ADAM CIANCIARULO’S CT SCAN SHOW 4 BACK FRACTURES & WILL SIT OUT REST OF 2020 SUPERCROSS SEASON
If you haven’t already heard, Adam Ciancairulo had a bad crash at round 11 of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series in Salt Lake City, Utah during the 450 main event. It was the second lap inside Rice Eccles Stadium that he miss-timed a rhythm section while in second place and went down. He looked to be okay, but his teammate Eli Tomac hit him, but it was just a love tap. It was the factory KTM rider of Cooper Webb that had nowhere to go other than the back of Adam causing the trama.

Adam got checked out by the doctor and everything checked out clear. So he tried to out and race round 12 in Salt Lake City on Wednesday. He didn’t make it to racing as his back hurt too bad to race after practice. He must have known something was wrong as he got the results of the CT scan of his back today which showed four acute lower back fractures.
Adam said, “This is not the news I was expecting to be sharing today, but after speaking to additional specialists and the team, it is in my best interest that I sit out the remainder of the Supercross season. This is a tough pill to swallow as I was really excited to get back to racing here in Salt Lake City, but I have to be smart with what my body is telling me. For now, I will focus on my recovery and do everything in my power to make sure I am ready to go in July for the start of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship. I want to thank the entire Monster Energy Kawasaki team for their unwavering support through this tough time. We will be back and stronger than ever.”
