Toddlers Race Strider® Bikes in Minneapolis
Children continue Strider Cup race series at The Commons in Downtown Minneapolis
BOULDER, CO (June 15, 2019) – The Commons park was full of toddlers 2 to 6 years old as racing Strider Bikes in the July 6 Minneapolis Strider Cup. U.S. Bank Stadium served as the backdrop as over 160 racers from around the world competed for the top trophy on Strider Balance Bikes. The July 6, 2019 Minneapolis Strider Cup is the third of four U.S. races for the 2019 season and is supported by sponsor MedExpress Urgent Care, a neighborhood medical center. Race results and images from the event will be posted later this week at striderbikes.com/events-minneapolis/.
Toddlers tested their skills, dashing through the hanging pool noodles of the “Noodle Monster” and launching over “Mount Scary,” two ramps positioned back-to-back with smoke rising from a “lava-filled” crack in the center. The little racers whizzed though the course with a mix of determined stares and elated smiles. They were cheered on by friends, family members, and inquisitive pedestrians — all of whom were full of smiles watching the youngsters race.
Next, the 2019 Strider Cup Series will take a trip north of the border, hosting a Strider Cup in Surrey, British Columbia on August 17. The 2019 toddler bike racing season culminates at the Strider Cup World Championship in Charlotte, NC on October 5 and 6, 2019.
