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!
Friday 25th of August – Balance Bike Quad Eliminator
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!
Saturday 26th of August – Balance Bike Slalom
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.
Sunday 28th of August – Balance Bike Downhill
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.
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.
