Kings of the Rink 2010
Bike Polo Tournament
September 10th – 12th, 2010
Grenoble, France

From what I understand this tournament will be one day of double elimination book-ended with a day of goldsprints and pick-up and a day of Bench Minor style polo. Very cool!

And I recommended you follow the link to their site. I found some very inspiring photos.

Movie poster vs. Bike polo flier

I watched this movie on DVD and thought I might have seen it before based on the cover. No, I had just seen a bike polo tournament flier that looks just like it. Objectified is about designers of things like chairs, Apple computers and pruning sheers. Most of the people who appear in the movie speak with English accents and I feel asleep before the end.

And now another, this one without editing or a sound track.

Goalies are still boring either way.

I’m gonna go straight to trash talk but first can anyone tell me the song from the first video?
Paris, are you going to bid for Worlds in 2010? If so let’s hear it soon. Looks like a good group of players but way too many goals scored on the goalie-type-people-on-bikes in the goal. You all are useless just sitting there between the cones. I’m not saying to get better at SITTING BETWEEN THE CONES. I’m saying get your ass out of goal and play the ball like a polo player should.
It’s great that Europe makes so much polished up polo media. You all make really good fliers, videos, logos, t-shirts and other polo related media and nic-nacs. But really, if you want to have a world-class hardcourt bike polo tournament on your continent it might be wise to practice PLAYING THE GAME a little more so when North American teams invade your home lands you might be able to put up a worthy fight. So my free and unsolicited advice would be to get better at hitting the moving ball while you’re doing some moving too. Meaning it’s a 3 on 3 game, act like it. Or you won’t be in the top 3. or the next 3.

Ok now for real. I can’t wait to play polo over seas and I’m looking forward to knowing what cities are looking into hosting 2010 worlds. Are there any European cities biding for worlds? I looked on .ca and some of the euro club sites and could not find much info.

Nike is all about bikes

At least in Europe. They have an eye on bike polo and it seems like they can afford some wood. Maybe someone should get them to sponsor a bike polo tournament.
