We’re going into new territory with the next show, with bike polo and skateboarding. A lot of newer sports have been invented in the last few decades. One of them is bike polo, which is played by lots of teams every week in Anchorage. It’s what it sounds like–riding a bike while hitting a ball with a stick, like hockey on a bike. Another relatively new sport is boarding, on both wheels and snow. It’s both counterculture and mainstream these days, and we’ll hear an interview with a former X-Games champion from Alaska who eventually came back and opened a board shop here to pass on the sport to another generation.
HOST: Charles Wohlforth
- Spencer Mitchell, bike polo player and bicycle salesman at The Bicycle Shop, Dimond.
- Jason Borgstede, former X-Game gold medalist and owner of Blue and Gold Board Shop
