Raceline KTM Thor press release:
Raceline KTM Thor have signed USA’s Henry Miller to ride in the SX1 class for the remainder of the 2019 Australian Supercross championship.
Miller, at 22 years of age hailing from Minnesota in the Midwest of the United States, has had a solid 2019 season in the AMA Supercross and Motocross championships competing as a privateer. Posting a season best 11th position in the AMA 250 East Coast Supercross round at Indianapolis, along with a 16th in the 450 class at the series finale at Las Vegas, Miller had this to say coming into Wollongong for round three of the Australian Supercross series.
“I’m very excited to be racing here in Australia and I want to thank the Raceline KTM Thor Team for this amazing opportunity. I have always heard good things about the series down under and I jumped at the chance to race over here when I received the call from the team. Coming into the series at round three will not be easy with the my competition already into the swing of things, but I’m confident in my skills and feel very at home on the KTM 450sxf. We tested my race bike today and everything feels great, I can’t wait to go racing at Wollongong”.
Team Manager Chris Woods is enthusiastic for Miller’s debut in the Australian Supercross Series.
“We are thrilled to have Henry signed for the remainder of the season. Although he may be relatively unknown here in Australia, he has shown fantastic speed and results as a privateer in the highly competitive AMA Supercross and Motocross Championships. Our goals for Henry this round are to find his feet with the team and out on the track, but I’m confident he will represent our Team partners well and turn some heads with his results.”
Adding to the teams roster, Miller joins team mates Joshua Osby and Regan Duffy both in the SX2 class. Osby has had a stellar season so far, currently sitting in 2nd position in the SX2 Championship just two points out from the red plate and will be looking to land his first overall win of the season at Wollongong with the Triple Crown format. Regan Duffy continues to impress as a Supercross rookie and comes off a career best sixth position from round two at the Gillman Speedway and will continue to build confidence and experience in the highly competitive SX2 class.
