JOEY SAVATGY RETURNS TO MONSTER ENERGY KAWASAKI FOR 2022 PRO MOTOCROSS SERIES

With the Rocky Mountain KTM team falling apart mid-Supercross season, Joey Savatgy, Shane McElrath and Max Anstie have been scrambling to figure out who goes where for the Outdoor Nationals. Now, the first of three riders has signed a deal ride for the summer as Joey Savatgy returns to Kawasaki to fill-in for the injured Adam Cianciarulo (the same rider that replaced Joey at Kawasaki two years ago).


Foothill Ranch, Calif. (May 10, 2022) – The Monster Energy® Kawasaki racing team and Joey Savatgy have come to an agreement for the Team Green™ veteran to compete on a KX™450SR alongside Jason Anderson in the 2022 AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Savatgy rejoins Team Green after a two-year hiatus, building upon a successful four-year race-winning partnership aboard a KX™250 with the Monster Energy® /Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team and a year of premier class competition with Monster Energy Kawasaki. In 2019, Savatgy earned Monster Energy® AMA Supercross 450SX “Rookie of the Year” honors as well as several top-10 Pro Motocross finishes with the Monster Energy Kawasaki team.

Savatgy will fill-in for Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Adam Cianciarulo until he is ready to return from a knee injury sustained earlier this season. With a proven history of 250cc Pro Motocross wins with Kawasaki, the team and Savatgy look forward to the No.17 rider competing at the front of the pack alongside the No.21 of Anderson.

“It’s a privilege to join the Monster Energy Kawasaki team for the upcoming Pro Motocross Championship. I’ve had a lot of success with the team in the past and I’m eager to continue building on that in the coming months. We’re only a few weeks shy of the season opener so we will aim to progress as the season goes on, but I’m confident my familiarity with the bike and the team will help speed that process along. I’m optimistic about what we can achieve together this summer.”
