Sponsor wanted!

Below average mountain bike racer seeks philanthropic individual or organization to sponsor dream ride.

Sponsorship will entail entry fee ($1900 plus tax) to to the Transrockies Stage Race, an epic seven day race starting in Fernie, British Colombia Canada and rolling through awesome scenery at around 40 miles a day.



I don't see my self enjoying this ride too much on a single speed, so a new bike will be included in the package. I'm pretty reasonable here...the 2010 Specialized Epic Comp ($2800 plus tax) would be sufficient.

These are the biggies, but I'll probably need another $2000 or so to cover plane tickets, transfers to Fernie, food and other incidentals.

What do you, the sponsor, receive in return for your $8k? I'll use your name a lot both in person and here on the interweb,  wear a jersey with your name/logo and/or do just about anything you want. I also promise to get in good enough shape as not to embarrass either of us.

I eagerly await your proposal.
