National Glory

National Glory

Adult Scooter, or Footbike, racing in Australia is still in its infancy, presenting any player the chance of national glory.

As Kickbiking expands, official race meets will multiply, culminating in the selection of an Australian team to compete in the World Cup and also World Championships.

The Governing body of our sport is the (IKSA) International Kicksled and Scooter Association. They aim to take us to the Olympics. Given that Kicksledding appeared as a demo sport in the winter Olympics, they’re kicking goals.

The Australian Footbike Association was set up with the goal of having competitive participation at the bi-annual World Championships.  We have now had an Australian team at every event since 2010, and the World Championships is next due in 2018. Join us at www.footbike.com.au. The Asssociation has been succesful with it’s first goals, and we want to continue to grow the sport here in Australia, as well as worldwide.

If you think yér butt’s seen better days, take heed. Most competitors in Europe are aged 30+ and they look a treat. In fact the 40+ age category is nearly as competitive as the open categories, and in the past have been the open World Champion.
