    Well 1st off you don't need sponsorhouse.com its just the middle man trying to make money. Deals help yes, but remeber you have to think of the future as well. Working hard promoting your sponsor in the best way you can in a professional manner is probably the best thing you can do on the side when your not on the hill. Try writing letters and resume's with race results and what you plan for your race season to some companies. Tell them a little about your self and your backround helps rather than reading somthing off the internet when you can read someones trouble of putting together a portfolio and mailing it. For those just starting out I would probably recommend that internet tool. I hope that helps, good luck in the future.

    I agree with Max. While I think the concept of Spnsorhouse is pretty cool, I don't think too many riders have been picked up by sponsors through them. If there are riders who have been picked up using Sponsorhouse I would like to hear about it...

    Well average people aren't gonna get picked up by a factory team or anything, it's just a way for smaller dudes to get there name out there sort of and pick up some sponsors, I guess there are some pros on there too.

    Umm, theres been alot. Some companies don't even accept resumes, and you have to use sponsorhouse.

    I used sponsorhouse

    Quite a few companies will only accept sponsorship requests from a clearinghouse like sponsorhouse.com. Mostly what you will find is discount programs for sponsored riders. The discounts vary but unless you are at the expert level or above and have a decent race resume as well as some community involvement/connection the discounts can be negligable. Most discounts can be matched by online retailers such as jenson, cambria, pricepoint etc. It is a good way to get your feet wet in the sponsorship arena but don't expect the factory race team to send you a new rig and race kit since you won the regional DH series beginner class.

    Sponsors are looking for EXPOSURE. The more positive exposure you can offer that will increase name recognition and potential sales, the better your chances of obtaining sponsorships.

    Very few sponsors are just going to send you free gear.

    Another thing to consider is the agreements you are asked to sign.
    Most companies want exclusive rights. This means if you sign with Azonic and use Fox shinguards and a 661 preasure suit you are violating the agreement. I had offers from several different companies that had competing products. Some I could not accept some that I could.
    The Super T you have is really a very good fork. I'd take that fork over a Fox 40 or a Boxer unless i was entering a fashon contest instead of a race

    I use it and have had really good luck with it. I think it's the wave of the future, just like very few companies out there want people to mail them job resumes. It makes life easier on both sides, plus it's an easy way for them to get out contact into, who wanted a couple hundred riders calling asking about sponsorship. I think the fact that companies like Foes, Chumba Wumba, Turner, and IH are using it show it has promise. It's well worth the money in my opinion.

    However like anyting you have to put effort into it or it won't work for ya.
