KTM announced the signing via a press release, putting to rest the rumours surrounding his move. It had been predicted Millsaps would make the transition with the series opener set for June 5 at Whispering Pines Raceway.
The ten race season will see Millsaps contest the stacked MX1 Class which includes 2015 champ Matt Georke, Australian legend Brett Metcalfe, Mike Alessi, Vince Friese and Colton Facciotto.
Millsaps had only signed a supercross contract with BTO Sports KTM and is expected to return to the team for their 2017 campaign. For now his focus will shift towards a successful outdoors campaign in Canada.
“I’m very excited to be heading north for the summer,” Millsaps commented. “With the support of WP North America and the factory Services engine division, I feel really comfortable on my 450 SX-F. There is going to be a high level of competition in the MX1 class but I am going to work hard to provide KTM with their first ever title in this class.”
