Ketchum, ID, December 21, 2009 — SCOTT USA is pleased to announce that Factory Honda's, Davi Millsaps, has joined the SCOTT team. Millsaps will represent SCOTT for MX apparel and goggles during the 2010 supercross and outdoor season. "Davi's talent, ability and commitment to the sport are exactly what we were looking for. He has proven what it takes to be a champion and we're pleased to be apart of his efforts in 2010," said Tallon Vohland, SCOTT pro racing manager.
"I am really excited to join the SCOTT team. I've always known SCOTT goggles to be the best performing goggles out there and have been very pleased with the apparel," states Millsaps.
Millsaps returned to racing action after a 2 month break following the US Open in Las Vegas. This time, in Australia, Davi would be sporting his new Scott gear and goggles. Davi immediately came out swinging and was in the top 3 fastest in both practice sessions. The finals were comprised of three seven-lap races with five minutes in between, and the winners were decided by totaling their points – 20 points for first back to one point for 20th. Davi had less than stellar start in the first race, ending up an eventual 4th. That would be the only setback for Davi all weekend, as he would get it together quickly for the next 2 races. In the second race, Scott athlete Chad Reed would get out to a great start with Davi close in second. Davi was able to pressure Chad most of the race but had to settle into 2nd place behind the champ. The final race had a bit more excitement when the skies opened up. Luckily for Reedy and Davi, their Scott goggles were rain ready. Reed would eventually take the lead and Davi would end up second again, good enough for a 2nd overall!!
