…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.
Turducken v 2.0
Bike Polo Feast
December 5th & 6th, 2009
More info: RVA Bike Polo
1st place: “Bearnie Mac & Cheese” Nick, Ian, & JT (RVA)
2nd place: “Silent Majarabroity” Ben, Alexis, & Chris (RVA/Ottawa/NYC)
3rd place: “Browaukee” Kremin, Joe, & Matt (MKE)
Finding some bike polo stuff floating around, like this great photo of Montana giving a talk about the rules on the second day of a two day tournament. Note the hay bales. Found among others on Bicycle Images.
Also something from New York Cool a short story with photos of games in The Pit from January 2009.
One more photoblogger’s take on The Pit: goodbyemelbournehellonewyork.com
Of course I need to look for new bike polo products. And I found a “Krass” rip off hoodie. I think by spelling it wrong they free themselves from any copyright BS that might make selling one color, one sided $40 hoodies a pain in the ass. I have to say I like what King Kog did much better.
And while I was looking for new stuff I didn’t forget to look at some old stuff too. The old C.H.U.N.K. 666 site ain’t what it used to be but the new one is still good for a laugh.
It needs to be said that chunk…
Are two completely different things.
Logo’s, shit so many logos…
That’s enough of that.
Last I found a photo title: Duke Plays Bicycle Polo
The Duke of Edinburgh taking part in a bicycle polo match at Windsor. This photo is dated 1967.
Madison Bike Polo made themselves a new logo. I like Jonny’s description.
Well, you have the Madison red in the mallets. It is a hammer and sickle to represent how Madison is maligned as a communist state and it has a rainbow because rainbows are fucking rad.

New York’s bike polo crew hasn’t done very much to create an image for it’s loosely united club. And by that I mean we don’t have stickers, t-shirts, patches, jackets and things like that. We do have a core group of truly top notch players that aren’t afraid to travel 15 to 20 players deep and win big tournament. We do have a website, New York Hardcourt. And we do have a logo, as seen below. This logo has only been used for the spokecards and t-shirt art for the ESPI 2 in NYC. The concept for the art was my own, and the design was done by Brad Baker of Trackstar.
As Montana and others make headway into the world of making hardcourt bike polo a real sport with it’s own governing body and stand alone World and Continental Bike Polo Championships. So will New York’s bike polo crew, in trying to create an image and an official name. It’s almost certain that the logo will be the Statue of Liberty art, or a variation of. And the name may end up being NYC Bike Polo or New York Hardcourt since these are the two URL’s for the clubs website. But the official name of the club is still up in the air, and suggestions are being considered(as far as I know). If you are a New York player and have any ideas for the club, now is the time.

More spoke cards
Today at work I had a minute to sit and I saw a New York Post on the counter so I flipped through it to kill some time between runs. I learned that The U.S.P.A. won in court today against RL Polo in a debate over logos. This battle on the legal court has been going on since at least 2001 . The Associated Press also did a story on the matter.
I don’t know all the details but I like that those who play the sport won.
