RIEJU AUSTRALIA SIGNS DYNAMIC DUO
SIGNS DYNAMIC DUO
Established 80 years ago, the renowned Spanish brand has been achieving podiums overseas during recent times, and we look to bring this success to Australia in the near future.
Sam has always been very passionate about anything with two wheels, especially off-road motorcycles, and has been riding motorcycles from just 5 years of age. His father heavily influenced his trials riding career and helped him to achieve A-Grade level.
His skill, technique and ability in Trials made it easy for him to transition into the Hard Enduro scene, which led to him competing in numerous events up and down the east coast of Australia. Trials is a tough and precise discipline that demands exceptional balance and bike control, which taught him all the skills and techniques needed for the technical demands of Hard Enduro. Sam started competing in Hard Enduro at the end of 2018. This was a huge eye opener for him, being thrown in at the deep end with more well known and experienced riders, including some of the world’s best at the 2018 Wildwood Rock Extreme Enduro.
Sam has achieved ‘Gold’ class finishes in virtually every event that he has competed in to date. This year, Sam has decided to coach and bring young-gun ‘Hunter King’ under his wing. Hunter has also been quite a successful rider in his own right, competing in not only Hard Enduro and Trials, but also Motocross! Sam also runs his own coaching clinics, ‘Enduro Tech’, where he passes on his years of experience in both Trials & Enduro competition.
Some of the events that Sam & Hunter anticipate competing in 2022 are:
- Grassroots Series
- Wildwood, Victoria
- Selected NSW and QLD events
- Queensland off-road series
“I am stoked to be a part of the Rieju team! I’ve gelled really well with the bikes as they are set up perfectly to suit my style of riding. I can’t believe how good these bikes are straight out of the crate! I can’t wait to get racing! Bring on the rest of 2022 and beyond!” – Sam Rogers.
“I’m super excited to be part of the Rieju Australia team led by Sam Rogers. I am extremely grateful to get to ride in this team and with such a historic brand. Riding the Rieju MR 300 Pro is amazing! The bike looks stunning, feels light and has incredibly responsive power. I cannot wait to compete in some race events over the coming months.” – Hunter King.
