Strider Sports International CEO Ryan McFarland says, “At Strider, we love seeing really little kids light up with excitement when they get that first taste of freedom, mobility, and adventure that comes from their first bike experience. The USA BMX races are the perfect venue to showcase the Strider World Cup and the Strider Adventure Zone program. We’ve already seen the program spark a passion for riding on two wheels in many children across the country.”
