Strider cup 2019 in Niseko
With the Niseko classic cycling race now well behind us Niseko was treated to the true sporting highlight of our 2019 summer. The Niseko strider cup or perhaps as it’s coming to be known the Strider international.
Whilst training our 4 year old consisted of mainly toilet training, teaching him not to get his tongue stuck in the electric window and wearing pants in public places it’s clear that some parents are well ahead of the curve, busy sculpting the minds and bodies of their finely honed racing toddlers.
Some of these kids are quick. Real quick and it looks like the training throughout the winter with special Strider snow tires made a difference in those crucial few seconds that separates winners and losers.
Others are just getting started in their competitive careers choosing to do the circuit in reverse but either way a great day was by all and it was an honor to be part of a true community event like this to just get out there and have some old fashioned fun.
Nothing brings the world closer like hurling kids on bikes without brakes down a ski slope in matching active wear. Niseko delivered again with a great injury free day on the slopes for all with plenty of Japanese food tents and some added dancing and entertainment for the kids.
In the end of there can only be one winner and the 5-6 year old category proved just how good some of these kids are, whizzing by the traffic cones with millimeters to spare as they judged each corners entry and exit like a formula one driver.
Even you have not experienced a Strider cup add it to your 2020 events dairy. You will not be disappointed.
