I need...

a sponsorship really bad. I race XC and I want to get on a local team, so that they can help during races and training. I also would like some discounts on bikes/bike stuff because im a High School student that doesnt have much money.


If you guys are on a team in socal and would like/need an extra teammate please let me know!

You road the VQ and there were a lot of sponsored riders there, did you not talk to any of them? Also, you are close (closer then I am) to "The Path" bike shop and they sponsor a lot of riders, why not talk with them?

You are also close to Fontana, head on over there for a race or two, there is a big National there soon as well, and speak with the folks at the booths, ask all the other racers you see with sponsored jerseys on and ask over as socaltrailrider.org, I have seen ya post there and a lot of "The Path" team posts there as well as some "No Brakes" and a few Pros and semi-pros as well.

How do you know I did the VQ? Would I have to bring a resume to "the path" bike shop for a sponsorshop?

Because you post on STR as well. dirtbikedude aka DBD

Over on STR pm "ThePhat" or any of ThePath riders (there are a lot) You could also call the shop or stop by and ask them what they require, they are good people and very friendly.
