Riders Ready, let's go racing!! Children aged from 2 to 5 years of age are invited from all around the world to race in this fun and competitive competition. Race categories are split between both boys and girls in their age category. There are three days of racing with Quad Eliminator, Slalom and Downhill. Enter every race to be in with the chance to be a World Champion!

This young rider is clearly happy to see a few jumps

Friday 25th of August – Balance Bike Quad Eliminator – ENTER HERE

Four riders on the BMX style start gate, elbows out and go! This is action-packed head-to-head racing down into the main arena. Riders will fire out of the four-man start gate at the same time, battling elbows high into the first corner. The course will be fast and flowing with plenty of passing places for the skilled and the brave. The top two racers from each round will go through to the next heat, a simple elimination format as we head to the super finals!

The Balance Bikers showed off their style not just with their bikes but also their riding gear

Saturday 26th of August – Balance Bike Slalom – ENTER HERE

Racing one at a time down the slalom course, the race is against the clock! This is action-packed racing as riders fire out of the BMX style start gate and around the coloured gates. The fastest four from each category will go into the super finals.

The super finals will be based on one race, racing dual slalom head-to-head. Gate pick goes to the rider that qualified fastest.

It s easier to do no footers when you don t have any pedals

Sunday 27th of August – Balance Bike Downhill – ENTER HERE

Downhill is the Formula 1 of mountain bike racing. The purest form of racing with riders racing against the clock. The course will be fast and flowing with plenty of corners for the riders to showcase their skills.

Here are all your Balance Bike World Champions from the weekend

The festival weekend is free to children aged 12 and under as are all the Fair Ground rides, Pump Track, Air Bag and Slack Lines.

Family s and friends were on hand to celebrate with their riders

 I work with a guy who's birthday is on a leap year, technically he's got his 6th birthday coming up, doesn't ride bikes but I think he could be a balance bike phenom.

 If this were to be held in Sydney, Australia, the top post event comment would be "Tarquin got robbed" followed by a helicopter mum demanding a steward's inquiry and a doping sample of a 'shared' Tippee Cup.
