Multi-Year partners of Pro Circuit Racing team

We are proud to be multi-year partners with the Pro Circuit Racing team! We’re looking forward to an exciting new season of racing, especially with the new Supercross format!

The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki squad is prepped and ready for the opening round of the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross series, starting Saturday, January 6 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California. The first round kicks off new elements to the 250SX Class including two East/West shootout races.

Following the team’s 20th supercross championship last season in the Western Regional class, the four-rider lineup of Adam Cianiciarulo (#92), Austin Forkner (#35), Joey Savatgy (#17) and Martin Davalos (#29) have been gearing up to add to that number with back-to-back championship seasons.

Team By The Numbers

Between all four riders, there is a collective 13 supercross wins and 38 additional podium finishes.

Cianciarulo has earned five wins in just 15 starts with four additional podium finishes.

Savatgy and Davalos both have four wins each to their credit.

Last year in his first supercross season, Forkner raced to four top-five results with two of those being podium finishes.

Savatgy’s four seasons racing Supercross (didn’t race in 2014) he has accumulated 11 additional podiums on top of his four wins.

In his last term with Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki, Davalos competed in 15 supercross races earning two wins and eight additional podiums.

Roger Pujol champion category GP3

Last Saturday, September 23 took place in L’Ampolla (Baix Ebre) the last of the seven regattas that comprise the Catalonia Championship for water scooters 2017. The regatta has had the organization of the Catalan Federation of Motonautics and the support of the Tourist Board of L’Ampolla, the Red Cross of the Bottle, the Ampolla Boat Club and the Masachs Caves.

With this race there have been thirteen consecutive years of regattas in l’Ampolla and a season of success has been closed in which, for the second consecutive year, a total of seven scores have been disputed. This goes beyond any other autonomous or state championship and is at a comparable level with the championships of Spain in the early 1990s, when it also had six or seven races per season. Currently, the Spanish Championship has three regattas.

The 2017 championship has traveled throughout the Catalan coast, with races in Empuriabrava, L’Estartit, the Olympic Channel of Castelldefels, Cambrils, Deltebre, Amposta and L’Ampolla. In addition, the Catalan championship has had the participation of pilots of Valencia, Andalusia and Madrid, as well as two French pilots in some of the races, but without scoring.

The regatta of L’Ampolla was developed on a prognosis. Although the day was raised, the forecast of good weather, sun and sea was calm, which allowed the forecasts to be met in terms of results.

In the GP3 category the title was decided in favor of the Girona Roger Pujol so he was limited to a conservative race, which allowed him to finish third, just behind Jordi Tomás and junior Joan Sevil, who starred in spectacular horsepower from the middle of the group to the race head. Pujol is the new Champion of Catalonia but the new runner-up is Denis Munnikhuis, who managed to overtake Alex Muñoz and add a point more than he – just one – to the general classification.

The title in the F4 category, reserved for unlucky pilots, was to be decided, but there were no surprises either. Jordi Pratginestós won the race after passing the first goal line in the first two hoses and doing second to third. Another driver who had the option to the final podium was Jordi González, who made the forecasts good and was second, winning even the third hose, while the third in contention, Genis Vilalta, was relegated to ninth position because of a bout that damaged his motorcycle, but without personal consequences for any of the participants. Also in this case, it is necessary to pay attention to the score, although despite not scoring the Bottle, Vilalta kept the second position in the general classification of the championship, with two points ahead of Gonzalez.

Drama at French GP for Van De Ven

Nancy van de Ven of the No Fear Yamaha team lost the world title in dramatic fashion at the final GP of the series in France. She finished second in the first race, giving her a slender championship lead going into the final, where the title slipped out of her hands in dramatic fashion.

The final round of the Women’s motocross world championship was held at Villars sous Ecot in France. The circuit was immaculately prepared, but half an hour before the first race on Saturday, a deluge turned it into a quagmire.

Nancy had qualified third and took the early lead in race one with title rivals Courtney Duncan and Kiara Fontanesi in tow. Fontanesi moved into the lead, and Nancy had some trouble when she slid out. She recovered and was ready to reclaim second when Duncan also made a mistake. This gave her the championship lead.

The rain did not let off throughout the night, and the track was nearly impassable. The organisers cut out part of the track. Nancy settled into third after one lap, being careful to avoid stranded riders. Nancy held her third place for a long time, which made her the virtual world champion. Alas, with two laps to go, she swerved to avoid another rider, and that caused her to slide down the hill. It took her a long time to get going again, which cost her two places and the world title.

