Pro Taper to Reward Academic Excellence with Special Sponsorship

Coming off another outstanding year of racing, Pro Taper is looking to raise the bar in amateur rider support. Not only are racers going to be rewarded for there on-the-track results, but this year Pro Taper is offering special incentives and additional sponsorship tiers for riders who also succeed in school. "We believe it is vital to reward riders who work hard in school as well as at the track," said Kevin Strikwerda, Marketing Manager for Pro Taper. "Education is very important in helping develop well rounded riders who will be able to succeed on and off the racetrack."

For the 2009 season, in addition to its normal amateur sponsorship program, Pro Taper will be implementing a new sponsorship program through where team riders will be rewarded for academic success with exclusive rewards, products and discounts. Called the Pro Taper "PT School of Roost," this program is available for any Pro Taper rider who achieves a grade point average of 3.0 and above. Additional benefits and support are also going to be available to riders who demonstrate positive contributions to their local community.

Strikwerda states, " This year's program will be positive for both Pro Taper and our Amateur support riders. Today's amateur riders are tomorrow's role models and we want to reward those who are investing in themselves academically and their community. Its important that Pro Taper shows these riders support for being outstanding pillars in their communities."

How it works: For the upcoming 2009 season, all riders must submit their resumes to Pro Taper through and apply to become a Pro Taper Team Rider. Of those chosen, any Team Rider with a GPA over 3.0 needs to submit their report cards or letters of achievement through to be accepted into the specialized "PT School of Roost" program. 

Pro Taper wishes all racers the best of luck the rest of this year and is looking forward to the possible sponsorship opportunities this upcoming season.

Good Luck and see you at the races,

Pro Taper
