Hey everyone. There’s a ton of awesome stuff going down up here in Seattle. We’ve been riding tons of rad gear, playing a load of polo, and gearing up for tournament season.
Bench Minor went down in LA a couple weeks ago. Big thanks to the LA crew for putting on such an awesome event with such style and poise. Joe brought home the win from BM4. Global United played a great game, quick, precise, physical. GU was clearly headed for the podium. It was awesome to see so many players from all over the world play so well together, and of course to have Joe be on the winning squad is rad! Another 206 local, Scooter, was also on the winning squad. It’s so good to see our friends on the podium. Koyo destroyed LA as well, nabbing himself another MVP title. It was great to see everyone and get some sun and beach time.
With our qualifier just days away we’ve been getting in some team practice and dialing in our game. We’re super stoked to get back into tournament mode. Cascadia is one of the toughest regions to compete and qualify in. There are so many serious contenders, there are going to be a lot of teams vying for those top eight spots.
We’ve been getting in tons of time on new gear too. We’ve been breaking in our Giro shoes over the last couple months. So far they are going strong and holding up great. Look for a long term review of the Chamber coming soon. The Fixcraft cleat system has made it’s way into our hands and onto our mallets. What can I say about it that hasn’t been said already? This is by far the best non-propietary modular system. It is so simple and easy to use. Making a mallet takes minutes, cut the shaft, drill the head, thread it together. Done.
We’ve got something real nice coming up in the very near future from FBM Bike Co. We’ve collaborated on a really cool project that I think a lot of people are going to be stoked on. More on that next week…
Thanks for tuning into the blog, if you’ve got questions, answers, complaints, if you want to request more photos of Koyo’s flowing locks, or just want to whisper sweet things into Panizzo’s one good ear holler at us, doggie!
