Danile Milner, Todd Waters and Mason Semmens have won all before them at the opening two rounds of the 2021 Yamaha Australian Off Road Championship held at Golden Beach, Victoria over the weekend.

Multi time champion, Milner, set the tone for the weekend in the E3 class, taking opening day honours aboard his KTM 500 EXC-F, by just under five minutes ahead of Sherco's Jonte Reynders with Tom McCormack making a succesful return to racing taking the final spot on the podium, with the top three repeating the performance on Sunday, with Milner once again leading home Reynders and McCormack.

In the E2 class the current (2019) Australian MX1 motocross champion, Todd Waters lead the Husqvarna factory team to victory, leading home a pair of Yamaha's on both days as Josh Green and Michael Driscoll rounded out the top three on both Saturday and Sunday.

GASGAS Australia's Mason Semmens gave his new team a perfect start on the national stage, following the footsteps of Milner and Waters by taking the win for both rounds 1 and 2. Like both the E3 and E2 classes, the top three in the E1 class was unchanged from Saturday to Sunday, with Kyron Bacon coming home in second and Shop Yamaha's Luke Styke in third.

‰ÛÏThe weekend was tough, both physically and mentally, but I‰Ûªm really happy with my performance." Semmens commented.

"Having not raced for more than a year, there were nerves entering Golden Beach and I hada crash in the first Sprint, but still managed to win yesterday. I felt a lot more comfortable today and I think that showed in my riding.

"The GASGAS EC 250F was awesome all weekend, the motor was amazing in the deep sand and the suspension set-up we had was perfect. I couldn‰Ûªt have asked for a better return to racing!‰Û
