If you have rode BMX for a while, or even just a little while, you might have wondered what the trick is to get sponsored. Although the way it happens has changed quite a bit over the years, there’s still a few fundamental parts that haven’t changed. Scotty Cranmer has quite a bit of experience in this department, so he decided to put together a video with some advice, along with a look at how Trey Jones and Big Boy have also picked up sponsors. These three have all had pretty different paths to how they got sponsored, but they all have similarities.

I answer the question that I have been asked a thousand times all over the world “How do I get sponsored?” Every BMX rider would love to be sponsored by a company that would give them free product and in return the rider would represent and promote the company in the best way that they can! In this video we talk about what to do and what not to do while trying to become sponsored. And we also give you our own stories of our first sponsors!” – Scotty Cranmer
