Daniel Milner has gone back to back winning his second consecutive Australian Four Day Enduro as the fourth and final day wrapped up in Harvey, WA. 

On board his factory CDR Yamaha YZ250F, Milner overcome an intense battle across the four days to win with a comfortable one minute margin after the final motocross test was completed today. His outright victory was hand in hand with his class victory in the E1 division. 

“I’m so happy right now,” Milner shouted not long after the finish of the event. “It was a real battle for the whole event as there were a lot of top quality riders here and I had to be at my best the whole week to get the win. 

“I put in a huge effort on day three to really get a bit of a break so it didn’t come down to a winner take all fight in the final motocross test. I was able to win most of the tests and get a gap on the guys so I felt really good coming into today and I just had to use my head and not do anything stupid," he concluded. 

It was also an impressive win for the CDR Yamaha team in their first year competing on the Off-Road Circuit. While CDR have had plenty of success in the Motocross scene over the past 20 years, owner, Craig Dack, a former four time Mr. Motocross champion himself has been relishing his new role overseeing the his new off road team and came away from the event impressed with what he saw. 

“I have to admit I have a new found respect for the riders in an event like this. Their ability to read the terrain, overcome four days of racing and keep wanting more is amazing and I really admire their dedication and determination." Dack stated. 

“This is a great moment for CDR Yamaha as well. We are new to the off road world and to win the A4DE in our first attempt is special and it means a lot to myself and everyone in the team. 

“I’m really proud of what Daniel has achieved so far this year and the win he just adds to that. In the time we have worked with him, he has become a true professional and matured enormously on and off the track. He has been a delight to work with and we look to more championship success with him in the future," Dack added.

Finishing on the second step of the podium was Motorex KTM's Chris Hollis who put in consistent results all week and fell just over a minute short of capturing the overall win. Hollis was rewarded though with the E3 class win. 


Rounding out the podium was Husqvarna's Matthew Phillips. After being in contention for the first two and half days, a tough final stage on day three combined with a trail penalty pushed the world Enduro Championship contender out of contention heading into the final test on day four. 

Phillips was able to finish the event off on a high, winning the final motocross test. 

It was also a successful four days for the Active8 Yamalube Yamaha team with Josh Green pushing through finish in fourth place outright and also stood on the third step of the podium in the highly competitive E3 class. Tom McCormackgave the team more reason to celebrate finishing 5th outright and also giving Yamaha a 1-2 in the E1 class. 

Carlton Dry Honda backed rider Peter Boyle finished the event in 6th place outright and also secured the final step on the E1 podium. Husqvarna's Lachlan Stanford who pipped CDR Yamaha's Stefan Merriman for 7th by less than one tenth of a second. 

Motorex KTM's Ben Burrell and HSE KTM's Ben Grabham rounded out the top ten in 9th and 10th respectivley. Grabham also took the overall honours in the E3 class, followed Husaberg's Geoff Braico in second and Yamaha Privateer Stefan Granquist in third 

Yamaha rider Emelie Karlsson won the Women's class from Ballard's Sherco backed rider Jessica Gardiner in Second and Jemma Wilson in third. Damian Smith beat Kirk Hutton for the win in the 35+ class, with Adam Riemann completing the top three.
