STRIDER Partners with AMA Pro Racing!

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 10, 2012) – AMA Pro Racing is excited to announce a partnership with Strider Sports International for the 2012 AMA Pro Hillclimb season.

AMA Pro Hillclimb produces extreme competition in a truly traditional form of motorcycle racing dating back to the early 1900’s, pitting man and machine against mountainous terrain in a race against the clock. The fan-friendly and family-oriented atmosphere of the events will be bolstered in 2012 with the addition of the STRIDER® Adventure Zone at each of the AMA Pro Hillclimb events on this year’s calendar.

“We’re excited to have the Strider Adventure Zones participate at the AMA Pro Hillclimb events,” said Ryan McFarland, chief executive officer of Strider Sports International. “These are fun, off-road motorcycle enthusiast events, and now there will be two-wheeled adventure for even the youngest family members in attendance.”

The STRIDER® Adventure Zone is a safe and friendly environment that encourages kids 18 months to 5 years old to explore mobility on two wheels, and experience the challenge and thrill of riding on unique terrain and obstacles. STRIDER™ no-pedal balance bikes will be supplied by the company for toddlers, young children, and families to join in and participate in two-wheeled action of their own on race day.

“This is a great way to highlight our focus of family at our events,” said Scott Campbell, President of the Professional Hillclimbers Association, promoters of the 2012 AMA Pro Hillclimb Championship. “We want to use the 2012 season as a way to improve the experience at every race for every race fan and the STRIDER® Adventure Zone is a perfect start to exposing the kids to the love of two wheels. We are pleased to have Strider’s support and interest in our Series and being added to their already popular and growing list of events.”

The 2012 AMA Pro Hillclimb season will kick off on June 3 at the White Rose Motorcycle Club in Jefferson, Pa. For more information on AMA Pro Hillclimb, please visit
