HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – Muscle Milk/Toyota/JGRMX rider Davi Millsaps continues to recover from knee surgery performed on July 26 to repair a meniscal tear.  Millsaps injured the knee during the second moto at Red Bud Track and Trail on July 2.  Millsaps condition and ability to resume riding will be evaluated on an ongoing basis.  During his recovery, Les Smith, who previously filled in for Justin Brayton while he was injured will substitute for Millsaps until he is cleared to return.

Smith, 20, is a decorated multi-time amateur national champion who lives and trains in South Carolina not far from the JGRMX headquarters and test facility.  Smith’s proximity and work ethic make him an easy choice when the team needs the services of a professional substitute rider.

Smith and Brayton will be on the gate for round nine of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship this Saturday, Aug. 13 at Unadilla Sports Valley in New Berlin, N.Y.  The first moto will be broadcast live on allisports.com and Fuel TV at 12:30 p.m. (EST).  The second moto will air live on NBC at 3:00 p.m. (EST).
