My team and I were lucky enough to get set up with a sponsorship from Dockers for our participation in the 2010 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships in Berlin. We were set up with some new pants and they custom screened the winged anchor logo on some t-shirts for us. This was all despite our team name being Profane Lobotomy. It all worked out great! Thank you for your support.
According to Lefa at cyclingnsht.blogspot.com this photo was published in a book titled Idrotten i Finlad (1906) by Ivar Wilskman. Idrotten i Finlad translates to Sports in Finland. Kaisaniemi park is in Helsinki, Finland and H.V.K. stands for Helsingfors Velocipedklubb.
Looks to me like they are playing bike polo in the street, or at the very least not in the grass.
NYC Century Bike Tour
The country’s only all-urban 100-mile bike tour
September 12th, 2010
Central Park, NYC
I spotted this as I was working, it’s too bad it’s the day after Bike The Barns in Madison, WI because I think I’m gonna be in Madison again. But even if I was in NYC on the 12th, I doubt I’d wake up and be at 110th Street by the 5:30am start time.

We also had Gus from Boston and Nate’s dad visit us, as well as a couple new players to give bike polo a try.
