KTM Enduro Racing Team’s Daniel Milner successfully swept his class in the 2018 Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) at Omeo’s final rounds of the season in Victoria over the weekend, clinching the E3 crown and taking the Outright honours following a dominant campaign.

Milner was once again all-class aboard his KTM 500 EXC-F, topping Saturday’s three-hour Cross Country by over 25 seconds in dry, dusty conditions to clinch the E3 title in a historic result after previously capturing the E1 and E2 championships during his illustrious career.

Sunday’s Sprint round saw Milner round out the 11-round season with another convincing class win, putting forward a controlled performance to lead all five tests and build an advantage of near 20 seconds on combined times.

“It was such a good weekend and I’m really excited to bring home my third AORC championship in both the class and Outright,” said Milner. “I’ve won within all three classes now – E1, E2 and E3 – so that was pretty cool, plus it’s satisfying to clean-sweep the year in E3 and I only lost two rounds Outright.

“I was happy to finish off the season so strongly and I’m absolutely stoked to be able to deliver the results that we have, even though conditions have been so dry and dusty this season,” Milner added. “The track layout this weekend was awesome though, everybody put in a big effort and now I look forward to the ISDE!”

Also capping off a strong season was teammate Lyndon Snodgrass in the E2 division, shining on board the KTM 450 EXC-F. Snodgrass endured a difficult encounter on Saturday for fourth in class, however, bounced back in Sunday’s Sprint to score second in class and third Outright for the round and series.

Milner and Snodgrass will now turn their attention to the 2018 International Six Days Enduro (ISDE), to be contested at Vina del Mar in Chile between November 12-17, where they will form an integral part of Team Australia’s World Trophy squad.
