About this Event

How to become the Balance Bike World World Champion?

Racing over three days, in three separate disciplines; Quad Eliminator, Dual Slalom and Downhill.

Riders will receive points for each race on each day with the top 15 receiving the following points each days race, in each category as follows: 1st - 100 points, 2nd - 80 points, 3rd 70 points, 4th - 60 points, 5th - 50 points, 6th - 45 points, 7th - 40 points, 8th - 35 points, 9th - 30 points, 10th - 25 points, 11th - 20 points, 12th - 15 points, 13th - 10 points, 14th 5 - points, 15th - 2 points.

The riders that accumulate the most points in their category over the three races will be crowned the Balance Bike World Champion on Sunday afternoon at 14:00 on the main stage. The top three will receive medals in each category.

This race entry is for Day 1 - Quad Eliminator on Friday the 27th of August.

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 top 3 will then be invited onto the main stage for medal presentations.

Fun and competitive racing open to children aged from Two years old to Five years in a number of age categories.

Warning, Rules and Regulations.

Balance biking can be an inherently dangerous sport with the possibility of injuries. No matter where you ride or how well you know the course your child should never ride beyond their skill level and always ride in control and in a sensible manner. Riding in control does not just mean being able to stop, it also means having the requisite skills to recognise and avoid potentially dangerous situations on the course. Avoiding accidents with other riders is an essential biking skill. Riders must use the course in a sensible manner compatible with their level of experience. Riders should walk the course with their parents or guardians, observing current ground conditions, making them aware of any obstacles prior to riding the course. We ask parents and guardians to accept that their child will ride the course at their own risk and accept that no liability can be accepted by the event organisers.

-During practice, each rider must complete at least two runs of the course to be able to race.

-Any rider that misses their start slot/call-up will be disqualified.

-Riders must ride around, not over, each gate, with both tyre tracks passing on the outside of each gate. A missed gate (that is not returned to and passed correctly), or a run over a gate, will result in the rider being disqualified.

-If there is a tie for any in the top three we will run a run off.

Racers will be disqualified for the following:

-Changing from one course to another.

-Interfering with the opposing riders progress.

-Not finishing in possession of their bike.

-Not passing both wheels around the gate.

-Missing a gate and going beyond the next gate.

-Running over a gate.

Equipment: The Bicycle can be of any make or brand, though it must be capable of safely and efficiently completing the task and must, as a minimum, be mechanically sound and all reasonable steps must be taken to ensure the safety of the rider and others. As part of the latter, bar plugs are compulsory. Bikes must be a balance bike with no stabilisers. A regular pedal bike with the chain, pedals or cranks removed is not allowed. Brakes are permitted.

Helmets: It is compulsory to wear a protective helmet when racing or training on the course and such helmet must comply with the required safety standards defined in the General Regulations. A full-face helmet is recommended though we will allow an open face helmet to be worn. The helmet must be properly secured in both training and racing. Helmets with a removable chin piece are acceptable, please ensure the chin piece is correctly attached as recommended by the manufacturer. POV cameras are allowed and must be correctly fitted to the helmet.
