Adam Cianciarulo Missing Supercross With Shoulder Injury
Irvine, Calif., (December 11, 2014) — Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Adam Cianciarulo will not compete in the 2015 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM Championship following an injury suffered while competing overseas. The three-time 250SX race winner landed awkwardly following a crash and the impact injured his shoulder forcing him to undergo surgery this week.
“I’m very frustrated, not just for me but for my sponsors and all of my supporters," said Cianciarulo. "I’ve been fortunate and blessed enough to have a very healthy career up until this past year. My off-season training has been going well and everything was coming together nicely to have a good supercross season. This injury sets me back, so now I am turning my focus to getting healthy and preparing for motocross starting in May. As hard as this is, I’m in good spirits knowing I have such a great group of people behind me "
As a Kawasaki Team Green standout, Cianciarulo became the winningest mini-bike rider in the history of the AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn's. In six starts as a supercross rookie, Cianciarulo scored five podium finishes including three wins.
