Returning duo Daniel Sanders and Fraser Higlett will form the Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team for 2019, competing within the Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) and Australian Four-Day Enduro (A4DE) events.

At 24 years of age, Sanders experienced an array of success throughout his first season with the team this year, lifting the AORC E2 crown and clinching a commanding maiden victory in the Hattah Desert Race.

The versatile Victorian capped off the year by contributing to Team Australia‰Ûªs incredible World Trophy victory at Chile‰Ûªs International Six Days Enduro (ISDE), along with finishing third in the outright individual results and second in the E3 division.

Next season could see Sanders step up to the Husqvarna FE 501 full-time off-road, that decision to be confirmed.

"I'm definitely excited to be back on-board with the Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team. They were great to be a part of this season and I adapted really well to the four-stroke as well, so it's shaping up to be a strong year in 2019," Sanders said.

Now that we've learned so much together as a team, the plan is to go even better, be super-consistent and right there at the pointy-end. Winning is always the goal, that's the objective of going racing and I'm confident that being part of Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia's factory team with Fraser will provide a great platform to work from, that's for sure.

Impressing in his inaugural appearance at the ISDE, Higlett went on to assist the Australian Junior World Trophy to fifth position, while being ranked ninth in E1 standings.

"It's a good feeling to be with the Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team for 2019, it's just awesome to be a part of and I'm already keen to go racing next year," Higlett enthused.

I was able to learn so much this season and picked up some good results along the way, so now we can take advantage of that experience and aim even higher in terms of results. To be alongside 'Chucky' as teammates is great for me, he's a huge help and so is the entire team, so I'm really happy to be back for another season together.

Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team‰Ûªs first national hit-out of the 2019 season will be at the opening round of the AORC series, scheduled for 9-10 March at Gympie in Queensland.

Next year's A4DE will be staged from 1-4 May at Moruya in New South Wales.
