    we had to play that in police bike school...you have to pick the ball up with your hands w/out your feet touching the ground....friggin hard. then you can only hold the ball for 3 secs. it's like polo and rugby mixed but with pointy bicycles involved.

    They were making fun of that on the ESPN classic show "Cheap Seats". It was a match from like the 1940's or 50's. I was surprised to see people doing something remotely like trials back then.

    Ever since I saw this video, I've been getting parts together for an "indoor cycling" / "artistic cycling" / "bicycle ballet" / "cycleball" / polo bike. It should be done by the end of the week!

    hysterically ghey for sure, but it also looked hard as hell, riding mostly backwards on one wheel on a fixed gear with your arms out for over 5 minutes. it'd be interesting to see if chase, lenosky, and leech could even do it.
