Hey,

Iím the development coordinator for a major pro team. We are always looking for hot new talent and would love to sponsor you without ever seeing you ride or even knowing who you are.

All you need to do to get heaps of free parts, clothes and kicks from some of the best names in BMX is hook us up with your parentís credit card info. We just need those details so we can get a uniform deposit. The super cool leathers all out top pros ride in (and you soon!) cost us big dollars, so Iím sure youíll understand.

So just to recap, message me with your dad or momís credit card number (donít forget to include the last three digits on the back) and will send you heaps of cool stuff and then youíll be doing flip-whip lawnmower flyouts just like Terry Adams, just with more pro stylez.

have your friends give you some cash money and boom!  sponsored!  that's all "sponsored" is.. someone gives you money or something that costs money..  keep at riding and take it seriously for a few years and see where it takes you..you might be surprised. just make sure to have fun :mellow:

Don't worry about getting sponsored... ride your bike, have fun, get to know the other riders in NYC, go to Contests, Jams and other BMX Events...

-Roy
If you are for real, you probably spend enough time on your bike that there's no time left for talking sh*t on message boards.

Of course, if all you do is talk sh*t on message boards, you're probably not as good or as cool as you think you are.

Get the same sponsor as Jeff Desroche!!

You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with an expert in guerrilla warfare, with a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Interwebs his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To Troll! Period! Win by attrition. Well Blindingsun was the best

Most of my friends also say i should get a sponsor but the problem is that they dont know the level of tricks and style you need to become sponsored or even well known in flatland. Good Luck tho!

Colony's thing is if you ask them to sponsor you, you will go straight to the bottom of the list.
If you hassle companies you won't get noticed. Key is to have fun with the sport and gradually become good, then, if the times right others will notice you.
You must ride for fun first and foremost.  :mellow:
