A nation always at the forefront of the mountain biking practice, France was a bit late in terms of practice structuring for the youngest from the age of 2 in Balance Bikes or Push Bikes. But within a few months, this delay has been caught up with the structuring of the first challenge devoted to this practice in France, the Kids Rider Bike Challenge. Last year, more than 150 kids participated in 5 indoor or outdoor games on natural terrain or prepared track in the city.From 2 to 5 years old, girls and boys give their all and enjoy.
Its organizer, Joe Cippiciani, from Kids Rider Bike, speeds things up again for this second season with more categories and a very symbolic opening on February 26th in indoor in the south of France near Avignon, in Sauveterre, in the presence of the prestigious honorary patron, Anne Caroline Chausson. Symbolic for three main reasons, the first one being that it was from there that the challenge had really taken off in number of participants and then was full on the other games, the second one being that it is organized in a precursor of the new trends, Ventoux Sport having been the first association in France to create an enduro mountain bike circuit and the 3rd one being that it will happen a few kms away from the offices of Pure Agency, the company that manages the Specialized Gravity team and which follows and actively supports The Kids Rider Bike Challenge.Laurent Delorme had left his shirt of the Specialized Gravity to encourage his children.
The opportunity to meet the boss of one of the most successful teams in the world, Laurent Delorme, to learn more about his interest in push bikes and organizations of the Kids Rider Bike Challenge.All the children are rewarded, here by the patron of the 4th session, Bryan Regnier.
This is especially to accompany a great adventure launched last year by Joe from Kids Rider Bike and Lionel Beccari. This "push bike" gathering concept is really the starting point, the front door, to access the field of the bikes. The event is so well done that children get caught up in the game, riding with their buddies of the day, and challenge themselves. The level goes up, and without realizing it, they become small budding champions, having a ball on the bicycle. This pleasure dimension is the basis for future success. The podium, a sacred pride for these children.
With well-divided age groups, the very secured track, the management, and above all the good spirit dictated by the pocket riders, all children, beginners or not, loving the sport or not, getting caught in the game and riding on the track. After all, no matter what the result is, everybody wins: there are medals, music, sweets, mates ... In short, it's more a party than a race.Joe Cippiciani, Kids Rider Bike boss, is the initiator and organizer of this circuit in France with Lionel Beccari, speaker of FISE, Crankworx, Roc d'Azur.Kids Rider Bike Challenge 2017
