Shoulder Injury Will Sideline Adam Cianciarulo for Season

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo will miss the remainder of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season, the team announced. Cianciarulo sustained a partially torn labrum in his right shoulder while testing for the RedBud National on Thursday prior to the event. The injury will require surgery, but no date has been announced. This is the opposite shoulder of the one that caused Adam to miss the entire 2014 Lucas Oil Motocross Championship and the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross Championship. It's also a different type of injury (the previous injury to the left side involved a dislocation).

“I was starting to get my fitness to the level I needed to compete for wins and now this injury happened,” said Cianciarulo in a team statement. “It wasn’t a small fall, but I did come down awkwardly. I’ve had to fight back from injury before and I’m determined to do it again. I’m going to do everything I can to heal properly and come back ready to win in supercross.”

Cianciarulo was third in the 250MX championship prior to RedBud last weekend, and led laps in the final moto he competed in at Budds Creek.
