Rumored on Twitter and message boards and confirmed yesterday by Cycle News, veteran rider Davi Millsaps may miss the opening round of the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season and his return to action in general is currently up in the air following an apparent knee injury while testing.
With his Rockstar Energy Racing team switching from Suzuki to KTM for the 2014 season, Millsaps has been hard at work acclimating to the bike since August when he returned to riding following reconstructive knee surgery this past summer. The report indicates the current injury is to Millsap’s other, non-surgically repaired knee.
“I washed out in a corner and my leg got caught with the bike,” Millsaps told Cycle News. “As the bike kept flipping, it twisted my knee. We’re still in the early stages right now. I’ve had an MRI on it, but I have to go back in and get another one. As of right now, we’re not sure what’s going on and what’s going to happen.”
