Daniel Milner has been overwhelmed by winning both the individual outright standings and World Trophy category at the 2018 FIM International Six Day Enduro (ISDE) in Chile.

Assisting the senior team to victory, which consisted of Daniel Sanders (Husqvarna Enduro Racing Team), Josh Strang (Husqvarna) and Lyndon Snodgrass (KTM Enduro Racing Team), Milner established himself atop the outright leaderboard from the early stages, ultimately overcoming American Taylor Robert (KTM Factory Racing) and compatriot Sanders.

“It’s been an awesome six days,” said Milner. “I couldn’t be happier with the riding and my result. Of course, I came here wanting to win but I think the secret has been just worrying about my own riding and not what everyone else has been doing. I have been fully focused on taking each test as it comes and getting through each one fast but clean.

“I eased off a little on day five and actually started making more mistakes. That can be the case sometimes, you need to get yourself into a good rhythm and stick to it. For the team to win the World Trophy again is incredible.

“We knew we would be under a lot of pressure, especially from the USA team, but all the boys have ridden really well and done a great job. Thanks to everyone that got us here, it’s nice to be able to reward them with this result.”

The result is an incredible feat for the KTM Enduro Racing Team rider, capping off a remarkable season that has also included earning the Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) and the Australian Four-Day Enduro (A4DE) crown.
