…Currently RVA Bike Polo is ranked 5th in the world. Yes, that’s correct. The World. They are well renowned for their comraderie, positive attitude and high spirits. Most importantly though they entertain. These guys don’t mess around when it comes to making up tricks and looking good doing it…
And while I’m at it, here is an event RVA has planned.

2 on 2 is so much fun and a lot of work. Non stop polo for sure. The North End Knockout was really good. How far is RVA from NYC anyway.

2nd place: Mark & Montana (Philly)

Also there was a radar gun to record a fastest shot competition. Mark Capriotti unofficially hit a 73 MPH shot from a stationary ball. And netted goals were used instead of traffic cones.
Just had to repost this Richmond, VA Bike Polo logo I spotted on Flickr. When is RVA gonna call an east coast tournament? I guess they have a few months to decide, 2008 is kind of full but I really hope to go to RVA sometime next year. Maybe even for a friendlies style game day, but with a logo like this who’s gonna believe it’s anything less than a jump in the fire.
