Davi Millsaps Earns his First Podium of the Year in San Francisco

San Francisco, California – January 28, 2008 – Red Bull Honda Team Rider Davi Millsaps earned his first podium position of the 2008 season at the rain-soaked San Francisco Supercross race in front of a crowd of 37,322 fans.

After being so close all season, Red Bull Honda Team Rider Davi Millsaps finally earned his first podium position this weekend by riding to a 3rd place finish in San Francisco.  After leading for a good portion of the race, Davi was thrown off his line due to the mud soaked track just before going off a jump, forcing him off the track and off his bike and putting him a few spots down.  Nevertheless, Davi was able to battle back and work his way back into 3rd as the checkered flag dropped.  Accustomed to running up front, Millsaps has had to overcome a couple of freak circumstances, including a flying hay bale, before finally reaching the box this season.  “Its taken me longer to get on the podium this season then I had anticipated but it’s a big treat to finally be here.  Hopefully this will be the start of many trips back to the box” said the energetic 19 year old former Supercross Lites Champion.  Davi is looking forward to building off this momentum as the series returns to Anaheim this weekend.    

Davi Millsaps would like to thank his sponsors:  American Honda, No Fear, Red Bull, Alpinestars, Oakley Goggles and Arai Helmets.
