American legend Rick Johnson to attend the new VMXdN at the Wiltshire Grand Prix circuit to be held on August 27 -28th 2022.
RJ was the original “bad boy” of the American SoCal scene, having won multiple national and supercross championships as well as many Des Nations appearances for team America, including being in the dream team at Maggiora, Italy in 1986.
He was a factory Yamaha rider in his earlier career but really rose to fame as part of the mighty HRC Honda racing squad in what many consider to be the hey day of the 80s and 90s. In the days of the real superstars of the sport, RJ shone the brightest.
Ricky will be coming with his wife Stephanie and they will be staying with our own national treasure Dave Thorpe on the run up to the event – he will be on hand for autograph and photo opportunities ,as well as having a few cold beers over the weekend.He will of course be riding the legends parade lap.
Pre sale tickets ,camping passes and trade stands for the four day event are available on the event brite website –
There will be entry tickets on sale at the gate but we are expecting the camping availability to fill up early so please bear this in mind and book your places while they’re still available.
