Our goal is to have each team identified with one Team Sponsor. Team Sponors will be selected on a first-come first-serve basis.

Team sponsors can have their identity associated with a team, much like race teams in the Tour de France. Team sponsor support will go towards, for example, team travel, accommodation and food, towards GPS tracking and mapping, timing, and incidental supplies, communication and mechanical/medical services.

RTL is organizing an 800km unicycle race named "Ride The Lobster".
The race is to be held 16-20 June 2008.
It is to be run over a five day period, between Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, in the south, to Sydney, Cape Breton, in the north.
Relay teams representing different countries will pass through/by over 80 communities, 6 tourist regions and 12 municipalities of the province.

The goal is to attract the top long distance unicyclists from around the world to a unique and challenging race -- a race never before attempted. Teams will be tracked via satellite GPS transmissions and their positions mapped live via the internet, accessible on-line to media and spectators.
A Team Sponsor is the principal supporter of their sponsored race team. It is anticipated that the race will run 20-25+ relay teams of 3-4 riders each, representing
15+ countries (some countries having several teams).

The Team Sponsor wishes to provide financial support for RTL in return for which RTL will provide to the Team Sponsor a range of marketing opportunities and other services.
