Ryan Villopoto on the Swapmoto Podcast


Ryan Villopoto on the Swapmoto Podcast

You’d think that a retired racer would do his best to enjoy a life of leisure after leaving the non-stop travel and hustle and bustle of professional motocross and Supercross, but these days it seems as if Ryan Villopoto remains as busy as he’s ever been. Since joining forced with Yamaha, RV has been having more fun than ever, racing selected events, joining the press on media junkets, playing around on pit bikes…you name it and he’s doing it! We visited RV in his Newport Beach home earlier this week to catch up on everything he’s got going on, plus dad life, mini bikes, vans, and more!

If you’ve always been a Ryan Villopoto fan, you’ll love this one. If you’re not a fan; give it a listen…he’ll win you over.

    I’d like to see you guys post more about some of the up and coming riders so that we can know what is going on with the future of the sport. Although I do really enjoy how you guys don’t post results spoilers because if I’m racing on a weekend I don’t have time to watch the pros. It is nice to be able to watch the race before someone spoils it.
