We know Strider will only enhance the family atmosphere at BMX races and tracks as it provides a way for even the youngest riders to get involved in the racing lifestyle.”
Erma adds, “I’m truly honored to become a part of the Strider family. With my grandson, I’ve seen firsthand the excitement and joy a Strider bike and Strider World Cup Racing can bring to a child. Witnessing parents light up with pride when their youngsters race is what I love most about the program. I look forward to bringing that experience to other children and parents at tracks and races around the country!”
