Steven Sal Debus, the genius behind Modifide Bike Polo Equipment and one of the sparks behind RYB Denim, recently uprooted himself from Toronto and found new soil in Vancouver, B.C. With the success of RYB Denim, Steven was hit up by a clothing designer with over 25 years of experience to help produce the best performance jean on the market. The result is DU/ER Performance Denim. To help get these new jeans onto the market, Steven and his partner Gary set up a Kickstarter page to help make the most technically advanced jean a reality. You can find the Kickstarter page HERE! Here is the video that the two put out to accompany the DU/ER Performance Denim jeans.
Check out this great footage from the 2014 Barcelona Open. It was held the weekend after the 2014 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship, so you will see some of the world’s best hardcourt bike polo players featured. Enjoy!
The Australasian Hardcourt Bike Polo Association is formally submitting a bid to host the World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships in 2015 in Timaru, NZ. This is a joint submission from the entire region of New Zealand and Australia to host the event. Approval of this bid a full year in advance allows for proper planning and would allow participants access to cheaper airfares.
The North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Association (or simply, NAH) is offering a pretty hefty payment for those that are willing to help referee the first ever NAH Bench Championship. Okay, ‘hefty’ may not be the right term when compared to referees in professional sports (or even little league) but for bike polo this is a pretty big deal! NAH will be paying both head refs and secondary refs. Head refs will be paid $10 per game and secondary refs $5 per game. With game times running around a hour per game, head refs will be making roughly $10 an hour! That’s higher than minimum wage in a lot of the United States!
To sign up as a ref for this history tournament, contact the NAH Head of Reffing (Joe Rstom) as Joe@Hardcourt.com. I hope to see you all in Lexington in a few weeks!
Some how this new version of the Milwaukee Bicycle Co. slipped under my radar. It now comes with 10mm wrench slots that allow for easier removal (which was the biggest difficulty of the old model) and is made of 7075 aluminum. On top of this, Milwaukee is offering titanium bolts so one will be all you need! Find more info HERE!
