Getting on a bike for the first time at the age of 3, it's no wonder why Davi Millsaps is one of the most accomplished riders in his class. A 9-time AMA National Amateur Champion, Millsaps swept up as a rookie before turning pro in 2005. Having a breakout performance early on in his pro career, Millsaps won the AMA Supercross Lites East Coast Championships in 2006 before moving forward on a CRF450R, where he took third overall in the 450 class.
Hindered by injuries shortly after, Millsaps was sidelined in 2007 with a broken femur, followed by a separated shoulder in 2008. Coming back strong for the 2009 Supercross season, Millsaps performed well at Hangtown and at Supercross stops before becoming hurt once again.
Fast forwarding to 2010, Millsaps captured his first win since 2008, winning the 450 Supercross race in San Diego.
Riding for team Rockstar Suzuki in the 450 class for 2013, Millsaps has been collecting Supercross podium finishes since his opening round victory at Anaheim. Holding the redplate since the season opener, 2013 looks to be the best year yet for The Duke.
