This marks the first national motocross win for a KTM sponsored rider on the WP AER cone valve fork suspension. Millsaps had a successful day of racing taking a 2nd place finish in the first moto and a dominating win in the second moto of the day. His 2-1 finishes earned him the overall win and the points lead heading into round two.

The WP AER cone valve fork, engineered in Austria, has been a factory racing prototype fork for the past two years and has been refined with the help of test riders Davi Millsaps and Andrew Short. Although the win at the Whispering Pines Raceway track marked the first National level win for the WP AER cone valve fork, Millsaps has raced on the new technology throughout the entire 2016 Supercross season.

Millsaps will continue to race board the WP AER suspension and is looking forward to the next event, stating, “I’ve been really happy with the AER fork so far and I feel like there is so much we are able to adjust to make them suitable for each race situation. We have only begun to crack the surface with this technology and I’m looking forward to the season.”
