Liam Gilson of Minneapolis loves shooting film photos of bike polo in action. Check out his work from this years tournament!
Thank You All For Visiting Minneapolis!
Now that the concrete has been power washed, the boards are back at the warehouse, and the Oval’s skateboarders have returned, we have a moment to reflect on the past weekend. And what a weekend! Below is our thanks, not in order by any means.
Gary Crandall – I finally understand the etymology of the ‘Crandall Award’. Thank you sir for all you have done for us and over the years!
Mr Do and his great live stream
Vince and his wonderful podium!
To all the players! You have showed some major skill improvements, keep it up!
Last but not lease, MPLS BIKE POLO for pulling together again and making this happen.
And thank you all!
To us behind the scenes, this is what the weekend looked like to us.
