Broken collarbone in Arlington practice sidelines Cianciarulo
Monster Energy Kawasaki newcomer injured during afternoon session.
450SX rookie Adam Cianciarulo will miss tonight’s eighth round of Monster Energy Supercross after breaking his collarbone in a qualifying incident this afternoon.
The injury brings his perfect qualifying record to an end after the Monster Energy Kawasaki rookie had been quickest across all seven rounds previously.
Cianciarulo – who was fifth in the session despite his early ending – misjudged the dragon-back, ejecting him over the handlebars and causing the clavicle injury. He will likely miss three to six weeks.
“Had a crash in Q1 and broke my left collarbone,” Cianciarulo confirmed. “Gonna have to sit this one out tonight. Sucks, but it is what it is – my fault. I’ll keep you guys updated on the recovery!”
Coming into Texas Cianciarulo currently sits fifth in the point-standings, his best results of second position coming at Anaheim 1 and San Diego. It’s unclear at this moment when he will be fit to return.
