Commentator at the Kindy 500.
Now, the moment we’ve been waiting for: Toddlers, start your engines (er, feet).
And the tricycle takes the lead. Look at those pedals go.
Out of nowhere, the Micro G-bike leaves the trike in the dust. What a beaut. The sleek aluminum design weighs less than four pounds, giving the racer an edge over its clunky competitors.
Wait, little Jimmy and his training wheels are in hot pursuit.
Can the G-rider, with its scooter-like wheels, hold him off?
Oh, no! Jimmy’s down. Those training wheels just can’t be trusted.
But the G’s flying toward the finish. Without pedals, the rider fully concentrates on balance. No nasty falls here. Look how it handles — such equilibrium, such poise.
Looks like we have a winner, G.
