Coming into the new track and tests, Team Australia proved that they are perfectly comfortable on loose and rocky terrain, remaining fastest overall and have in turn launched all three World Trophy riders into the top ten! Milner scored the fastest time for the team in day three, of 43:51.29, which further cements his position on the top of the leader board ahead of Team USA‰Ûªs Taylor Robert. Sanders came in hot on the heals of Milner, with a fastest time of 44:19.10, however due to the efforts of Robert from Team USA, Sanders has moved back to third position overall. Josh Strang rounded out the team‰Ûªs success for day three, with a fastest time of 45:28.48, which means Strang has jumped from 14th to 10th position overall!
Reflecting on making it to the halfway point and the massive success the Australian World Trophy Team has experienced up to now, Strang highlighted; ‰ÛÏToday was another good day. We tackled new tracks that were dustier than the last two days - which I didn‰Ûªt think was possible! I‰Ûªve now moved up to tenth position overall, and the team have moved nearly three and a half minutes into the lead which is fantastic!
‰ÛÏThey also cut one test out today due to so much dust, which was a relief because I couldn‰Ûªt see anything," Strang continued. "One test afterward was super slippery making it a real challenge to push through. But overall it was a good day, I had no crashes, clocked fairly decent times.‰Û
