Adam Cianciarulo is riding through a finger injury in the opening rounds of the 2024 season.

Well, whoever has been doing the rain dances for Saturday nights in California, can you please stop now? Another mud race last weekend in San Diego saw another race that was interesting on one level, but frustrating on so many others.

Yes, the Cowboy got the win. Well done Aaron Plessinger. But I’m sure he would have preferred to get the “W” without lapping over half the field from slippery surface-induced crashes.

The slow speeds of San Francisco saw no injuries from that round. Speeds that were only slightly increased in San Diego. But it was enough. Press Day added a few, and Race Day a few more, unfortunately. 

So far from the October 1 2023 Change over to SX seasion. There have been 31 injuries recorded. 14 pre-season and 17 since round one.

We are currently averaging 10.3 injuries per round. Supercross is brutal.

There are still the many injuries that get covered up or found out weeks after the fact. Take the news this week from Adam Cianciarulo in an interview with Kellen Brauer of RacerX. Results that have been lacklustre for Adam through 3 rounds all of a sudden make a bit more sense. A minor finger fracture suffered in a collision with Jorge Prado at Anaheim One could explain his form in recent weeks. It will probably explain his form for a further 2-3 weeks yet.

With a triple crown this week at Anaheim Two and the potential chance of a dry race. It will be interesting to see how everyone handles the conditions and format and what impact that will have on our emergency department list next week.
