Onward to Arkansas
Team 1 x 1 is road tripping this weekend to Little Rock, Arkansas for the South Central Bike Polo Championships. Dustin, Sven and Nick D were one of the lucky 9 teams from outside the region to get a spot. As you can see in this map, the South Central region is geographically very large. It encompasses a large chunk of states in the Southern middle of our country, as well as the entire country of Mexico.
36 teams from the US and Mexico will compete in this North American Hardcourt sanctioned event. The top 8 teams in this tournament win automatic entry into the 2011 North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships in Calgary, Alberta.
Minneapolis Polo hasn’t had the pleasure to play with a large percentage of these teams. And we certainly haven’t had the opportunity to play any teams from Mexico!
Wish us luck as we pile our all three* of our Surly 1x1s into the wagon and haul ass to a warmer and less salt encrusted locale.
