To get a good sponsorship deal is quite hard.
When it comes to Salomon I think it's a part of their marketing. When they entered the snowboarding scene, I was "sponsored" by them as well. Sponsored in the sense that I got one free board, and one for trade price. It doesn't cost them too much to hand out some new boards, just so the brand will get some attention.
There is a long way to go from that deal, to being sponsored in my opinion.
Keep riding, have fun, and see what happends.
