Hello all you STRIDER riders and fans. Hope you're having a pleasant Saturday. As I was looking for a Travis Pastrana video to post for the STRIDERday entry this retro reminder of dare-devil Evel Knievel caught my eye.
In a lot of ways Travis is following in his tire tracks. They've both jumped a lot of things and have both broken a lot of bones.
Check out the video and have a great day with your little STRIDER

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!
