Forget horses -- the guys at AZ Bike Polo invited teams of pedal pushers to the Grace Community Church parking lot in Tempe on Saturday and Sunday for a two-wheeled showdown.

We checked out a few matches and took a few notes. Per usual, the Good's above, the Bad and the Ugly are after the jump and the whole slideshow is right here.
