Rested Millsaps Ready for 2011 Supercross

2011 AMA Supercross

With a new team and a clean bill of health, Davi Millsaps is ready to stage a run at the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, title.

Millsaps will be racing under the direction of Team Manager Jeremy Albrecht and the Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX Honda team. The 2011 season marks the fifth year Millsaps has been competing in the premier AMA Supercross class.

Earlier this summer during the fourth race of the 2010 AMA Motocross Championship, Millsaps suffered a frightening crash on the Honda CRF450R which required an air medic response team to fly him to a local primary care facility.

In the end, Millsaps suffered damage to his kidney, a broken thumb, several broken ribs, and a bruised lung. After a long recovery, he is fully rested and ready to be in contention for the 2011 AMA Supercross title on the Honda.

Davi Millsaps says: “For the upcoming season I need to train hard and ride hard and see where it takes me. Hopefully I can put my head down and focus on what I need to do to be where I need to be.”

Millsaps joins the Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX Honda team following five years of seat time on a Factory Honda. Since joining the pro ranks in 2004, Millsaps has earned one Eastern Regional AMA Supercross Lites title along with 10 career wins and an additional 19 podium finishes over seven years.

In 2010, Millsaps posted a career-best third overall in the premier AMA Supercross class, complimented by four podium finishes and one win aboard the Honda.

Davi Millsaps says: “It’s going to be really good, competitive racing this year. There are a lot solid riders coming up, so I’m looking forward to it because it really shows where you stand. It’s going to be a good year especially with everybody coming back from injuries. I just need to make sure I buckle down and do my best.”

The 2011 Monster Energy Supercross season kicks off Jan. 8 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
