2019 Team SFO Sponsorship Opportunity


Team SFO offers a unique offering through four avenues to promote your brand/product. This is great opportunity to support an event series, a vehicle build, a lifestyle brand and a nomad.

1. Super Fun Outdoors Adventure Series

Founded in 2008 as the San Francisco Bike Expo, we have expanded the channel from a bicycle to adventure focus in 2017 and the number of events from one to five. Depending on the location of the event and venue, we produce a combination of Adventure Vehicle Shows, Dirt Jump Competitions, Camping, Vendor Marketplaces and more. Currently, we have events established in Northern and Southern California and access to 1500 acre ranch 45 minutes from Truckee and Reno in the Lost Sierra Region where we have the ability to host custom private events. See www.SFOAdventure.com for more information and follow https://www.instagram.com/SFOAdventure on Instagram.

2. Team SFO Sprinter Van

The official wheels of the SFO team is a 2016 Mercedes Sprinter Van 170 4×4. We are partnering up with CAtuned Off Road based in Sacramento, CA to build the exterior of this unicorn vehicle. Their vehicles have been regularly featured at the SEMA Show. The first phase of the build includes the highly sort after custom front bumper. The van will be featured in all our events.

3. rideSFO

Founded in 2003, as downhill mountain biking group out of the San Francisco Bay Area, rideSFO added a retailer and lifestyle brand component in 2005. We had a ten year run with a brick and mortar storefront in Oakland and San Francisco. In 2015, we closed the store due to several factors but this has giving birth to Uncle Nomad. We are currently revamping the website and will be focused on unique products and rideSFO handcrafted goods. Our following is still strong within the Bay Area and Worldwide.

The Living Wide Lid!

4. Uncle Nomad

Aka Phil Segura is the Founder and Owner of all of the above. The nickname came about after the store closing in 2015 as he set out to reset his focus and direction by living a nomadic lifestyle while visiting his family and friends. His goals are to inspire people to get outside and connect adventure dots for people. Besides managing the events and brand, he is a avid mountain biker, devoted yogi, worldwide traveler, wannabe backpacker and digital nomad. For 2019, he is participating in the Bring Your Own Big Wheel Race, Norra Mexican 1000 in Baja, CA Lost & Found Gravel Grinder Bike Race on 6/1 in Portola, CA, 46 mile Mount Whitney Backpacking Trip in July and a 5 day Backingpacking Trip Machu Pichu in Peru in September.
