Many riders dream of being sponsored – it’s like getting paid to endorse your favorite products, while doing what you love – riding! Here at Galfer, we love supporting talented riders and provide sponsorships for many.
Currently, Galfer USA sponsors 238 amateur riders for 2014 and over 25 pro teams for Supercross, Motocross and Roadracing. You are probably wondering how they choose their riders. According to Robert Davila, “A lot of people don’t realize this, but sponsorship does not rely solely on race results. A sponsorship deal is a relationship between racer and brand, and we look for athletes that make an effort to actively promote their sponsors, whether that be at races and events or on social media.”
Each year Galfer receives a lot of applications from all kinds of riders. “Believe it or not, I read every resume and double check race results. This helps me place them and shows me if they are promoting their current sponsors year-round.” Sponsorship deals take many shapes and sizes, so riders of all ages, skill levels and race series are encouraged to apply. Interested parties should send their race résumé to [email protected].
