Kawasaki rider Adam Cianciarulo will sit out the remainder of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross season after a knee injury. Cianciarulo sustained the injury during last weekend’s San Diego race.
Cianciarulo was doing well this season, leading laps in back-to-back 450SX main events. Cianciarulo also injured his shoulder in the pre-season but competed anyway.
“The start of this year has been challenging for me mentally and physically as I’ve done my best to overcome a slowly recovering shoulder injury,” said Cianciarulo. “I’m proud of what I’ve been able to achieve given the situation but, I’m obviously now faced with a big setback. I’m looking at this as an opportunity to fully rehab my body, so I’m focused on maximizing every day of recovery to get back to doing what I love at my best.”
