Sam Rogers Re-signs with Rieju Australia for 2023
Rieju Motorcycles Australia is pleased to announce that Hard Enduro and Trials rider Sam Rogers has re-signed with Rieju Motorcycles Australia for the 2023 season on the Spanish-built Rieju MR 300 Pro!
Sam had some great results in 2022 with Rieju, a brand established in Spain over 80 years ago, and has achieved multiple successes and podiums around the world. Most recently, Rieju successfully competed in the 2023 edition of the Dakar Rally.
“I’m really happy to have signed again with Rieju Motorcycles Australia for another year. The bikes have been phenomenal, and with the support from the Rieju team in Victoria, I couldn’t be happier.
2022 was pretty much a learning year for me, as I came to grips with the MR 300 Pro and many new courses. I travelled across to W.A to compete in the Toodyay Terror and came away with a podium, achieved 5th place at Wildwood Extreme, a personal best for me, plus a host of other events.
This season I have decided to focus more on my progression and developing the bike, with a huge calendar of events to work towards.
Once again a huge thank you to all my sponsors, both current and new for your support.”
Sam has always been very passionate about anything with two wheels, especially off-road motorcycles, and has been riding motorcycles from the age of 5 years old. His father heavily influenced his trials riding career and helped him to achieve an 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 required for 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 to date.
Sam also runs his coaching clinic, ‘Enduro Tech’, where he passes on his years of experience in both Trials & Enduro competitions.
Some of the events that Sam will be competing in 2023 are:
- Wildwood, Victoria
- Selected NSW and QLD events
- Queensland off-road series
- Transmoto Series
