Factory Connection - Rider Support

The 2023 Rider Support application period is now closed. Factory Connection accepts applications Sept 1st to Dec 31st each year.


Factory Connection supports Amateur and Professional level riders in all aspects of Off-road racing. We are currently looking for racers and riders that are going to represent the Factory Connection name in a positive manner. It is not just about winning races it is about sharing your experiences of using Factory Connection Suspension with others and promoting the Factory Connection Brand to the best of your ability.

As a Factory Connection sponsored Athlete we would like you to provide feedback on local tracks and how your suspension is performing and we will require you to use and promote Factory Connection Products and Services whenever possible across your Social Media Platforms and any other Podium or Media opportunities that may arise.
