Strider World Cup to Laguna MotoGP

2011 MotoGP

Strider Sports International, the world’s premier no-pedal balance bike manufacturer, is bringing a Strider World Cup event to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on July 24th. Budding young cyclists will ride alongside their heroes during the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, part of the MotoGP World Championship.

The season-long Strider World Cup series gives toddlers ages two to five the chance for friendly competition at events across the country. You can join in the fun by pre-registering your toddler before July 19th at the web store.

For the $25 entry fee, each racer receives a race entry, a Strider Handlebar Bag with numberplate, a Strider t-shirt, a Strider Cup medal (for all) or trophy (first three places in each age class), and a Strider cowbell for Mom or Dad to ring during the race!

The first 50 registrants will receive two Sunday general admission tickets to the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix – a $100 value! Before the big Sunday Strider race, the whole family can enjoy the Strider experience at the Adventure Zone from 8am to 5pm Friday and Saturday.

Have your toddler test ride their favorite Strider while playing, learning, and socializing with peers on two wheels!

By participating at the Mazda Raceway event, riders will be eligible for the Strider World Championship in Sarasota, Florida on September 17th.

Ryan McFarland (

Strider Sports International CEO) says: "At Strider, we love seeing really little kids light up with excitement when they get that first taste of freedom, mobility, and adventure that comes from their first bike experience. We’re thrilled to have the Mazda Raceway promoting Strider Cup Racing and the Strider Adventure Zone program as we believe it will further fuel that budding passion for riding on two wheels and inspire other kids to get outside, get on a bike, and give it try."

Gill Campbell (CEO and General Manager of Mazda Raceway) says: "We couldn’t think of a better partner than Strider Sports to help reach out to our youngest fans. Bringing the Strider World CupTM and Strider Adventure Zone to the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix creates an event with something for the entire family."
