Davi Millsaps has switched from Honda to JGRMX Yamaha for 2011.

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 the Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX next season, the fifth year Millsaps has been competing in the premier AMA Supercross class.

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

Earlier this summer during the fourth race of the 2010 AMA Motocross championships, Millsaps suffered a frightening crash 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.

Millsaps joins Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX 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.

Fully rested for the 2011 season, Millsaps will be accompanying Justin Brayton on the Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX team.

“It’s going to be really good, competitive racing this year,” added Millsaps. “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 January 8 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California.
