Sponsorship Question

Hi All

I have a question, I want to ride more competitively but I can't afford all the races so how does one go about getting a sponsor to sponsor the entry fees and so on?

I have a great bike, it is not the best but it is perfect for me so I don't need them to sponsor me a bike or any big thing I just need the entry fee.

Do you think it is possible to get a sponsor like this, what will I need to do to get one or how do I go about this?

 

Thanks in advance

Try looking to join a club first with a racing team, like club100, if you're good enough for the team they should pay your entry. after that results results results.

the only problem is in Potchefstroom we don't have clubs like that.

 

Post your results. Without results, you're wasting your time looking for a handout.

I understand that I have to do very good in a race to be considered, that is obvious. every race I have ridden I have gotten better and better and i normally end in the front half but these are the "not important" races so they don't mean much I have started doing the bigger races like the Down and Dirty and so on but the problem is that there are so many that I want to do but my budget will not allow it. So I can't get better results if I can't enter....

Gee... Join the club. Win a few races, even a couple, and free things will come to you. \

FFS!

honest answer:it's possible to win the lotto powerball.

you do realise that only about 2% of the guys get support. that's the front half of the front half of the front half of the front half of the front half of the front half.

 

keep training!
