Paul Opolka a été le tout premier coureur d'Allemagne a être licencié pour participer à une course de vélos électriques. Sa passion pour le motocross a débuté dès l'âge de 2 ans. Ayant grandi à quelques pas seulement d'un circuit de motocross, Paul a passé chaque minute de sa vie à observer les coureurs. Dès l'âge de 5 ans, il obtient son premier vélo MX et apprend à conduire sur le Kuberg X-Force Pro50 l'année suivante.
Son modèle est le Champion allemand de Supercross, Ken Roczen, qui a grandi près de chez ses grands-parents. Dès que Paul leur rendait visite, il en profitait pour s'entraîner sur le circuit de motocross de Roczen, à Apolda. Le plus grand rêve de Paul serait de rencontrer Roczen en personne et de lui montrer son vélo électrique.
Paul aimerait se faire remarquer cette année lors de la compétition allemande de motocross, grâce à son Kuberg X-Force Pro50.
Logan Bennett est monté à vélo pour la première fois à 3 ans et demi, et il est la preuve vivante que l'entraînement et les efforts payent toujours. Ses débuts dans la course remontent à 2014 lors de la Yamaha PW50, où il a terminé en 26ème position.
En 2015, Logan s'est servi ce qu'il a appris de sa première année de course, l'a adapté à un KTM SX50 de plus grande taille et a terminé 6ème lors des différentes courses organisées par les clubs de motocross de Ringwood et Poole & Parkstone.
Depuis, Logan n'a de cesse d'évoluer sur les circuits. L'une de ses plus grandes victoires a été sa participation à la course Auto Youth Challenge, organisée cette année par le Club de Motocross de Ringwood, où il a fini 2ème.
Il est déterminé à se hisser sur la plus haute marche du podium lors de sa prochaine course, à bord de son Kuberg X-Force Pro50. Il déclare d'ailleurs, au sujet de son X-Force Pro50 :"Il va super vite et j'adore ça. Il est encore mieux que mon KTM".
Although Leon is only 6 years old, he’s already been racing for 2 years. At age 5, he won his first Cornish Oset Cup. He has held the title since, competing on the Kuberg Trial E Hero to capture his second championship.
In 2017, Leon had some terrific results, finishing 4th in the Youth D South West Trials Championship and finished runner-up in the Welsh Championship. He’s been competing on tough courses that even adults struggle with. He plans on competing in more Youth D rounds in 2018.
Leon also competed at the GP World Trials held in Tong, where he came in 3rd place. Young Thomas has his sights set on the prize in 2018, as he looks forward to setting the world on fire with his new Kuberg Trial E Hero.
Leon has exceeded all expectations after being part of the Elec-trick Blitz Motocross coaching scheme. In September 2017, Leon competed in his first ever motocross race on the Kuberg X-Force Pro50 and cracked the Top Ten with his 10th place finish.
With a stacked calendar in 2018, Leon will be competing in select regional motocross races alongside his main focus in the trials competitions.
Kieran started riding very early in life. He had his own YCF-50 by the age of 4. After practising for a couple of years, a friend encouraged him to start racing Enduros. In April of 2016, Kieran participated in his first race at the age of 6. He reached the second round of the Enduroland Race XC Series, finishing 5th overall.
In his first season, he scored a 3rd place victory and finished 5th overall in the Auto Class. In the 2017 Enduroland Championship, he went one better by finishing 4th overall in the Championship, plus a career best 2nd place finish during the fourth round.
Kieran is looking forward to 2018, where he will be the first ever youth rider to compete in Enduro and Enduro Cross Events on the Kuberg X-Force PRO 50. Kieran plans on putting his Kuberg on the top step of the podium during the Putoline Enduroland XC Youth Auto Championship.
Samuel Green has been crazy about bikes ever since he was a baby. He got his first running bike at just 1 ½ years old and his first electric bike before the age of 3. At the age of 4, he got his first Kuberg E-Trail bike. He loves to ride together with his mother and father. Samuel is currently racing on X-Force Pro 50 and is looking forward to scoring some victories in this year’s Junior Enduro Cup.
Here are a few of his accomplishments:
Dexter Prowse first started riding an MX bike at the age of 3. Dexter was granted an early MCF license at age 5 by submitting video footage of his riding skills to the federation. His first race was at the Wiltshire Cusses Gorse MX where he finished all three races while barely able to touch the ground.
Not liking the weight and noise of his first gas bike, he traded it for an electric Kuberg bike and hasn’t looked back ever since. After seeing Dexter test the X-Force Pro 50, his father stated, "I was blown away with the bikes and just how much torque they produce. The X-Force Pro50 is something else and I’m looking forward to see Dexter develop with the team in 2018."
Dexter plans to continue to compete on his Kuberg for all rounds of the Portsmouth & Ringwood Youth Auto Motocross Championship in 2018, as well as other selected national rounds.
