When you purchase a Strider, you aren’t just buying a new bike for your kiddo. Instead, you’re joining a global community of people who share the same passion for riding on two wheels. The Strider Bikes community stretches far and wide. One of the coolest aspects of the community is that toddlers from all over the world can come together and compete in official Strider sanctioned events. Not only are these events fun and incredibly cute, but they also give kids the chance to showcase their sa-weet riding skills and help build confidence that lays the foundation of good sportsmanship.
Although Strider hosts many different types of events, the Strider Cup World Championship is the granddaddy of ‘em all. This race caters directly to children 2-6 years old who want to compete against riders from all over the world and experience the thrill of racing in spirited, supportive atmosphere.
This year, the World Championship is being held in Osaka, Japan on May 27th and 28th. This is the first-time that this event is being hosted outside the United States. Roughly 800 riders from 12 countries are expected to compete in this highly anticipated event. In fact, in April, parents had to enter a lottery in the hopes that their little ripper would be randomly selected to race.
Six American riders received sponsorships to be on Team USA! The following little shredders will be traveling with their families to Japan this month to represent the red, white, and blue in the championships: Sonny Alvarez, Tanner Davis, Jax Linden, Sylas McCain, Hikaru Mitogawa, and Gianpaolo D’Acquisto Estrada. All have previous racing experience are ready to bring the heat and put their skills to the test.
The 2023 Strider Cup World Championship is setting up to be one for the books. This will be a great chance for kiddos from all over the globe to make new friends, ride together, and most importantly, have a blast!
