Athlete Support Help Guide

Athlete Support - Rich Houseman -

When your competitive season rolls around, it's time to freshen up your profile with new photos and videos, update your competition results and start researching brands you would like to represent for the upcoming season.

Support levels and agreements vary by company, but can range anywhere from product discounts to free products and beyond (based on talent and marketability).

Always remember, Athlete Support is a two-way street and brands select athletes to represent them and offer deals comparable to how much exposure you can generate for their company. Just a few of the hundreds of participating brands offering athlete support for 2013 on include Monster Army, Yoshimura, TiLube, FreeGun Underwear, Powersport Grafx, Deft Family, Spy Optic, RockwellDunlop Tires, AXO, Fuel Clothing, Twin Air, Renthal, Matrix Concepts and GoPro.
