National Motocross Champion Lee Hogan shares skills in Esperance

Esperance Motorcycle Club have extended thanks to the Shire of Esperance for their generosity, helping the club to host national motocross champion Lee Hogan.

Mr Hogan is an 11 times National Motocross Champion with more than 20 years of racing experience at both a national and an international level.

The experienced rider started the coaching program in 2003, with a desire to build a coaching clinic that caters for the majority of riding capabilities.

Mr Hogan and his crew run around 100 schools a year nationally, personally coaching some of Australia's biggest talents including Matt Phillips and Kade Mosig. 

Twenty-five young riders and their parents, members of the EMCC, took part in the riding school to gain valuable skills and knowledge. 

The event’s main objectives were for new riders to learn safe riding and racing skills, and to encourage new members to participate in motocross sport in a controlled and safe environment.

According to Esperance Motorcycle Club, organisers and participants were happy with the achieved outcome. 

The Club were able to host the clinic after the Esperance Shire contributed funding through the Community Grants Program to assist with the costs.
