In case you were out of the bike polo loop this past weekend, the first Asia Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship went down in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Sixteen teams from all over Asia competed in the two day tournament that saw Osaka, Japan’s YATTARUS as the winner (full results can be found HERE). We came across some beautiful photos from the event and we wanted to share this historic moment with you all. You can find the photos HERE!
If you’re not familiar with the name Timothy Mason, then you need to read up on your hardcourt bike polo history. Timothy Mason is one of the sports original six. Without him and his bike messenger friends, we would all be stuck with some other boring activity to take up our time. These days you can find him making awesome leather cycling gear. One such item is his leather bike polo mallet grip. I had the pleasure to try one out last month and they are dope! To give one a try for yourself, head over to the Heckler’s Alley webstore to pick one up.
Tonight at 9pm (or maybe not, be sure to check your local listings) you have the opportunity to watch the all-star Mike Rowe try his hand at hardcourt bike polo. This is going down on his CNN show called Somebody’s Gotta Do It. You can find the preview for the episode HERE!
This year the hardcourt bike polo Finnish nationals are taking play in the city of Oulu, thanks to the Oulu Bike Polo club. To get the country (and even the rest of the world) stoked for their tournament, the Oulu Bike Polo club put together some teaser promotional video. These are seriously two of the best promotional/teaser videos that I’ve ever seen for the sport. They perfectly sum up the obsession that is hardcourt bike polo. You can find the two videos here:
