2021 GASGAS Factory Riders

1 month ago

The time has come to officially announce the 2021 GASGAS team riders in Oz. Here’s the news from GASGAS Australia…

GASGAS Motorcycles is forming a pair of focused race teams in Australia ahead of the 2021 season, marking the exciting new arrival of the brand with factory motocross, supercross, and enduro squads.

We’ve signed youthful combination Aaron Tanti (motocross/supercross) and Mason Semmens (enduro) for the coming year, set to battle it out among the sport’s best at a national level – a first for the GASGAS brand across those categories.

Tanti is transferring into the MX1/SX1 category for the Australian Motocross Championship (ProMX) and Australian Supercross Championship. He will be equipped with the GASGAS MC 450F, benefiting from experience gained in the US at the beginning of 2020 and motivated to make an immediate impact.

Alongside him and equally as eager to showcase his talents in the Australian Off-Road Championship

(AORC) is Semmens, who has learned his craft within the KTM Group family and will lead the GASGAS enduro team on-board a GASGAS EC 250F. He claimed runner-up in E1 as a rookie in the shortened 2020 season.

The landing of GASGAS with in-house factory efforts in Australia comes as a welcome addition, bringing its share of energy both on and off-track while setting the ongoing goal of challenging at the front of the pack. GET ON THE GAS! with GASGAS from 2021.

Brad Hagi, Managing Director KTM Group Oceania: “As we launch this exciting new brand into the market, it pairs perfectly having Aaron and Mason on board to represent us. GASGAS is set to be competitive right out of the gates, but there is also an authentic, grassroots element to the brand that these two young guns represent with their enthusiastic and vibrant personalities. Mason has grown up through the KTM Group ranks and both himself and Aaron are ready to step up and stamp their authority on the Australia racing scene with GASGAS.”

Aaron Tanti, GASGAS Motocross Racing Team: “I’m really looking forward to joining the factory GASGAS team in 2021, it will be a lot of fun being part of the brand and I can’t wait to get on the new MC 450F. I was always aiming to step up to the premier class for next year if I was staying here in Australia, so it’s worked out well to be joining GASGAS in the factory team and having this opportunity. I’ve been putting a lot of effort into my racing for a number of years now, so I look forward to getting things going!”

Mason Semmens, GASGAS Enduro Racing Team: “To be joining GASGAS for 2021 and continuing this journey off-road is super-exciting, I feel like it’s a good fit for me and I know that the bikes will be really competitive from the start. Last season we didn’t get to race as much as we’d hoped in the AORC, but it was a promising opening few rounds that I had and I’ve still been working hard since, so now I have my sights set on what’s to come next and hope to be right there challenging for wins and the title in my class especially.”
