World Trophy Team

In front of a packed-out circuit in Vina del Mar, the Australian World Trophy Team once again brought the fire to their international rivals, producing world class riding to remain well ahead of Team USA by just over seven minutes. Trailing behind USA was Italy, France and Spain, with Spain following behind Australia by just over 21 minutes. After five days of performing a tango with his USA counterpart, Taylor Robert, Daniel Milner maintained his first-place position overall for 2018 by nearly two minutes whilst also being awarded the title as the 2018 E3 Champion! France took out fastest time for day six in the World Trophy Class but could not impact the domination of Team Australia in its bid for the 2018 title. Milner scored the fastest time for Australia in day six of 13:18.84, followed shortly afterward by Daniel Sanders, who clocked in a fastest time of 13:20.73. Based on Sanders’ world class efforts throughout the past six days, he has successfully secured his place on the podium as second place overall, sitting eight seconds behind Team USA’s Taylor Robert, and second place in the E3 category behind Milner.

As a final comment on last weekend - This only happened  for me, because Harlow Rankin nominated me to the Board of Directors. - ( I was told by Ivor Lloyd that they only accept a few of all the ones they get each year) - so a big thanks to Harlow for writing my Motorcycle story.
