It goes right down to the wire in Anaheim as the AMA Supercross series kicks off…

It’s one of the most thrilling season openers ever as Rockstar Energy Suzuki Racing’s Davi Millsaps took a spectacular victory in the opening round of the AMA/ FIM World Supercross Championship at Angel Stadium in Anaheim! 

Millsaps led from the start of the 20-lap Main Event on Saturday night, but then lost the lead with three laps to go to Honda’s Trey Canard. However, the 23 year old – who last won a Main Event in 2010 – bit back and forced his RM-Z450 back into the lead to take the chequered flag and take the lead in the 17-round series. 


“When Trey Canard passed me I was like ‘Ahhh Man,’ this is like Salt Lake City all over again,” said Davi. “I knew I had a good line though and I just pinned it in the whoops and I got back by him. I don’t think anyone really expected this. It was a new program, bike and team for me. We’ve all been working really hard during the off-season to come out and do the best we can. To see where we are and where we need to be. Even though we won, it’s all building blocks from here. We’ll go back and see how we can make it even better. It’s been like that the whole time. It’s really cool that Rockstar Energy Racing, Bobby Hewitt and Dave Gowland have given me the opportunity and stood behind me. It’s like a family.”
