Like, No Hard Feelings, Eh?

We had some pretty stiff competition in the Chrome McKenzie Brother's competition, mainly in the form of the 2011 World Hardcore Bike Polo Champions, The Crazy Canucks!

They are made out of 3 amazing players from EastVan. They are also really nice men in general, I have shared a cider with them and cheered them on on the sidelines in VanCity. So, no hard feelings guys, it was 3 against 7, and in general the men in the bike world tend to be a little, you know, objective of women, so we used it to our advantage this time and showed a bit of leg. It's not exactly really PC, but neither is boys showing up at the Women's Army last year with "coach" on their shirts. Oh, the sexual politics of bikes and polo...

Kenny from Northern Standard put together this great video to celebrate their victorious season!

The Crazy Canucks entered the contest to raise funds to go to the WHBPC next this year in Europe. I highly recommend to ANY company out there to sponsor them to help them get there. Great guys, lots of visibility, real passion for the sport. Hattrick!!!
