Adam Cianciarulo Joins Eli Tomac at Monster Energy Kawasaki

Posted:

Adam Cianciarulo will step up to the 450 class full time in 2020
The Monster Energy Kawasaki race team returns with a set of familiar faces, looking to continue their winning ways in 2020.

The team has had a successful year in Monster Energy AMA Supercross and is in the thick of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship battle in both classes. For 2020, the Monster Energy Kawasaki roster of riders aboard KX䋢450 motorcycles will feature two-time defending AMA Pro Motocross Champion and current AMA Pro Motocross Championship points leader Eli Tomac.

Joining him will be Adam Cianciarulo making his premier class debut.

‰ÛÏI am super excited and grateful for this opportunity," said Cianciarulo. ‰ÛÏI was just a little kid when I signed with Kawasaki in 2004, and it‰Ûªs been a dream of mine since then to reach this point.

"From growing up in the Team Green program, to my 250cc career with Mitch Payton and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki, I feel I‰Ûªm prepared to take on this next challenge of competing at the highest level. The work has just begun and I‰Ûªm ready to get started on my new KX450.‰Û
Eli Tomac who is on track for his third American Motocross championship will take another shot at his maiden SX 450 title with Kawasaki again in 2020
Following his record-setting amateur years with the Team Green race team and a successful career underneath the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team awning, he will now join the factory 450 effort. After a successful debut in the 450 class, Joey Savatgy will finish the final three AMA Pro Motocross rounds with full support of the team to close out his rookie season.

"We have a very strong 2020 team roster," said Kawasaki Racing Senior Manager, Dan Fahie. "We still have work to do this summer in hopes that both Eli and Adam can bring home championships in their respective classes. We are excited to be continuing our championship journey with Eli and welcoming Adam and his storied Kawasaki racing career onto our 450 team. We learned a lot about our KX450 and are in a good place heading into 2020 with the development of the motorcycle."

Tomac and Cianciarulo aim to complete the 2019 AMA Pro Motocross Championship with a green sweep of the championships in both the 450MX and 250MX classes. Tomac and his new premier class stable-mate Cianciarulo will then head to Las Vegas on October 19th to battle in the desert for the coveted ‰ÛÏMonster Million‰Û
