Are you a US-based Team interested in joining Challenge Tires as a part of our 2012 Road Tire Grassroots Sponsorship program? We are currently accepting applications for the program that will allow teams access to preferred pricing on all Road Products. We understand the importance of a quality handmade tire and we want to help you get equipped with the best. If you feel you have what it takes and can meet the requirements; then we want to hear your story! Good luck!
New to the grassroots program for 2012, Challenge Tires will be using Hoss Active Sports Group as the distributor of your product to ensure you receive your tires much faster than in the past. Shipping will also now be included in all team tire costs. Each team will be notified via e-mail when their product is being shipped and if the product is in stock or has to be manufactured.
Your team proposal needs to be two to three pages.
Include a few team photos.

We recognize that not every team has the same agenda or timeline. Therefore we want to offer teams more than one chance to take part in our program. We are giving each team 4 chances to submit proposals. Once your team has submitted their proposal a decision will be made by the last day of that month. Once the team has been notified of their acceptance they will then have two weeks to place the order. If the team does not submit their team order by deadline they will default to the next months deadlines.
