Multiple-time Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) winner Daniel Milner has reunited with KTM ahead of his high-profile return home for 2024, forming his own program following two seasons in EnduroGP.

Milner, now 32, will be equipped with 450 EXC-F machinery, set to contest the AORC, Australian Four-Day Enduro (A4DE) and Hattah Desert Race next season.

“I’m excited to be back at home in Australia and to be back with KTM,” Milner said. “Before going to Europe I was with KTM for five years, so it’s nice to be home in both ways. I’ll be running my own team with the KTM Group in 2024, so it’s a little bit different to what I was doing when I was on the team run by KTM Australia itself.

“I kind of just had to show up and worry about my riding, whereas this year I’ll be running the team, so that’s pretty exciting for me. Having a good bike underneath me was the main priority and I’ll be riding the KTM 450 EXC-F. It’s a bike that I have enjoyed a lot of success on in the past and now I’m really looking forward to getting things underway for next year.”

The Victorian was exceptional with KTM domestically in a five-year stint between 2017-2021, winning the AORC title outright on three occasions, alongside an assortment of E2 and E3 class championships.

The success of Milner and KTM together also extended to victory in the 2018 A4DE and three Hattah Desert Race wins, in addition to winning the International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) with Team Australia and individually in 2018.
