I know there are a few forum users on here that work for bike companies. I'm a roadie in the US looking for sponsorship. If you're looking for a rider to sponsor to use your product(s) please PM me to discuss further.

Mr Shinkansen,

Usually it is up to a rider seeking sponsorship to do a little legwork. I suggest you prepare your resume (if you haven't already) and email or mail it to some of the companies you are interested in working with.

Do not forget that sponsorship is earned and not given, so think about what you can do for the company and not what they can give you for free. You are probably aware of this anyway :)

Good luck.

I've done plenty leg work and sent around my resume with some reasonable success - Seemed like trying on here was worth a shot - You just never know!

What category do you race, what region, and what exactly do you expect to get in terms of sponsorship? I'm not a product manufacturer or distributor...just curious...

1st of all do you have a race resume? if you do either post them or email them to me.

2nd where are you. I won't sponsor riders who are not in my sponsors market, so where you are is important. Well unless you're really good.

I've PM'd you.

1) Yes, I've got a race resume.

2) My location/results etc are on the resume. I'm not Chris Horner (yet)... but working towards that level :wink:

Scroll down to the bottom, "Meet the Teams" in Northern California.
If you're in the neighborhood, homey.

I saw that "Meet the teams" link yesterday. The problem for me is that I'm racing at a level above what most of those teams are racing. A lot of the teams in CA are based around riding parking lot crits every weekend. I'm not into stage races at NRC (National level). Not winning them, but learning and steadily improving. 2005 should be a good season for me. Feel like I'm close to getting a ride on a pro team but need that extra push / support to do it.

The teams in the races that I compete in are healthnet, webcor, colavita, monex, sierra nevada et al. Believe me, I've approached them all but there are more riders than slots available on pro teams so competition is fierce.
