Buy a cool mx bike. Play around in a pit. Learn to spin up the rear wheel, hit a couple jumps. Post on TT. Profit.

It's similar to looking for a job with a resume'.

Once you start consistantly winning at the amateur level, put together a portfolio of your accomplishments and start knocking on doors at your local shops. Start in the motorcycle shops of course, but also hit hardware stores, contractors, where you or your family work.

When you are at the track...hit up the vendors as well. Then, you can always use the mega outfits you find online as mentioned above.

Put a resume together saying you race locally and are consistently in the top 10, and you're working your guts out to get faster and better and stronger. You're goal is to win races and win championships locally within your class..and you're thinking next year you are going to expand your program to do some regional races and hope to make it to Loretta's! Make sure you have a couple of pictures where you look like a serious racer...not a gangsta muggin it up or a Jed Clampet look-a-like on a clapped out 94 YZ125. Don't over do it...just appear serious and committed. More than likely you'll get what you deserve, maybe pick up a couple minor sponserships that save you 10-20% on parts/graphics/etc. And for the young dreamers out there, unless you're the next big thing out of your region...you ain't gittin nuthin fer free.

You would get tons of deals through mx sponsor. Check it out make a profile for free, and watch the deals roll in. Its not all about racing its about riding in general.
