To whom it may concern
Well 2020-21 has sure been a couple of different kind of years.
With COVID-19 going on, many if not all of the series races have been canceled, postponed, or totally eliminated. I was only able to enter three races thus far. But the good news is, I either won my class or podium (2 firsts and a third) so far. As of last weekend, I have changed classes to the Senior class (60+ expert class). I still plan on racing moving forward as dates open up and new series are expanded to region, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nor Cal, and Utah.
More than likely, this is a different type of resume than you are used to seeing requesting sponsorship.
I'm an old use-ta-could. I have held number 1 plates in the past and been in the top ten at National Events. Had Factory backing, and many sponsors that I still retain today (maybe even you!)I
I am fortunate to have purchased 2 new bikes in 2019 Yamaha a WR250F(see images and a 2021 YZ450F and I will be racing the +60 expert class. I will be racing select GNCC, National Enduros, Hare Scrambles, Hare & Hounds, Regional events with the USRA, and OMRA. and other NW events
I have also been in the photography business since my first photo was published of the famed Johnny O Mara at the 1980 125/500 National at Washougal. Although I took a time off for a few years, I am back at shooting more than ever. I have broadened out my disciplines to include Skate, BMX, Snowboard, Ski, to go along with my passion for Enduro, MX, and Freeriding. Not to mention some of the conventional types like lifestyle, still, studio, wildlife and landscape photography.
My photos have been featured in publication both domestically like Racer X, Cycle News, and many others including some that are no longer in publication and internationally. Various DVD and Video covers MotoXXX 3-5, Godfrey Films, Terafima and others. Along with many….many ads, catalogs and websites (maybe even yours). I still am quite active in motorcycle racing competing in local, regional, national and industry races at the professional/expert level (well, now an old fart in 2021),. I also still mountain bike, snowboard, kayak and fly fish.
My proposal is a simple one. . I am seeking a product type of sponsorship that would include your product. I would represent your company in ways that would exceed your expectations by wearing apparel at events, handing out stickers to kids (both them and I love it), and promoting your products while racing, riding, photo shoots, filming of DVD’s. In return, we could look at possibly supplying your company with photos for your website and ad work to enhance your advertising campaign. I will also be posting on Instagram! @dajohn103 (check it out!)
I have my logo designed and starting up my website which will be coming soon) www.801Motosports.com. The website will have my race profile, photos, adventures and stories. This year I will also be working with a great cause Off road riders for Veterans in helping them acquire off road capable wheel chairs.
. I would be more than happy to link to your website and place review your product . Copyrighted sample photos available on MX Sponsor, along with a portfolio upon request
