14 Bike Co. meets equestrian polo-- in Nigeria!

Nigeria Grass Polo Trip from Jon Marshall on Vimeo.

Holy shit how has no one mentioned this yet!?! 14 Bike Co. out of London sent a group of poloeurs down to Nigeria to deliver some polo bikes to an equestrian polo facility (which will apparently use them for grass polo). There's a short write-up here at the English team Spring Break's website.

Good lookin' uniforms too! And at 6:49 you can see the motorcade for that Nigeria prince that's always emailing people...

I like this video a little better than the first (cause they're actually polo in it) though the choice of music just doesn't fit. I love sufjan, but how about a little more local flavor? I'm sure they have music in Nigeria...

Fucking awesome concept by 14 Bike Co. I'd love to be paid to fly to another country and pimp polo but i think that day is quite a ways off.
