Great things are happening here in STRIDERVILLE!
On Friday September 19th at 4:25pm at Main Street Square, Rapid City- Strider Sports International will host its first ever official Special Olympics exhibition race! For the past month, athletes from Special Olympics South Dakota Flame have had weekly STRIDER training sessions.
The riders ranging in age from approximately 8 to 35 are participating in this event without having any previous experience at all on a two wheeled bike. They are so excited to show off their new skills! The athletes have worked hard, and have come a long way. During the training sessions riders are practicing starting gates, riding side by side, ramps, passing, and other obstacles typical in a racing environment. Come by for this life changing event and cheer on the Flame!
