MX Vice is deeply saddened to learn that Joel Robert has passed away, following a fight with coronavirus. The six-time world champion (1964, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971 and 1972) was just 77 years old. Robert had a massive impact on motocross in his native Belgium, as well as outside of those borders, and that impact will undoubtedly be felt for many years to come.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
