monster track 2007 polo

The next day polo took place in Greenpoint, Brooklyn along with the side events.

That was last year. This year Monster Track (main race) has been cancelled. The side events will still take place but who knows what that means. Polo and the velodrome racing are at the same time but miles apart. And is this famous race a thing of the past…

Only time will tell.
