Strider Sports International, a no-pedal balance bike manufacturer, is bringing its Strider World Cup event to the final stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge (USAPCC) on Sunday, August 28th in Denver, Colorado.

As part of the USAPCC Finish Line Festival, the Strider World Cup event showcases head-to-head Strider racing between children ages two to five. Every Strider racer will receive a Team Strider t-shirt, a Strider handlebar bag/number plate and a souvenir Strider cowbell for Mom or Dad to ring during the race. Every racer will also earn a medal for participation in the race and the top three finishers in each age group will be awarded trophies at a podium ceremony.

Pre-registration is required. Race entry fee is $25. Limited to 200 racers. Click here to register.

The season-long Strider World Cup series gives toddlers the chance for friendly competition at events across the country. By participating at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge Strider Cup event, riders will be eligible for the Strider World Championship in Sarasota, Florida this October where they can compete with children from Japan and Europe.

The USA Pro Cycling Challenge is expected to be the largest spectator event in Colorado history and one of the largest sporting events to ever take place in the United States. For seven consecutive days, 128 of the world's top athletes will race over 500 miles through the Rocky Mountains.

Strider Sports International CEO, Ryan McFarland says, "The USA Pro Cycling Challenge is a natural fit to help promote Strider Cup Racing and the Strider Adventure Zone program as we believe it will further fuel that budding passion for riding on two wheels and inspire kids to get outside, get on a bike, and give it try."

In addition to the Sunday finish line festival, Strider Adventure Zones (free demo ride and play areas) will be available to the public at the finish of each of the six stage races beginning Monday, August 22, in Colorado Springs, Tuesday in Crested Butte, Wednesday in Aspen, Thursday in Vail, Friday in Steamboat Springs, Saturday in Breckenridge and Sunday in Denver.
