    You're not going to get a sponsor by asking, you have to prove yourself and show you are worthy of one...try asking a local bike shop, maybe make a video before you go in and just tell them you want a sponsorship, that doesnt necesarily mean free bikes it could mean free tune ups, stuff thats little, but matters!

    Check the Powerbar website. They give grants up to $10,000 for folks to improve in their sport. You have to do a short essay, and they give out these grants about 3 times a year.

    This is a reply I have done in another thread to this question

    Also, don't expect to get much, you will (if you get sponsorship) ony get grassroots at max, this means you get things at cost or (most usualy for newly sponsored) at cost plus X%. Grass roots gives you more exposure and the ability to possibly get better sponsorship. Really it's grassroots because, they like it when you grow, but don't mind gutting you when things get tough. Really the best bet you have is to approach your LBS.

    Or with Maxxis, you just have to have some kind of positive impact on the industry or in the mtbing field or in advocacy.
