Call Me Daddy’s William Jr on Riding In Circle

Like the brave Victorian souls at the forefront of mountaineering, bike polo players are looking beyond available resources to design the equipment they need at the top level of competition. Whether it be helmets, frames, wheels, or gloves, we have made-do since the beginning. We’re predicting this year will be a sea change.

Pick your angles

Cosmic pass

A brilliant article on this years London Open has been published at greenworm.net.

They describe the sport from a newcomer’s perspective with a refreshing amount of insight, and they manage to avoid all the classic clichés.

The key to the game is not in speed, but in skills and control. It’s not a big court so being able to pick your angles, maintain uprightedness, and perform deft slice shots and smacking power drives while leant over and feathering the brakes off-handed is going to help you more than the acceleration of a demon. You can be hyper aggressive, but the targets themselves reward accuracy over strength.

Do head over to their site to read the whole thing, it’s worth it, they have a little photo gallery of the event as well.  More articles like this please!
