Monster Energy Kawasaki Reveals Its Rider Lineup For The 2024 U.S. Racing Season

Posted:

Jason Anderson returns after a strong 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Championship, earning seven Top-5 finishes.

Monster Energy Kawasaki will continue with its two title favorites in the 450 class with Adam Cianciarulo and Jason Anderson for the 2024 U.S. racing season.

In the 250 Class, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki is set to line up with established race winners, Austin Forkner, Cameron McAdoo, and Seth Hammaker, while also welcoming the championship contenders Levi Kitchen and Maximus Vohland.

Cianciarulo will continue his notable 19-year partnership with Kawasaki as he enters his fifth year of 450 Class racing. The No. 9 graduated through the Kawasaki Team Green program on his way to the 2019 AMA Pro Motocross 250 Championship, 2020 Pro Motocross Rookie of the Year and a total of 21 combined professional SMX wins. After completing the entire 2023 season injury-free, Cianciarulo is set to capitalise on a full off-season of preparation riding the new model with the team to be in prime form for his 2024 Championship efforts.

Adam Cianciarulo will continue his notable 19-year partnership with Kawasaki.

Anderson was strong throughout the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Championship, earning seven Top-5 finishes. After an injury at Round 15 of Supercross, Anderson carried his success into the Pro Motocross Championship where he claimed four Top-5 finishes and two overall podiums. Looking forward to the 2024 season, Anderson aims to continue his fight for premier-class supremacy.

“We have great confidence in our 2024 team roster and are excited to introduce the all-new KX™450SR,” said Kawasaki Racing Senior Manager, Dan Fahie. “We finished the 2023 SMX season strong and playoffs provide us with a strong foundation as we enter the off-season.”

Supported by an astonishing 31 years of professional racing success, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki race team will contest the 2024 SuperMotocross World Championship with a new lineup. The team who has achieved an unmatched 294 combined SMX wins, and 31 total championships, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki is gearing up for more victories with Forkner, McAdoo, Hammaker, Kitchen and Vohland.

Entering his ninth year with the team, Forkner’s impressive 13 victories position him as a top contender for the championship in 2024. This seasoned 250 Class rider is primed to clinch his inaugural professional championship.

McAdoo earned his 17th Monster Energy Supercross podium in 2023 before an injury after Round 5 sidelined him for the remainder of the 2023 season. The Iowa native aims to come back stronger than ever and build upon his success with a full championship campaign in the year ahead.

Austin Forkner will have another crack at a 250 title as he enters his ninth year with the team.

As Hammaker lines up for his fourth year in the professional circuit, his supercross Main Event win and his five podium finishes attest to his readiness to contend for the championship throughout the season.

“We have a proven group of five riders for the 2024 racing season. Austin was able to race Pro Motocross this year and will be ready for the new season,” said Pro Circuit Owner, Mitch Payton. “Seth had a major setback, but we are looking forward to his comeback. Cameron has been training on the bike and we are excited to have him back in the mix. Levi had an impressive 2023 season with great starts and a moto win at the last SMX race at the Los Angeles Coliseum. Finally, we anticipate Max to shine on his KX™250 in 2024. Overall, I am looking forward to each rider on the team to challenge for wins and championships.”

New to the team, Kitchen and Vohland look to infuse their skill, determination and passion into the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki lineup for the 2024 season. These rising stars in the motocross realm are determined to achieve even more remarkable results in the upcoming year. With a combined track record that includes Kitchen’s outstanding eight podium finishes and a main event victory, alongside Vohland’s impressive 10 Top-5 finishes, positions them as premier contenders in the class.

“I am super excited for my future with Monster Energy®/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki. I am ready to have a fresh start on a new team and put the KX™250 on top,” Kitchen said.

Max Vohland is also looking forward to joining the team saying, “I am beyond thrilled to get on a new bike, especially with Monster Energy®/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki. The power behind these machines are incredible and I am looking forward to my future with the team.”

Cameron Macadoo aims to come back stronger than ever and build upon his success with a full championship campaign in the year ahead.
