Each selected rider will be recognized for his ability to overcome the odds in pursuit of his racing dream, and the unwavering determination to go bar-to-bar alongside the most talented racers on the planet.
Each recipient of the FMF Privateer Power Award is recognized during the riders meeting at the following national and is awarded with a custom-designed trophy.
With a career that dates back all the way to 2004, no active rider in Pro Motocross has more racing experience than Kyle Chisholm. The veteran has seen everything over the course of his long career, and through it all he's always managed to exceed expectations. For the past decade of 450 Class competition Chisholm has become beloved for his commitment to the sport. He loves to race and will do whatever it takes to line up on the starting gate. No matter what the circumstance, Chisholm's extensive knowledge and race savvy allows him to be highly competitive amongst an increasingly deep field of talent. More often than not he manages to outperform riders who are considerably younger and is a virtual lock to score points every time the gate drops. At the GEICO Motorcycle WW Ranch National Chisholm made his first start of the 2020 season and like a true racing veteran he was immediately competitive. The Florida native was in the thick of the battle inside the top 15 all day long and ultimately earned 15-12 moto scores, which was enough to land him 14th overall. To obtain such a strong result in his first appearance it became clear that Chisholm was the deserving recipient of this week's FMF Privateer Power Award.
