Daniel Milner and Lyndon Snodgrass Join KTM Enduro Racing
KTM Australia have confiremd that four-time A4DE Champion Daniel Milner and exciting up-and-comer Lyndon Snodgrass will join the KTM Enduro Racing Team for season 2017.

The KTM Enduro Racing Team‰Ûªs brand new Team Manager Glenn Kearney has announced that the pair will contest the Australian Off-Road Championships, the A4DE and Hattah Desert race in 2017, as well as selected other events.

‰ÛÏI'm really excited to have the team locked in and all sorted before the New Year comes." Kearney said. "We are looking to do big things with Daniel and bringing in Lyndon Snodgrass is pretty exciting, to have that younger element in the team that we can try and nurture and mentor him along a little bit.

"He‰Ûªs a young guy that's super keen and prepared to put in the hard yards to make things happen, and he's got some amazing speed in the muddy conditions and the sand so we‰Ûªll be looking to help him improve himself on certain surfaces that he may have lacked in.

"But I think it‰Ûªs a good combination and it should bring a nice dynamic to the team, having that aggressive, win-at-all-costs attitude that Milner brings, and then a young guy that's keen and eager to learn, it should be a good balance. I'm really excited to work with the both of them.

"I pursued Milner pretty heavily, he was a guy that I wanted to work with, and I believe he wanted to work with me as well. So it's exciting looking to the future.‰Û

His teammate, Lyndon Snodgrass is one of the most exciting young competitors on the radar, having scored outright podium finishes in this year's AORC, and taken a well-deserved podium in the E3 category of this year's A4DE just a month ago.

The fact that Snodgrass achieved these milestones at the age of 18 has flagged him as a rider to watch for the future.

Snodgrass rode a 300cc two-stroke with great effect this year, but it is not yet certain which category he will contest in 2017.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs awesome to get this opportunity." Snodgrass enthused. "I can't wait to get out there and work with the team next year.

"It‰Ûªs been in the works for a while, so it‰Ûªs good to finally get it happening. KTM has had a lot of dominance in the off-road scene with Chucky, Tye and Toby, so it's definitely a great team and I'm excited to be a part of it.

"I'm looking forward to working more closely with Glenn, he's got a lot of knowledge and I get along well with Dan Milner too, so to have him as a teammate is pretty cool.We haven't nailed down what bike I will be riding yet, but I'm sure we'll have that worked out early next year.

"I've made some big improvements this year and I want to continue to do so next year, and being on this team will make that a lot easier. I like doing well and it's great that I‰Ûªve been able to better myself this year. Now I want to keep building until one day hopefully we are at the top.

KTM Australia‰Ûªs desert racing team and support rider network will be announced at a future date.

‰ÛÏObviously with Chucky leaving it left a pretty big hole for us to fill, so it's exciting news that we have signed Daniel." KTM General Manager Jeff Leisk commented. "As a company, we are really thrilled about the fact that both Toby and Chucky have gone on to bigger and better things.

"Daniel (Milner) had hoped that his American ride would lead to the WEC in Europe, but that never eventuated, and for next year he has become available to ride in Australia. At the same time I think he has always wanted to come on board with us but the timing has never been quite there. This time around though, the stars have aligned and we have a spot for him and the budget for him. I think he will be very happy on a KTM.

"I think is really going to enjoy the product and all the support that goes along with it, and I think we can put together a really good environment for him, particularly with Glenn on board.

"We don't know for sure what he will be riding yet, whether it's a 350, or a 450, or a 500. I suppose that's the beauty of our brand is that we can confuse the hell out of you, because there are so many different bikes in the range that you can actually win on.‰Û
