2021 Season Recap

Cianciarulo started out his 2021 Monster Energy Supercross campaign with a 4th place finish at the opening round in Houston and proceeded to follow it up with three more top 5 finishes through the first eight rounds, one of which was a third-place podium. During Round 8 in Orlando, Cianciarulo suffered a broken a collarbone after a hard crash that ultimately put him out for the remainder of the season. Difficult news for the young rider during his sophomore season after his promising rookie campaign was also cut short due to injury in 2021. 

2022 Outlook

Cianciarulo took three months to heal and get ready for the outdoor Motocross season that kicked off in June. Again, Cianciarulo was competing well with the top 5 of the outdoor series through five rounds and unfortunately suffered another crash in Round 6 that aggravated a nagging nerve injury in his right arm and ultimately shut down the remainder of his 2021 Motocross season. Cianciarulo will look to get through this 2022 Supercross season in one piece and prove what he’s already shown the world a glimpse of, he’s ready to contend for a 450SX Class title with the best riders in the world.
