Get ready Arkansas, because Strider Cup Racing is about to take over the Square in downtown Bentonville on June 18th! These tiny riders will be racing their hearts out and shredding some serious rubber as they put their Strider skills to the test!
Plus, there will be a special appearance happening in the Square at 5:00 pm when World Champion Kenny Belaey and legend Hans “No Way” Rey show off their mad bike skills with an exclusive Trials Demonstration.
Strider Cup races are the highest level national Strider sanctioned races that give small children a chance to put their Strider Balance Bike skills to the test at several stops across the USA and worldwide. These unique Strider organized and operated events cater directly to children 2-4 year old’s who want to experience the thrill of racing. Children of all sizes and skill levels are welcome to participate. Strider No-Pedal Balance Bikes are developed for both learning the ropes of riding and honing advanced skills in racing.
Online pre-registration is required for the 2, 3, and 4-year-old classes, and online registration ends at 8pm on June 17th. There will be no registrations after that time or on race day.
Only one racer is allowed to register per form. To register multiple racers repeat the registration process for each racer.
REGISTRATION PACKET PICKUP: (FRIDAY) Please plan on attending packet pickup on Friday evening and bring your Strider Bike with you. This will allow us to perform a bike inspection (this is required before racing), attach the racer number plate, review the Race Day Schedule, and answer any questions you may have. This will ensure that your rider is ready for race day.
