Daniel Milner has made it back-to-back wins at the 2021 Penrite Hattah Desert Race, marking his third-career victory at the prestigious Victorian event.

The KTM Racing Team rider was dominant from the get-go, topping prologue and the top 10 shootout before going on to capture a 38-second victory in Sunday’s race, completing eight laps in a time of 4h13m17.670s.

It was a highly impressive display from Mason Semmens (GasGas Racing Team), who claimed runner-up honours in his first attempt in the senior ranks, while it was Husqvarna Racing Team’s Callum Norton who locked out the podium.

The top five was completed by Lachlan Terry (KTM) and Liam Mason (KTM) in positions four and five respectively, while the outright top 10 was made up of Riley Graham (Yamaha), Alex Bolton (KTM), Cooper Sheidow (KTM), Samuel Pretscherer (KTM), and Hunter Semmens (KTM).

The Ladies eight-lap category was taken out by Honda-mounted Emma Milesevic, followed by Madison Brown (Yamaha) and Danielle Foot (Husqvarna).
