Rick Johnson on Having COVID-19 | Fly Racing


Presented by FLY Racing

Earlier this afternoon, motocross and Supercross legend Rick Johnson announced on his Instagram account (@therickyjohnson) that he had tested positive for COVID-19. Already on the backside of the virus, RJ shared some insight about what the illness was like in his post. As the first person we actually know who has been infected with Coronavirus, we thought it would be a great opportunity to gain some insight into the pandemic from someone who has had first-hand experience.

And of course, since it’s always a thrill to chat with RJ, we continued on to talk about dirt bikes, adventure bikes, and bandanas!
