What is Bike Polo?

It was recently asked by the one and only Captain Bob after the last post on a lesson on marketing - 'what is bike polo? is it a poly blended bike jersey with three buttons and a collar?'

And the answer is... if only. Actually poly blend might be a great way to explain bike polo: one part traditional polo, one part street hockey/lacrosse, add a little mountain bike/bmx bike control, a sprinkle of punk and heckling and you start to get a sport that looks and feels a lot like bike polo.

But in all seriousness since repeatedly watching the video below, which is from a tournament down in Lafayette a few months back, I think it sums up bike polo in a way very few polo videos have. Plus... there's some of the GR Polo/Velocity crew in it and you can't beat that!
