We don't have all the specifics yet, but the photos and video from Strider Cup Japan are just too good not to share right away. The event was held in niigata and was a huge success! The kids were all very excited to race and the huge crowd had a lot of fun cheering them on.
One interesting thing about the Japanese riders is the amount of customization they do to their Striders. The video has some footage riding around town, practicing at a local dirt park and then goes into the big Strider Cup race!
Strider feels privileged to be a small reprieve from the hard times occurring in Japan recently. It is nice to see kids being kids and their family and friends cheering them on.
