Rouse began riding motorbikes at age of seven on a Malaguti 50, before moving to motocross and he quickly became an accomplished rider and enjoyed a few years of success.
In 2008, he made the switch to circuit racing, competing in the Fab Racing Series, moving into the Aprilia Superteens Championship a year later.

In 2013, Rouse dominated the Triumph Triple Challenge season with 10 wins and numerous top three results, finishing off the podium just twice as he took the title with two races still to go.
Rouse then progressed through the Superstock classes, winning the title in 2020 with the Crowe Performance BMW team.
Rouse reunited with the Crowe Performance BMW team this season, claiming a best result of a top ten finish in Bennetts BSB.
