“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.
