Strider Cup Returns to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca

Balance, coordination and confidence all develop naturally when children experience group play and friendly competition. The Strider Cup® can be just that venue for learning.

The Strider Cup returns to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Sunday July 29 during the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, part of the MotoGP World Championship July 27-29.

Strider Cup races allow toddlers ages two to five the opportunity to compete at events across the country. The $10 entry fee includes race entry, a Strider number plate, Strider t-shirt, Strider Cup medal for the top finishers in each age class (2, 3, 4 and 5 year olds)  and ribbons for all participants.  Pre-register at StriderSports.com and the first 50 registrants will receive two Sunday general admission tickets to the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix — a $110 value and the second 50 registrants will receive one Sunday general admission ticket.

“At Strider, we love to see the kids light up with excitement when they get that first taste of freedom, mobility and adventure that comes from their first bike experience,” says Ryan McFarland Strider Sports International CEO. “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.”

Before the Strider race, the whole family can enjoy the Strider experience at the Adventure Zone from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday up until 10:30 a.m. at which time the Adventure Zone become the Strider Cup race course.
