Vanessa Ruck is a 36 year old female motorcycle rider, racer and adventure from the UK. Her riding journey started following a life changing cycling accident in 2014 that resulted in two reconstructive body parts and 7 surgeries. Motorcycles have become her new form of adventure and freedom, but as someone living with ongoing pain from her accident, she’s also determined not to let her past control her future. Fighting on and proving that anything is possible if you work hard enough. As a motivational speaker and keen sharer of the highs and lows of life across social media, Vanessa works to inspire people across the globe.
Vanessa is at home on a huge array of motorcycle types, terrains and has ridden in over 27 countries in just a short few years. From hard enduro to trials, rally to adv, cruising to track. Vanessa is a force to reckon with! The team at Desert Rose wish her every success in all of her endeavours, adventures and races.
Vanessa is back in the desert in April, taking on the tough Morocco Desert Challenge, with support from Desert Rose Racing.
