INTRODUCTION:
I am one of Australia's best professional BMX (Bicycle Moto Cross) racers. BMX Racing is one of the fastest growing youth and family sports in America and I want to be a part of it. I will be traveling to the United States in and around 1998 to start the new ESPN televised A.B.A (AMERICAN BICYCLE ASSOCIATION) BMX season. The season runs almost all year long, and my plan is to be in America to promote/coach/race for my 1998/99 sponsors. I have full media ability (television/radio/paper, etc.) and have professional attitudes and views.

RANKING:
I am ranked in the TOP 3 in Australia and I am an accredited coach. I travel from national event to national event week to week to coach and race for our main sponsors here in Australia and overseas.

MY PROPOSAL:
As with any elite professional sport , Corporate backing is needed, without the proper funding , travel costs outweigh the prizemoney so this makes it quite difficult to get to the right races involving E.S.P.N television. Being an Australian on the US circuit guarantees media interest, and being media literate means media spotlight for the both the riders and the sponsors.Having a company such as your caliber behind me gives phenomenal media exposure worldwide on the nation's most watched sports channel as well as all the local television & media from the local areas which will be in attendance at the A.B.A.& NBL national races.

NOTE: I can also donate a percentage of my race earnings to a charity / or charitys of your companys choice......and will also so be available for any thing your company has to do with keeping KIDS OFF DRUGS! I come in contact with thousands of kids each week at the national races and at our accredited coaching clinics, so any anti drug programme you have in place would be most welcome.

WHAT I WILL REQUIRE: (FOR 1999-2000 SEASON)

  • Travel assistance to compete at national races (paid as a weekly wage or available as required)
  • Branding of all race clothes / bikes / helmets / vehicle etc. (Includes custom painted helmet, with all required corp logos)
  • All promotional material / catalogs /specifications /etc. involving your company
  • Contract for both parties securing both our interests

NOTE: This is a very modest proposal. I will need travel asistance and product for my season on the ESPN televised curcuit: So if you would like your Company logo shown worldwide to hundreds of millions of people on the worlds most watched sports channel , Why not come aboard and sponsor an Elite AUSTRALIAN Athlete who PROUDLY competes for his country against the worlds best.

All the big name companys are involved!

*SPONSORSHIP IS TAX DEDUCTABLE*

Well if interested in my programme, please email asap (if you need verification on me, I can supply all you need). I will be based in Tennessee.(Nashville) Thanks for your time!
