Fantic rider to get further scans throughout the week on wrist.
EnduroGP newcomer Daniel Milner was injured at round six of the 2022 EnduroGP World Championship in Hungary and is set to get further scans on a broken wrist throughout the week.
The Fantic rider finished day one in Zalaegerszeg third in Enduro1 (E1), before disaster struck in stage two, bringing a halt to Milner’s charge.
“Seems to be one step forward and two steps back this season, from mechanicals to now broken bones,” Milner shared. “Unfortunately yesterday I fractured a bone in my wrist/hand in the first enduro test. Charged into a corner and hit a braking bump that was deeper than I thought, breaking my wrist on impact and causing my hand to blow off the bars.
“I tried to continue with the lap telling myself that there was no way I have done anything bad from just that, but unfortunately had no strength to hold on.
“I knew it was time to finish my day early after I collapsed onto my bars on the tyres in the extreme test, causing me to have a decent crash. I will get some more scans this week to find out more as the translation in a dodgy little hospital wasn’t all that good. Thanks to everyone for supporting me and keeping me going.”
Milner reignited his international career this season with Fantic Motor following his off-road racing success after his return to Australia in 2017.
The multi-time off-road champion commenced this year’s EnduroGP competing in E2 on 450cc machinery, before making the switch to E1 on a 250 from the third round in Italy. He scored a podium in class at the Italian GP and notched a breakthrough outright EnduroGP podium at round four in Portugal when he was third on day one.
