Riders race in yearly age groups from two to six years of age down a 200-meter long track custom built in the outdoor car park at Resorts World, racing four at a time, firing out of the BMX style start gate with twists, turns, small bumps and obstacles to negotiate.

 

The boy to beat will be 6 year old Cohen from Cannock, who raced the World Championships earlier this month in North Carolina, USA. Cohen set a blistering pace in the finals, showing a clean set of heels to the rest of the international field to be crowned World Champion.

 

 “If you want your children to put down those electronic devices and get off the sofa, enjoy some fresh air and the great outdoors, then look no further. Seeing these young children blast around on the balance bikes with huge smiles on their faces is priceless”, says Balance Bike Cup organiser Si Paton.

 

Racing starts at 11:00 with over 100 riders already pre-booked in the event is almost a sell-out. Spectating is free as is parking for all competitor’s parents/guardians.

 

All those with a participant wristband will be eligible to claim a free VIP card for the day, entitling them to these discounts inside Resorts World afterwards. These can be collected at Resorts World’s Guest Services by showing a participant wristband.
