British Rider aged 5 takes home a respectable 6th Place in the Strider Cup World Championships.

Posted on in Business News, Brands & Products News, Cycles News, Outdoor News

Last weekend (21st July, 2018) saw 300 pint-sized riders from 15 different countries descend on Boulder Colorado, USA for the 8th annual Strider Cup World Championship.

Cohan Jagielski, the 2018 British champion took his place on the start line and despite very tough competition from the well-trained Japanese fought his way onto the podium.

The Strider race scene features excited and proud parents and grandparents eagerly encouraging their young racers as bright yellow cowbells are rung and the starting gate drops. Toddlers from the age of 1 years, some still in nappies, lean forward, kick their short legs and embark upon their 600-foot plus journey over obstacles from dirt mounds to wooden ramps. Tight cornering and fast racing action over several motos produce the finalists and the quickest kids in the World.

All racers are treated to a celebratory podium award ceremony immediately following their main race, where they will receive either a trophy or a medal and pose for the crowd of proud parents, spectators and media pack.

As one parent put it, “My son loves his Strider Bike and this event has given him a great way to race, go fast, and feel like a big kid without having to navigate pedals. The atmosphere is incredible and the kids seem to make new friends from all over the world, hanging around at the start”

Strider UK run a series of races for Strider owners and participating in any of the UK Cup Races automatically qualifies the rider for the Strider Cup World Championship.

The 2019 Strider Cup Worlds will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina.
