Oleg Kurguskin (Russian: Кургускин, Олег Анатольевич; born 11 April 1966, in Elista)[1] is a Russian motorcycle speedway rider who was a member of Russia team at 2001 and 2005 Speedway World Cup. With Russian club Togliatti he won European Club Champions' Cup in 2003.

Kurguskin was a stand out rider when he was part of the first ever Russian team (still under the Soviet Union flag) to tour Australia in 1990/91. While the team (which included Kurguskin, Rene Aas, Michaił Starostin, Rinat Mardanshin, Rif Saitgareev, Vladimir Trofimov, Viktor Gajdym, Andrei Korolov and Grigori Kharchenko) did not compete in a test against the Australians, they did win most of their matches around the country and won new fans with their professionalism and the way they adapted to the Australian culture.
