World Hardcourt Bike Polo Champs: The Beavers

Photo Credit:  321polo.net

  Congratulations to our very own Beavers!  
  
  321polo couldn't have said it any better than this.  "What do you get when you mix bike polo, the teamwork of 1992 Dream Team, the shooting accuracy of an early 2000s Tiger Woods, and the synchronicity of migrating Canadian geese? You get Joey Halvorsen, Eric Kremin, and Brian Dillman in the manifestation known as The Beavers."-321polo.net

Elle Anderson's Specialized Crux

Elle Anderson has been ripping up the U.S. cross scene this fall, including two wins at the Trek Cup in Watertown, WI. She's been riding the new Specialized Crux.

Here's the cyclingnews.com review:
