give us some more details like how old you are and other race results. the first step to getting sponsored would probably be to win a few races. keep track of your placings then when you have a resume, send it with your a coverletter to every company you can think of. If you are in college, or will be in college join the tri team, or at least a bike team. if they have some ok racers you should be able to get some deals. Also, unless you are using complete crap, the time savings for new equipment is not nearly as much as a couple years of training. by the way what race was it. I will be at the big boy tri in cincinnati this weekend maybe I will see you. I will be the one in front... hopefully ;)
