Jockey Josephine Gordon is set to be crowned Champion Apprentice on Saturday and she told Sky Sports News what it took to get there. Vapormax 2019 Dames . Gordon has ridden 48 winners over the course of the Championship as well as 66 winners in 2016, putting her four winners clear of her nearest rival and last years champion Tom Marquand.The 23-year-old had to wait 18 months between her first and second race wins and is to become the first female winner since Amy Ryan in 2012. Gordon gave her advice on what it takes to be successful as a jockey: Its getting youre name out there and riding winners as well.Not just riding the odd winner here and there but riding winners at least once a week which gets you noticed.I think you just have to be thick skinned and keep working towards it and its always what i wanted to do so i never gave up.

The hard-serving 22-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., became the first Canadian to be ranked in the Top 10 on the ATP World Tour thanks to his runner-up performance at Rogers Cup in Montreal.Davi Millsaps went into the Monster Energy Cup with low expectations, treating it almost as a warm-up for the Supercross season.Of course he wanted to win the race — all riders do — but after spending 18 months away from racing because of injuries and running with a new team for the first time, getting a feel for racing again was the main priority.Turned out to be some warm-up.By taking the final moto and finishing top-5 in the other two, Millsaps won the Monster Energy Cup in October, earning a $100,000 paycheque while giving his Supercross season a huge kick-start.Honestly, it was a surprise to myself and everyone else, Millsaps said. But it was a really good race.The 17-race Supercross season kicks off Saturday at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California. The schedule also includes a stop at Levis Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, races in consecutive weekends in Atlanta and a switch from Qualcomm Stadium to Petco Park in San Diego.Once the first gate drops, Millsaps will be one of the favourites in what could be the most wide-open season to date.Ryan Villopoto, the four-time defending Supercross champion, retired from the series and went to race in Europe to compete for the FIM Motocross World Championship. Two-time champion James Stewart also will be missing after being suspended 16 months for a failed drug test.That leaves two riders who have previously won Supercross titles: Ryan Dungey and two-time champion Chad Reed.Millsaps finished second in 2012 and 2013, and is healthy again, so he will likely have a say in the championship race. Trey Canard is one of the series best young riders and was in line for a $1 million payday before wrecking in the final moto at the Monster Energy Cup, so expect to see him competing for a title.Justin Barcia, Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen also will be back and a new crop of talented riders will be makking the jump from the 250cc series, including Blake Baggett, who will race for Yoshimura Suzuki with Stewart out. Vapormax Flyknit 3 Heren. We say it every year, but I think this year is going to be incredible, said Dave Prater, director of Supercross for AMA Supercross. It should be wide open.Millsaps put his name in the mix by winning the Monster Energy Cup, but it was a long road back to get there.After finishing second in the 2013 Supercross season, he underwent surgery to fix a lingering knee injury, basically having his leg strengthened to prevent needing knee replacement surgery.The 26-year-old rider from Orlando, Florida, was out for nearly four months, then broke his foot and dislocated his ankle. Once Millsaps came back from that, he tore up his other knee and needed surgery.As he started riding again, his foot continued to hurt, so he had surgery to try fixing it. Then another. And another.It was miserable. Just the fact that every time I thought I fixed it, it came back, Millsaps said. Its definitely hard mentally to get past it.The final surgery finally fixed Millsaps foot and he was able to start riding outdoors in July. He also left Rockstar Energy Racing for Monster Energy Kawasaki, essentially filling the spot left by Villopotos departure.Millsaps had less than a month with his new team before the Monster Energy Cup and missed part of that time because he got sick, but meshed quickly.The team was already a well-oiled machine after winning four Supercross titles with Villopoto and Millsaps made a seamless transition, finishing third and fourth the first two races before taking the final moto and the big paycheque.Basically two years off a motorcycle, jump on a brand new one and win your first race, with everyone there really is really impressive, Prater said. You can never write Davi off. He seems to get better with age. ' ' '
