Daniel Milner and Mason Semmens Ready For Big 2020
KTM Enduro Racing Team will field defending national E2 champion Daniel Milner and E1 class newcomer Mason Semmens in the 2020 Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC).

Milner will pilot the brand new 2020 KTM 450 EXC-F as he defends his AORC E2 crown captured last season, in what will be his fourth-straight season with the factory KTM organisation.

The highly-successful 28-year-old is eager to return to racing after a lengthy off-season, while a positive round of recent testing has strengthened his confidence ahead of the AORC series-opener this month.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm very excited for this season, being my fourth year with the KTM Enduro Racing Team and we‰Ûªre obviously on the new 2020 model this year." Milner commented. "It‰Ûªs a bit of a change this year from the previous bike, but I‰Ûªll still be on the KTM 450 EXC-F and I am confident in the package we have put together for the new season.

"I‰Ûªm ready to go racing, we‰Ûªve done a lot of testing over the summer, and it‰Ûªs been good for me because I didn‰Ûªt go to the International Six Days Enduro [ISDE] last year. Having that time off has fired me up - the pre-season that we‰Ûªve had has been a boost of confidence, that's for sure.‰Û
New to the KTM Enduro Racing Team, 18-year-old Semmens will transition from motocross to make a full-time switch to off-road this year, where he‰Ûªll be equipped with the 2020 KTM 250 SX-F in the E1 category.

The Victorian has participated in a mixture of enduro events in recent years, displaying his potential alongside an impressive haul of motocross and Hattah Desert Race results, including the Under 19s victory last year.

"Coming from motocross to enduro and getting the opportunity to join the KTM Enduro Racing Team is really exciting - it‰Ûªs going to be a massive learning year for me in the AORC and also the A4DE." Semmens said. "I have done quite a few off-road races before and have always raced Hattah, so it‰Ûªs not completely new to me, but it will be an important year in my career and I am grateful for the opportunity.

"It‰Ûªs definitely positive to be teamed up with Daniel Milner - one of the best in the world - and to learn from him, it couldn‰Ûªt be better situation for me.‰Û
