VICTORIA were resounding victors at this year’s Yamaha Australian Four Day Enduro in Wynyard, Tasmania from October 19-24.
Victoria took home the Senior Trophy ahead of a dominant New South Wales, and locals Tasmania who finished third. Victorian team member Daniel Sanders was thrilled about beating NSW to the top step of the podium for the first time in a number of years.
“It was great to beat all the New South Wales riders,” Sanders said. “They have definitely dominated the competition for a while now. I think it’s been since 2004 that Victoria won a Senior Trophy,” Sanders continued.
“NSW had some big names this year but so did we with Milner, Tom Mason, Riley Graham, Peter Boyle, and Chris Davis. We had a strong line-up and got the win in the end and it was great to rub it in them on Saturday night,” he added.
Fellow Victorian team mate and A4DE outright champion for the fourth year in-a-row, Daniel Milner, was also thrilled at beating rivals NSW.
“NSW had a bit of bad luck when one of their riders got lost, but other than that Victoria stayed really strong all week and never made any mistakes and we ended up getting the win, which was pretty special,” Milner said.
Victorian team manager Chris Gray was ecstatic with the win: “It was great to see our Victorian team do so well. We have been in the shadow of high-profile NSW teams for a long time now, but the new up and coming riders from Victoria have proven that they can hold their own.
“There is no way the team couldn’t do it without the supporters that go to help at these events and I want to personally thank every one of them,” Chris added.
