CDR Yamaha’s Daniel Milner will use his second place podium position at Archerfield Speedway’s opening round as a platform to build upon in the KTM Enduro-X Nationals.

The current Australian Off-Road Champion rode the factory-supported YZ250F to the runner-up position behind incoming teammate Chris Hollis, a picture of consistency with 4-1-2 results across the three finals.

“Finishing on the podium is always the goal of any rider at the opening round of the season, so it’s good to hit that mark and put myself in championship contention,” Milner reflected.

“It’s only a short championship held over three rounds, so no rider can afford to make a mistake and have any hope of winning.

“It was good fun out there and I had some good battles with Chris. He got the win today and deserves his result but I look forward to racing with him again and next time going one better.”

The result sees Milner now just four points in arrears of Hollis in the standings as the series’ second round shapes up for Valvoline Raceway in Parramatta, NSW, on 15 February.
