While many race fans relish the flashy factory race bikes, teams and gear, it’s easy to overlook the working class hero, the person who makes up the backbone of Supercross and motocross racing… The privateer. Southern California native, Scott Champion, is just that person. Financially funding his own racing career, if Champion doesn’t do well one weekend, it could potentially mean not enough funds to make it to the following race. We decided to spend a few days with Champion to see what it’s like for a privateer as they prepare for the biggest Supercross race of the season… Anaheim 1. 7th January.
