What Are My Chancesbigbadtrikid

Hey. I'm 15 and I think I'm a pretty good triathlete and I was wondering what my chances are of getting a sponsor. I had a triahlon on July 21st and out of the 526 people that finished I was the youngest person in the feild and I came in 27th and had the 15th fastest bike of the day. And the I had another race on Sunday (July 8th) and I got 17th out of 286 and had the 11th fastest bike of the day against some of the hardest comp in the mideast region and I was wearing toe clips and running shoes in both races. If I go back to the next race of the seris of the one where i got 17th and turn out the same time and do really good in my next sprint I could be ranked as high as the top 3 in the nation for kids 15 and under that are ranked on the USAT site. If you have any suggestions on getting a sponsor ship, know of any good site, or what to reffer me to anyone I would apreciate it. Thank you very much for your time.

You might want to post this over on the triathalon board, I'm sure you'd get better info on tri sponsors than you will from here.

Is there such a thing as a triathalon club/team? If so, you might want to talk to one of them.

Also maybe try a local tri shop or LBS that sells tri bikes. Or, at your next race, talk to some of the competitors who are already sponsored.

Good Luck.
