We started a new racing team this year which includes cat. 2,3,4 and masters 45+. Currently we are giving two sets of uniforms and two race entries each month.
How much sponsorship money do most teams get? What do other teams offer their riders?
We are pleased with our members now, but want to have some enticing benefits offer other prospective members in the future.
Thanks for any input.

I'm not going to name any teams in particular, nor mine. Our big sponsorship will likely go for around $20K/$25K next year. Min. sponsorships to get on the kit for $3000. A local team we compete against got a deal for $100K maybe 3 or so years ago. They of course got a car and all sorts of other stuff out of that. That deal is over and that sponsor is gone.

Thanks for the info. I understand this is info that many are not willing to share. I don't want to know team or personal names. I know what teams are getting locally, and we got $20K this year very easily. I was hoping to get feedback from a more diverse audience.

It varies greatly between teams. We've got one big sponsor and maybe 10 other littler ones that have given various amounts. We've also got some deals with shops and some some component deals as well. All the terms vary widely. We are probably in the ballpark of being one of the better funded teams in our area. Top 1/3 I'd guess. Competition is extremely thick in California and there is a massive number of strong and well funded teams.
