Rock ‘n' Roll on a Bike
That’s the motto of Rok Bagoroš, a young motorcyclist from Radenci, Slovenia. Stuntriding is a sport requiring the whole person and complete dedication, which leads to harmony with the iron beast, overflowing with power and aggression. During the long hours of training, Rok is always searching for something “more”, to fine-tune his performance to perfection. His youthful obsession and passion about motorcycles give him no peace – he must always reach towards the impossible.
As a teenager he was winning titles on his scooter, which he bought by himself, selling newspaper and washing dishes, starting a world craze with his videos on Youtube and after gaining the title of the best scooter stunt driver in the world, switching to a motorcycle. When you see his garage, full of bikes and his fan- packed shows, it is hard to imagine that Rok comes from a small town and a loving family, who didn’t always have the means to help him with his dream. That is why Rok has such a strong motivational quality, because he knows how hard you have to work to achieve things on your own.
Combining aggression and elegance in his own style he is, together with his KTM Duke, exploring undiscovered paths of the stunt world. He is combining the thirst for new ideas and perfection of his moves with a craving towards perfection, through which his act becomes a visual harmony and a true rock ‘n’ roll performance on two wheels which can be seen all over the world.
His potential was also discovered by KTM, enabling him to start his professional career on the KTM Duke 125 motorcycle in 2011 and proving to everyone that a “teenie” motorcycle can, with the right rider, become a stuntman’s beast. In 2012 he switched onto the KTM Duke 690, the “urban street fighter” and entered the stunt elite.
He is the only rider among the world’s stuntman elite using a single-cylinder engine motorcycle. Through years of learning his approach evolved into a constant journey of his knowledge and a search for new tricks. Behind the scenes of his seemingly easy and attractive performance one can find hard work and never-ending trainings.
His shows are not only a chance to see his newest tricks, it is an event with special effects, rock music and amazing atmosphere, where a man becomes one with the machine. Rok has a natural entertainer quality and a keen sense for business. He is slowly building his company around his talent, with a garage full of bikes, his own mechanics, photographers and creative team. The name Rok Bagoroš is quickly becoming a brand and maintaining its fans who follow him in countless numbers on social media every day.
Day by day, week by week, the whole year. Always. A true rock star never tires, his performance never ends.
