UK Bike Polo Championships 2010

Last weekend UK´s bike polo community gathered in Chanchester, ehm, sorry, Manchester, to determine the best team in the country. What a great weekend! Sunshine, afternoon BBQ, music, great games, great people. More of a bike polo festival than a tournament.

Sunday´s top 8 games were stunning and exciting. Really high level polo. The 30 minutes final between Cosmic3 and Rotten Apples was amazing and breathtaking. See the unedited video of the game here. Finally, Cosmic3 got the trophy with a 4:3 win. Congratulations!

BAD Polo ranked 3rd and Josh from Polo Fiasco got MVP.
