AUSSIE SECOND OVERALL AT SIX-DAY

Australian Enduro star Daniel Milner, who rides for the CDR Yamaha team, has made a big impression on the off-road racing world by winning his class (E2 for 450cc 4-strokes)
and finishing second overall at this year's International Six Day Enduro (ISDE) on the Italian island of Sardinia.

This year's was the 88th Six-Day with over 630 riders from 36 countries making the trip to the Mediterranean island and 21-year-old Victorian Milner one of the stars of the end-of-Sept/beginning-of-Oct event.

He finished the first day as the class and overall leader, went back to second in class on Day 2 but won again on Day 3. Two more consistent days in the top five saw Milner enter the final day with not only a chance to take the class win, but also the outright victory.
Unfortunately, it wasn't to be and a 20th place finish on the final day gave him second outright but he maintained his lead in the E2 class and was crowned the division winner when racing was completed.
"I have had a great time over here and the conditions were a bit dry and dusty so it was like racing in Australia," he said. "The YZ450F," he continued, "has been perfect all week and I just love riding it."
Milner was also part of an Australian team that finished fourth out of the 20 nations entered for national competition.
This year's Six-Day was won by KTM rider Antoine Meo from Milner and Frenchman Pierre Renet on a Husaberg.
