Japanese STRIDER Commercial...Take Two!

Last month we posted this great animated commercial on our Facebook page.  It is being aired on the Japanese Cartoon Network and is a lot of fun to watch.

They are at it again! This time they've replaced the cartoons for highlights from their STRIDER Cup season and some very fun trick riding. This one is great because it shows riders all the way from beginners to some of their most advanced riders.

We can't wait to watch these great tricks and fast Strider Cup racers again at the 2012 STRIDER World Championship in Sarasota, FL!

Strider at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca!

The Strider World Cup racing action at the Mazda raceway Laguna Seca was amazing!

We had 30 racers show up for the big event with many others stopping by just to do some Strider test rides. We even had six of our test riders from Saturday decide to race in the Strider World Cup on Sunday after only having ridden a Strider for a couple hours!

One couple drove for 5 hours to bring their Son (Jacob) ride in the Strider World Cup. "He placed last, but we had a blast!" ~Mom

The crowd was very enthusiastic as well.  We had to discourage some who were contemplating placing bets on the racers.  Another fan told us that "The Strider World Cup was the best race that he'd seen all week-end"

We have to agree with all the sentiments.  Thank You to all who came out, tested, raced, retweeted, etc during the Red Bull US Grand Prix!

See You Next Year!

StriderDay: US Moto GP!

If you haven't already heard we're adding a Strider Cup race at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca the 24th of July! Sundays at the Mazda Raceway are the most heavily attended race days. Last year over 60,000 people were there to cheer on their favorite Moto GP racers! This could be the chance of a lifetime for your little Strider rider!

With that in mind we've found a highlight from 2010 practice rides! Which reminds us...The Strider adventure zone will be set up at the Raceway on Friday and Saturday if your toddler wants to get in some practice laps!

Enjoy the video, then head over to register to get your Strider rider in on some of the racing action at Laguna Seca...maybe they'll be the next great Moto GP champion!

Calling all Strider riders! If you are in or near Fresno, California or Warsaw, Indiana make sure that you get out for some Strider Cup racing action this weekend (6/25 and 6/26)!

There have been hundreds of Strider riders participate in the Strider Cup this year. As the year progresses and the Strider Cup competition heats up we hope to see see that number double in the second half!

[caption id="attachment_1972" align="aligncenter" width="576" caption="Ready, Set, RACE!"][/caption]

Fresno, CA - The "All American Nationals" will be happening on the 25th and 26th (this weekend) of June in Fresno, California.  It will be the largest NBL National races in California this year and should be a great opportunity to hone their Strider racing skills as well as getting inspired by the older guys as they rip up the BMX track!

Warsaw, IN - The "Midwest Nationals" are coming to Warsaw...Indiana the 25th and 26th of June.  The BMX and Strider Cup racing action at Hire Park BMX should be epic if the highlights from last years nationals are any indication.

The weather report for both race cities is sunny and warm for the entire weekend!  Get your Strider riders pumped up and get them out for some BMX fun.

Striding Around Tokyo

Strider Cup is the brain child of our Japanese distributors and Striders have really taken off in Japan as a result.  Every day we get videos and YouTube links sent with huge crowds of children riding their Striders.  When we stumbled on the YouTube video below we couldn't help but smile at the change of pace.

The two year old is taking a leisurely Stride through the city streets.  The music is infectious, He's got a great smile and after only two months on his green Strider he is getting more adventurous!

Inspiring Little Biker

This last weekend there were 3 Strider Cup races in the U.S.A.  We're working feverishly to get up photos, race results and interact with parents about their experiences.  If you have any photos, video or stories to share check us out on our Strider Facebook or StriderCup Facebook wall!  In the meantime here is an inspirational video from YouTube.  This little guy is going to make a great head coach some day!

If he would have learned on a Strider the cuteness factor of this speech would have been multiplicatively greater!

Go check out our Facebook wall and share some inspiration in the form of photos, video or Strider success stories from your Strider riders!
