Monster Energy Kawasaki rookie Adam Cianciarulo led the second 450 moto at the opening round of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross at Loretta Lynn’s on Saturday before a huge crash after the finish line.
AC was able to get up and ride to the mechanics area before withdrawing from the moto due to bike problems.
“The Loretta’s track was nothing like I remember,” he said in a team statement. “I had zero sense of nostalgia out there. The track was ripped way deeper and you need to ride so much harder than I ever did as an amateur here. Obviously I’m tired of crashing, but I felt really good in Moto 2 and even grabbed the holeshot. We’ll keep working hard over the week and suit up for better results for Round 2 at the Ranch.”
Someone caught the wild crash and AC posted it on Instagram.
