All sponsors behind cyclocross, gravel, and mountain bike racing teams are putting themselves out there with the hope of a return on their investment. ROI is a hard metric to measure. More often than not, blue-collar-racer investments are more of a donation to good racers’ dreams.
The two most noticeable ways to prove that racers are doing their jobs are through social media channels and proof of purchase. If you want to see the sport of cyclocross grow and believe that more money can be invested in its growth, you can help the cause. Support your favorite teams and riders. Boost them through social with likes, hearts, re-posts, re-tweets and tags. Buy from those brands and then tell everyone about it.
If you’re rolling your eyes at that request, then we’re losing. Be loud and proud of our racers and the brands behind them or else the sport stagnates and nothing will change. Plus, we all know the interwebs could use more positivity.
More money = more media = more exposure = more money and the cycle goes on…
If you race, ride, cheer, or invest in cycling and believe in this message, feel free to share and use this as a template.
