Wrote a little piece about the NYC Bench Minor (vs. RVA) back in July for Urban Velo. My article is gracefully complimented by the gorgeous photography of Doug D.

“Body up on him! Body up on him!” The excited cry echoes from the sidelines at The Pit, New York’s informally designated bike polo court. On the concrete court, six players weave and sweep across the large open courtyard vying for possession of the ball. As Ace contends with an opponent and the two all but tangle, his teammates on the bench urge him to muscle the man in the way, well, out of the way.
