NR 004: Ricky Johnson, Motocross, Red Bull and the Frozen Rush

Welcome to the Nerve Rush podcast, episode 4.


In this episode, we chat with Red Bull athlete and former motocross superstar, Ricky Johnson.

At 16 years old, Ricky nabbed his professional license. It was 1980.

Over the next 8 years, he became the #1 motocross racer in the world. Due to a debilitating injury at the height of his career, he found out he could no longer race motorcycles. He was only 26 years old.

Today, Ricky’s a Red Bull athlete. He participates in events like the Red Bull Frozen Rush. His son is also a Red Bull athlete. They’re both crushing it.

In this episode, we learn about Ricky’s background and transition from motocross to truck racing.
