I feel like Covid-19 has been the rehearsal for a lot of athletes, in any sport, to show them what their lives will look like after they make the decision to retire.

And like most athletes, who find out they’re good at something at a young age, they have been focused on that one particular sport their entire lives to become – the best. You can’t be the best, and be studying full time, or working a 9-5 job, unless you’re just incredibly naturally gifted.

So here we are, 1 year on since the last major event, and Javier Villegas is one of many riders who has found himself wondering what in the world he’s going to do until we can all go back to doing what we want with freedom of travel, riding dirt bikes and having fun!

Thanks to Javier for being so open and candid about what this major change to life is like, and I’m looking forward to catching up again at the next events!

You can find Javier on social media all over the place!  He has plenty of accounts!
