Well....If youre really good or even think your good. Just go to jams and contests where you will be noticed. Most start small by trying to get sponsored by bike shops or skateparks. But its really about going to contests if you want to get noticed by bigger sponsors. You can try doing sponsor videos or sometimes there are video contests that you can enter. Presonally I look at riders levels as being Beginner, Amateur or Expert. If you want to be a "Pro", go and WIN contests.

This right here.

Be a DAMN good rider, and a DAMN good person to go along with it. Make yourself known in BMX, get a job at a shop and go to contests, post videos online, submit to websites that post them (vital, tcu etc) and again, BE DAMN GOOD.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

Do you honestly expect intellectual conversation with a bunch of hormonal teenage boys who all think they are the greatest thing ever?

And honestly, you are acting JUST LIKE THEM because of your insults.

you don't ride bmx just to be pro. you should either ride it because you LIKE it when you ride, or rather not.

you'll become a pro when you start riding for fun, just ride because you like it and make sure you have fun and every trick pulls another. you'll find your self capable of doing the most of the hard tricks existing, riding in a unique style which will bring you sponsors too. if you keep looking for a way to becoming a pro rider you'll rolly end up quitting because of al the despair and depression.
