Milner Returns to CDR Yamaha for A4DE

6 Oct 2015

World number two and former multi-time Australian Off Road champion, Daniel Milner, will return to Australia in the coming weeks to compete at the prestigious Australian Four Day Enduro (A4DE) with the CDR Yamaha team.

Milner, who has been based in the US for the past 12 months racing for the Randy Hawkins managed, Am-Pro Yamaha team, is set to take the A4DE by storm and look to make it four consecutive victories after his success in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

And he lands in Australia in good form after coming off his magnificent second place finish in the International Six Day Event in Slovakia. Milner went bar to bar with US rider Ryan Sipes in a six day duel that will long be remembered in which he eventually finished second and was part of the Trophy and the Yamaha manufacturer teams which also finished second.

It will be a reunion of sorts with Milner hooking up with his old CDR Yamaha team who will take care of his bike and all the technical duties while here in Australia and both hope to relive the success of previous years.

“I’m really excited about coming home to see all my friends and family and it also coincides with the A4DE in Tasmania so the timing couldn’t be better,” Milner enthuses. “The A4DE has always been a favourite event of mine and even when discussing my contract in the US, it was an event I wanted to be a part of and it’s great that my US team, Am-Pro Yamaha and CDR Yamaha have been able to work together to make this happen.

“CDR Yamaha have again stepped up to help me and it will be awesome working with Craig and the team again. I have great memories and plenty of race wins because of them so it will be good to get among the crew again and have some fun times,” Milner ends.

Joining Milner will be usual CDR Yamaha off road racer, Chris Hollis. After an injury interrupted season, Hollis has hit his stride at the right time of the year and stormed home in the final rounds of the AORC and climbed all the way back to third outright despite missing two rounds.

“The A4DE is a great event and riding in Tasmania is always good as the conditions are usually near perfect,” Hollis explains. “Having Dan back is also good as we both get on so well and it makes for a great atmosphere both on and off the trail.”

Both riders will compete on the Yamaha YZ450F and be chasing outright and E2 class success.

“We look forward to assisting Daniel in his return to Australia and together with Chris they make a great team,” team owner, Craig Dack said. “The A4DE is the highest profile event in the off road calendar and with Daniel and Chris behind the bars, I feel we have another great opportunity to succeed in the challenging event.”

Action gets underway at Wynyard in Tasmania on October 19 and runs until the 25th.
