AMA Supercross 250 title hopeful, Adam Cianciarulo is apparently to miss three to four months following a serious crash during the AMA Supercross in Toronto.
Cianciarulo crashed during 250 practice in Toronto, separating his shoulder through the whoops. Medical staff popped Adam’s shoulder back in and he then bravely attempted to continue riding but ultimately had to retire.
RacerX reports that Cianciarulo will now undergo surgery which will end the rookie’s promising supercross season.
It’s very early days so we can’t be sure but we think it’s very likely Cianciarulo will also miss 2014 Outdoor series.
Update: The team have confirmed that Cianciarulo went under the knife to repair the damage to his shoulder.
“This setback is very disappointing,” says Cianciarulo. “We had a great start to the supercross season and I wanted to win a championship for my Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team. As much as I would love to tough it out like I did last weekend, the people around me and I feel this is the best decision to fix my shoulder for good.”
The 17-year-old pilot added: “I know I will come back stronger and ready to compete as soon as I can.”
