This STRIDER Adventure Zone will be open on Saturday for the Daytona Supercross by Honda, as well as both days of the amateur supercross. The Adventure Zone gives kids 18 months to five-years-old a chance to test ride a STRIDER™, play with other kids, and develop balance and coordination in a STRIDER-designed area. This safe and friendly environment encourages kids to explore mobility on two wheels and experience the challenge and thrill of riding a STRIDER on unique terrains and obstacles.
Strider Sports International CEO Ryan McFarland says, “At Strider, we love seeing little kids light up with excitement when they get the first taste of riding. Getting the next Ricky Carmichael on a bike earlier than ever is what we strive to do at Strider, so bringing the Strider Adventure Zone to the Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross couldn’t be a better fit.”
The RCSX gives amateur racers the unprecedented opportunity to compete on one of the most prestigious motorsports grounds in the world for two days of racing. For riders, family, friends, and fans, there isn’t another event anywhere in the world that presents such a potent package, making this an instant can’t-miss event on the amateur motocross schedule.
