BTO Sports KTM rider Davi Millsaps has been ruled out of contesting the opening round of the 2016 Australian Supercross Championship due to an ongoing wrist injury sustained in Canada last month.

Scott Bannan, promotor of the two Australian supercross rounds in Queensland, confirmed to that Millsaps will no longer attend the event at Jimboomba next weekend.

“Millsaps hurt his wrist at one of the Canadian rounds,” said Bannan. “He explained to me that he will need to sit out Jimboomba for the injury to recover.”

“I spoke to Yarrive Konsky, and he said Justin Brayton would be coming, so he kind of filled the spot. Brayton is definitely a contender and will be hard to beat.”

Round one of the Australian Supercross Championship will take place at Jimboomba in Queensland on Saturday, 17 September.
