I thought I'd post up here since I'm getting a lot of the same questions from folks about the SPS program in North America. By a lot- I mean about 10 times a day.
Please post your questions and I'll get back every-so-often to answer them. I'm not going to be here 24*7, so please be patient.

Without trying to sound like I'm being a "solicitor" - here's a few quick FAQ that we happen to get almost daily.


-Anyone can apply - we are looking for multiple age groups, skill levels, and geographies (beginner up to pro, grom's to geezers).

-You get a bike, clothes, pads, helmet, training plans, support at selected events, etc. No private jets or expense accounts at strip clubs.

-This IS a selective process - we have a limited number of memberships to award, so not everyone will get in. Apply, and try to show that you are a nice person who has passion and is a good stewart to both our sponsors and mountain biking. That'll go a long way to getting you an acceptance letter.

-Yes, we will have 2 separate Steve Peat Camp/ Ride Day/ Sessions. Basically - riding lifts with Steve Peat and probably Mitch Ropelato with the purpose of getting you some quality advice and coaching.

-No, we don't have a schedule yet. Our members vote on the events they want our support vehicle at (mechanic, tent, tunes, seating, grub, etc)

-No, I'm not Steve Peat. I work with him because I believe in this program and in giving back to the sport.




We have a website with some info on it - but feel free to ask questions below!


Thanks!

Don't feel too bad. They don't seem to be giving bikes away. It appears if you are chosen you still buy your bike and gear. Pro kit is $7000 and Team kit is $5600. If you have the $$ it seems like a good opportunity to get a nice bike, some mechanic support at select events, and a chance to ride with Peat himself.
