Cosmic

The raddest thing in bike polo.

Old Skool Todd

Found this photo over on Dead Rapper Polo of Todd, pre-cosmic and pre-mighty beard, as well as playing fixed brakeless on the infamous red Raleigh Team conversion – there’s certainly some history shown here.

But I love the photo for the flow it captures in Todd’s movement on the bike. You can almost feel the motion as he skid whips at speed. It’s a look and style which has pretty much disappeared in bike polo now most players are freewheel and dual brake. And as much as the game has progressed for the better as a result, it does feel like a golden period in bike polo disappeared all too fast.
