Locals / R.J. Wageman

R.J. was born into the moto family. You can find R.J. most weekends riding and roosting on his buddies at Piru MX located on Highway 126 just down the road from what used to be dirt bike heaven, the Legendary Indian Dunes. His dad, Russ, back in the day was a super fast local pro who did most of his time at the Dunes. R.J.’s roots run deep.

Why do you ride?
Motocross is my love, and it's my life. It puts a smile on my face every chance I get to go ride. It's a great way to get some exercise and stay in great shape to live a healthy life. Making memories that will last a lifetime, talking and laughing with your "moto" buddies. And of course that one feeling few people get to experience, WINNING!
Where do you ride?
Living in the hub of all motocross tracks, my options are endless throughout the week! Glen Helen, Competitive Edge, Cauhilla Creek, Pala, Milestone, Racetown395, Zaca Station, I5, Piru, Perris, and Lucas Oil Mx Park. I've also been to Loretta Lynn's, Freestone, Mammoth, Hangtown, and Ponca City.
When you're not riding, you are...
When I'm not riding, you will find me riding or racing my mountain bike! I'm in love with exercising and can't get enough cardio.
What do you do for a living?
My dad, Russ, owns a motorcycle service, repair, and accessories shop called Pit Pro. I help him out there 2-3 times a week to keep busy and also make a little lunch money.
Who are your heroes?
I look up to my dad, he's been there done that and knows what it takes to get the job done. I look up to all professional athletes, it takes a lot to get to the top level and I know it's not easy. I've been a Travis Pastrana fan for as long as I can remember. All around a bad dude!

Zaca Station MX
Loretta Lynn's amateur national in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. If you want to get your name on the map, that's the place to get it done!
Moto Memory
Winning two motos at the World Mini Grand Prix. Placing 4th in one moto at Loretta Lynn's and finishing 4th overall.
Ride Along! With Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, they will rock your world, it's a must see.
A super big, clean, fat whip! Nothing cooler looking, or better feeling on the bike when you throw her sideways.
