Milner, 22, from Lang Lang (VIC) beat the field by about 53-seconds after seven back-to-back special tests.

“It’s the first time I’ve won both rounds in a weekend, so I’m really happy with that,” Milner said.

“I didn’t have any crashes or anything today, I got through pretty clean.

“I did have a couple of big moments on one of the tracks, though, in the rough whoops.

“The front end tucked under wildly one time, but thankfully I was able to ride out of it without hitting the ground.

“I’m stoked to be on a roll coming into the four day.

“Hopefully I can back up the win… I won the four day Outright for the first time last year.

“From what I’ve heard about Harvey, the tracks will be fast and sandy, so hopefully they will suit me well.

“I would love to bring home my second Australian Enduro Championship in the E1 Class and my second Outright win.”

Milner’s teammate, Stefan Merriman, had his best weekend in the 2013 Yamaha AORC so far, claiming second Outright in round seven and third Outright in today’s round eight.

Merriman, 39, from Nelson Bay (NSW) took the win in the Championship E2 Class both days aboard his WR450F.

“The conditions were very similar to what I ride at home,” Merriman said.

“I felt comfortable and the WR450F was going great. I wasn’t able to keep up with Daniel, but second and third were great results for me.

“Our next major race is the four day coming at Harvey in Western Australia.

“I would like to get a win in my class, that’s my main goal now.”
