Question for TriToy...
Quote | Reply
Okay so this isn't so much a Womens post but I know she posts here all the time... and I figured other people could probably benefit from the answer instead of just PMing her...

So anyways, I've noticed for a while that in your signature line you're "Sponsored by Suntheanine, Lycored and Celadrin "

My question is, as an amateur, what kind of stuff do you have to do to fulfill sponsorship obligations for a medicine/drug? In tris, if you're sponsored by Felt, Zipp, Cervelo, Specialized, Zoot, Desoto, etc. I would think it's easy - wear/use their stuff, win in it, get your photos taken, etc. But with a pharmeceutical sponsor, it seems like it would be hard.

The reason I'm asking is because it looks like you've hooked up a SWEET deal, and I'm wondering how I can get in on the non-tri sponsorship action, and figured you could give some good advice. I can think of potential sponsors, but I have no idea how I could pitch to potential non-sport related sponsors what kind of obligations I can fulfil for them.

And, hopefully I haven't asked you to violated any contract/agreement you have with them :-)

Your speed matters a lot, sometimes you need to be very fast, where sometimes you need to breakdown your speed.

I think she is joking about her sponsorship... Kind of like me saying I'm sponsored by Advil, because I take so much of it.

But, odds are you're right.

Commence pointing and laughing.... now....

And now, you do know everything, including the taste of humble pie. Not to worry, as there are no calories involved.

no I really am sponsored - no joke - my p3C, zipps and powertaps were paid for by the makers of Celadrin, though at the time for a different product.

I consult in the supplement world, and these three companies loved that I was getting into triathlon - and not as some sort of genetic freak. So separate from reviewing their research etc, with some of the cities they have targeted for media I race -

so my first triathlon in florida was paid for by lycored - in exchange I went on local news in Tampa and radio to talk about the research on sun protection and the lycored product. (I also take it for recovery but that is a whole other story that I am happy to elaborate on but not the point of this).

Philadelphia and Chicago were paid for by Suntheanine - thus the DeSoto suit I wore at Chicago is emblazoned with Suntheanine - tv fell through at the last minute in chicago but I have a long relationship with them so this will be on going. PA I had some radio interviews.

The angle is a bit different here - I already do media for them as a doc (these happen to be 3 products that I think highly of). I have been doing this kind of work for 10 years - and just approached the PR firm that I have a relationship with about my training and racing.

We are still developing how this will look in the future - whether they will have a presence at races....

I am (using existing research) looking at supplements for recovery in endurance sports - these all tie in.

so my sig really is not a joke -

http://www.celadrin.com
http://www.suntheanine.com

for more of the research on those products....

For what it's worth, the "iknoweverything" moniker is not actually because I think I know everything, but rather because everyone else in the main forum seems to, so I thought I'd have fun with them. The best part is, the WORST of the egotistical people from there always make a comment about how I very clearly don't know everything.... hehe.
