I absolutely could not make it to the Dakar rally without the help and support of my sponsors and followers.
I committed to the whole campaign in January this year by purchasing a Factory 450RR Rally bike but this was really only the start. I realise that every little will help my campaign and in order to give something back in return for those that donate or support my campaign, I am doing something quite unique. I wanted to try and make it beneficial for everybody in more ways than one.
First of all, for all my supporters, at whatever level, I will update them through this blog. This will have weekly updates of progress on my racing, rally bike set-up and prep, tuning, preparations for Dakar and a load of other fun stuff including training progress, pictures and cool video’s. I will be providing daily updates throughout the race via telephone call-ins, written details, interviews, daily photo’s and video footage. I hope that the above will provide my supporters a better insight into what it’s all about and allow them to enjoy the experience more than ever before and get value from their contribution.
The individual supporter will have an option of support packages ranging from single purchases of less than £100 to over £1000 including an incremental range of goodies ranging from t-shirts and stickers to high end motorcycle accessories and clothing, discount codes and some amazing riding opportunities. I am currently building a series of support packages with some really cool product to be had.
Finally, as an addition to the above, I am working on some unique media opportunities to allow my sponsors and supporters to have easy access to race information, media and updates to allow you to follow my progress throughout the year including Dakar.
Please watch this space for different ways to support this race effort.
