Thank You Soooo much for coming out to the 2017 Strider Cup World Championship!

Wow – what an amazing record/breaking day of international toddler Strider bike racing! Nearly 400 toddlers from 14 countries and 30 riders with special needs competed for the worlds fastest Strider bike rider in Saturday's races held at Gallivan Center in Salt Lake City. Little legs lined up behind the 24 foot start gate and strode over, through and around various obstacles along the 777 foot custom built race course. We all witnessed little Finn transfer up four times in the 3-year old category and we were blown away by the speed of the Japanese riders who in the end swept all the titles. Happy, smiling faces received medals and trophies as champions were crowned in 2 and under, 3, 4, 5 year old, and special needs divisions. What a wonderful day of making new friends, riding, Dannon Yogurt mustaches, and racing!
 
A huge thank you to all the racers, their families, and to our title sponsor Dannon and their staff from West Jordan Utah for the support, yogurt and for donating bikes to the Salt Lake Head Start. A big thanks also to Competitive Cyclist for the Free Strider Adventure Zone and to LDS Hospital, The Color Run, Chick-Fil-A and Real Shades. Thanks also to the Gallivan Center as well as the City of Salt Lake City for their support! We had a fantastic time this weekend and loved hearing the stories you shared about your child’s experience with their Strider bike. Thank you for the hospitality and hope to see you in 2018!
