CDR Yamaha’s Craig Dack has applauded Daniel Milner’s decision to remain with the team for the 2014 off-road season, despite receiving multiple offers to compete overseas.
Milner raced to victories in the Australian Four-Day Enduro (A4DE) and Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) in CDR Yamaha’s first season of off-road, expanding its iconic operation across from motocross and supercross.
After winning the E2 category of the International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) last month, Milner’s international prospects flourished, however he will defend his titles domestically next year (click here for details).
“Daniel has really matured over the past 12 months, both on and off the bike,” Dack explained. “As an athlete he now understands the commitment it takes to be a professional racer and his results in 2013 certainly prove he has the work ethic.
“His riding has also improved along with his attitude off the track. He is an established and well respected racer in the Australian off-road community and we are proud to have him represent the Yamaha and CDR brands.
“After his success at the ISDE, Daniel was aggressively pursued by race teams from all around the world but elected to stay with us, so we are extremely happy with his decision and his commitment to Yamaha.”
CDR is yet to confirm whether Milner will compete aboard the YZ250F or YZ450F next season, both newly introduced for 2014.
