Australasian Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships
May 7th – 8th, 2011
Adelaide, Australia

I like that in Australia they have it together enough to just make a yearly distinction versus doing the first, second, ect. for their Championships. That’s pro.

N is for North American

This news piece out of Wisconsin does a good job with the 2 min. they give the event. I like Rory and his presence is good. The game play clips are good too, maybe focusing on the “oooh danger” aspect of the sport but what else is someone who does not play gonna focus on?

For bike polo players, the North American Hardcourt Championships are
the zenith of the sport in the U.S. The national championships were
held in Madison last weekend. WISC-TV photojournalist Brian Mesmer
gives a look into the world of bike polo.

Well for starters I’d ask that they, as journalist, focus on the name of the event. Nowhere I found in any of the official info released about this event used the word “national”. Because this was open to all of North America. Despite that, whoever posts WISC-TV YouTube videos still used “National” in the video title, in the video description and in the video tags.

They almost get it right in the description, but the anchor identifies is correctly and of course Eric from Trek gets it right. I guess the person who posts to YouTube just didn’t get the memo.

NAHBPC registation extended and COFFEE!!

The organizers of the 2010 North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships have extended the registration deadline to today, Sunday, High Noon. I’m guessing that’s Central time.

And you can pre-order a $10 bag of %100 fair trade coffee beans from Just Coffee. I think it’s a special blend but even if it’s not you should still support those that support bike polo.
