Supercross Rider Davi Millsaps announces retirement today.

Supercross Rider Davi Millsaps

Davi Millsaps announced his retirement today through his social media.

In a previous interview Supercross Rider Davi Millsaps mentioned his brain health, and the need to be at a certain status before he continued racing. He also mentions that 2018 would be his retirement year.

At that time he stated that his plan was to get a release from his doctor to come back and race. The retirement announcement shouldn’t come as a big surprise but we hope he continues to stay around the sport.

Millsaps is good people. We’ve enjoyed his talks and what he’s brought to the sport. He’s a family and we are sure he will continue to enjoy his time with them.

As the season goes on we will continue to update you on Millsaps and his continued contributions to the Supercross sport.

Part 1 After 14 years as a professional Supercross and Motocross racer, today, I announce my retirement from racing. Obviously, this was not an easy decision for me to make. Before the crash that I sustained back in October, I felt great while on the bike, and I was looking forward to an awesome 2018 season with my team, Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory Racing. Everything was falling perfectly into place: my training, my fitness, and the bike. I had high expectations for the 2018 Supercross season. Then, the unexpected happened and life changed so fast. I was sent to the ICU with a major concussion, bleeding in and around my brain, and a shattered elbow, along with being bruised and banged up pretty much all over. After months of recovery and consulting with my neurologist and family, we came to the difficult decision that it was time for me to retire from racing. I say this with great sadness, and this is definitely not how I wanted to end my career. But health is a priority. When the doctor told me that he couldn't release me due to the risk that another impact on my head could be life-altering, not to mention life-threatening, it was pretty tough news for me to swallow. The reality of retirement was very hard to face. It brings out a bag of so many mixed emotions. It saddens me greatly to have to go out like this. I have given so much of my life to this sport. I basically grew up on a track chasing my dream.

Alex Martin injury update Supercross Houston

Alex Martin Supercross

Alex Martin sustains fracture after accident at A1

Troy Lee Designs/ KTM rider Alex Martin was injured in Anaheim 1. He sustained a fracture to his right clavicle. The thought was to rest the second round at Houston. This would give him time to rest and return to action in A2. He gave an update on his social media to his fans.

In the last 5 SX season Alex has had four top 10 overall point finishes. In 2016 he was number 2 overall in his outdoor season. He has all the tools to make a good season if he can continue to stay healthy. We are wishing him a speedy return. Hopefully it will be in Anaheim 2.

Eli Tomac announces he will miss Houston Supercross with shoulder injury

Eli Tomac announces that he will not race tonight in Houston’s Supercross Round 2

Tough break for Eli Tomac. He just announced that he will not continue the race today at Houston Supercross round 2. Last week in Anaheim, he came off his bike and injured his shoulder. His shoulder is an injury which has given him trouble over last year. The practice races helped him make the decision today.

It was kind of sketchy and we waited to hear his announcement. His fans are definitely bummed about the news. Its tough because his crash last week really put him behind in the point standings. I’m sure he and his team hoped he could get back on the bike and perform this week. A podium finish would allow him to start making up points quickly.

Eli Tomac is obviously a preseason favorite to win the MEC season. After tonight he definitely has his work cut out for him. He’s shown some time and time again that he can come from behind and win so we don’t count him out for a second. Looking for to a speedy recovery and show of Tomac epicness!!

Hoping a quick return for Dean Wilson

Dean Wilson is good people and we enjoy our interactions with him. Dean’s quick to smile and have yet to see him be anything but cool to his fans.

After not having a defined deal for part of last year, to getting a factory ride, to then killing it at a number of races. We know Dean had high hopes for Saturday in Anaheim. While it was disappointing, we feel confident that Dean will bounce back. He will have some good races this year.

The Rockstar Husqvarna rider is mentally tough and has rounds in front of him to make up some points.
