To help you get through a long and boring hump day, here is a great video from Mr. Do of Control from San Francisco taking on Break Up from the UK at the 2014 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship in Montpelier, France. Enjoy!
I know this isn’t directed related to bike polo, but I know there are some kick-ass bike polo ladies out there who would love to take advantage of this opportunity.
Over the past couple of days, Fixcraft has been dropping previews of their new bike polo specific frame. While these are still months out from actual production, you will see some of your favorite Team Fixcraft slayers hitting the courts with these soon. I know I can’t wait to get my butt on one!
I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a pair of Quoc Pham‘s bike polo specific shoes, called the Hardcourt, ever since Urban Velo reported on them from Eurobike 2013. A few months ago I found myself on the Quoc Pham website hoping to see if the shoes ever came to fruition. I was disappointed to find out that they were nowhere to be found, and came to the conclusion that the Eurobike preview was as far as the shoes made it. And then, in a lazy day off earlier this week, I found myself browsing the Mission Workshop website, and BOOM! The Hardcourt is there and for sale!
For only $199, these beautifully designed shoes can give you extra style points while on the court. Use this link HERE to pick up a pair for yourself. Hopefully these are as functional as they are fashionable, because I’d love to get these on my feet!
If you’re from North American, then you probably recognize a couple of faces from the championship team (RompeBolas) at the 1st Latin American Bike Polo Championship held last weekend in Bogota, Colombia. Diego of Mucho Take It Easy fame and Pelon (formally of Los Cuatreros) joined forces with Memo from Mexico City to win the tournament. They did so by coming back from the losers bracket to beat Underdogs (Suju, Garga, and Wagner of Sao Paulo, Brazil) twice in both final games.
