The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team impressed once again for Round 2 of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross series with Cianciarulo riding flawlessly all night and his rookie teammate Garrett Marchbanks capturing another top-10 overall finish.
Cianciarulo delivered Kawasaki their first main event win of the season as he grabbed the holeshot in the 250SX Main Event and never looked back. He now sits second, just five points behind the leader in the 250SX West Championship Points Standing.
The No. 61 of Marchbanks showed no signs of slowing down as he finished eighth in the 250SX Heat 2 race. As Marchbanks shot out of the gate in the 250SX Main Event, the rookie showed his strength and determination by climbing from 17th place all the way to finish ninth, continuing to show improvement each time he’s on the track.
“We did it! My team crushed it and I’m glad I was able to repay their hard work with a win. We’ll be back to work this week and we’ll come out swinging next weekend when we return to Anaheim. This win feels so good and I really feel I’m on the path I should be on. We’re already off to a great start to the season, let’s go!” – Adam Cianciarulo
“Round 2 is done and I’m proud of our ninth-place position. I’m still learning each week, working on my starts and building my confidence. I’m so grateful for all the hard work my team has put in and all the support they continue to provide me with. This track was a lot different from the others I’m used to but I’m using everything as experience and applying it to each round.” – Garrett Marchbanks
