading…
