Day three was characterised with perfect weather conditions and the spectacular layout of the seven tests that challenged the riders once again. 

201 out of the 242 riders started this morning at Parc Ferme and went over to the KTM Cross Test, “The Woky” Cross Test and the Pilot Air Enduro Test. 

CDR Yamaha's Daniel Milner has maintained his outright lead after day three of the 2013 Harvey Fresh Australian Four Day (A4DE) and enters the final day with a one minute and five second lead over Motorex KTM's Chris Hollis. 

Milner once again had a consistent day, winning four of the first five tests, building a 3 second lead over Husqvarna'sMatthew Phillips. But it was the final test of the three that proved to be the big turning point of this years event. 

Hollis won the final of seven tests for the day by just over 12 second from Milner, while Phillips who had been in contention for the outright win from the start of this years event finished the test in 12th position after a big crash, losing 27 seconds to Hollis and also 15 seconds to event leader, Milner. 

“So far, we have had three different sorts of terrains in three days." Phillips explained at day's end. " I felt good. Few mistakes here and there and a few crashes.. 

"Racing was great between Daniel, Chris and I. It kept me on my toes all day. I went down really hard in the last test, but the race isn’t over yet. Still have one more day and we are just going to hit it as hard as we can tomorrow. Hope that I can go fast enough to grab the title," he added. 

Phillips hopes of outright victory were further damaged when he received a two minute time penalty for the day, relegating him back to third place outright, just under 2 minutes and 33 second behind Milner with just one timed test to run on the final day.

Glenn Kearney continues to sit in fourth place outright, 1 minute and 20 seconds behind Phillips, while Active8 Yamaha rider, Josh Green holds town 5th, 34second further back. 

Green however is coming under pressure from both his team mate, Tom McCormack, CDR Yamaha's Sterfan Merriman and Husqvarna's Lochlan Stanford with 5th through to 9th separated by less than 1 minute. 

Motorex KTM's Ben Burrell rounds out the top ten outright heading in to the final Motocross test tomorrow. 

Tomorrow's final Motocross test will see riders separated in to their respective classes and line up in full gates of 40 riders, with each riders total motocross race time being added to their current overall time from the initial 22 tests. 

In the case were there are more than 40 riders in a class, riders will be split in to gates of 40 riders determined by their current class standings. 

The order of events will see the Masters (Vets 45+) race first, followed by the Veterans (35+) class and the Women. The E1 class riders will be the next group to front the start gate which will include race leader Milner. 

Milner will then have and anxious wait as both Hollis and Phillips line up in the following group of E2 class races. The Big Bore E3 class riders will then concluded the 2013 event.