Nancy suffered a lot of setbacks during the season, but fought back every time purely on character. Alas, the drama of the last few laps dropped her to fourth in the world championship series, where she deserved so much more.

 

Overall WMX France:

1. Kiara Fontanesi 45 pnt

2. Livia Lancelot 42 pnt

3. Courtney Duncan 40 pnt

4. Nancy van de Ven 38 pnt

5. Larissa Papenmeier 36 pnt

Nancy van de Ven wins at her home round

(ASSEN) The Netherlands, 10 September 2017 – In an epic day of racing at the MXGP of the Netherlands the Women’s Motocross World Championship chase tightened up to a new level of competitiveness with the top 4 in the standings only separated by 5 points. Dutch native Nancy van de Ven took double race wins on her way to taking the narrow championship points lead in Assen.

In Saturday’s WMX Race 1 Larissa Papenmeier led the opening 5 laps first over Team One One Four’s Livia Lancelot and then Nancy van den Ven after the dutch rider made it by Lancelot on lap 3. After the pass on the #114 van de Ven went after Papenmeier and took the lead.

Meanwhile the title contenders of MXFONTA SYNECO’S Kiara Fontanesi and Altherm JCR Yamaha’s Courtney Duncan where coming back from 11th and 9th place starts. The pair was able to make it up to a 4th place finish for Duncan and a 5th for Fontanesi behind van de Ven, Papenmeier, and Lancelot.

Race 2 was full of passes and battle with the only exception being the #85 of van de Ven who led from the start and never looked back on her way to the race win and overall. The real shake up was between Fontanesi, Papenmeier, Lancelot, and Duncan who started 2nd,3rd,4th, and 6th with KTM Silver Action’s Amandine Verstappen in the 5th position early.

Papenmeier struggled early and though she started in 3rd dropped to 6th only 3 laps in to the race. At the same time Duncan was moving forward quickly first to 4th on lap 3 and to 3rd on lap 7. However Livia Lancelot made a late charge going from fourth on lap 9 of 12 to cross the line in second ahead of Fontanesi, Duncan, and Papenmeier.

In the overall it was a clear home win for Nancy van de Ven with Lancelot taking second and Papenmeier rounding out the podium. In the championship van de Ven takes the red plate into the final round next weekend by only 2 points over Courtney Duncan in 2nd and 5 points over Fontanesi in 4th.

Cianciarulo Closes Out Season With Fourth Straight Moto Podium

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (August 27, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo earned his fourth straight moto podium at the season finale at Ironman Raceway. His 2-2 moto scores helped Cianciarulo end the Pro Motocross season on a positive note and gave the team its seventh overall podium of the year. Cianciarulo also finished third overall in the championship standings. Justin Hill made a positive return after sitting out several races due to injury, scoring inside the top 10 in ninth with an 11-9 moto score.

Adam Cianciarulo
The day started how it has started many times this season for Cianciarulo, claiming the top qualifier. Cianciarulo shot out of the gate in Moto 1 and took over the lead before the opening lap was complete. He kept his Pro Circuit-powered KX250F out front for over half the race before settling into second where he would end the moto. In Moto 2, Cianciarulo clocked his 39th lap led this season on the opening lap and moved into second on Lap 3. He held off advances from his competitors, but was able to take home second overall with his solid 2-2 moto finishes.

“Winning would have been nice, but it’s a good feeling to be consistently on the podium the past few races,” said Cianciarulo. “I’m looking forward to continuing to work hard for the team next season and hopefully bring them home a championship.”

Justin Hill
With Hill having sat out the last several rounds due to injury, it was hard to predict how the Oregonian would feel as he ticked off laps at the start of the day. He was in the top 10 during qualifying and came around 12th on the opening lap of Moto1. He had made his way inside the top 10 before ultimately settling for 11th in the first moto. Determined to finish the season with a solid result, Hill put his head down after starting Moto 2 in 15th. He picked off riders and made his way into ninth where he would finish the moto and eventually the overall.

“It was nice to come back and get in the top 10 after spending little time on the bike since my injury,” said Hill. “The conditions were really nice in Indiana, but the track can be brutal. Just glad we stayed healthy and showed some progress.”

Savatgy Earns Moto Win On The Way To Podium Finish

NEW BERLIN, N.Y. (August 13, 2017) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Joey Savatgy and Adam Cianciarulo faced two very different track conditions from Moto 1 to Moto 2 as the skies opened up on Unadilla MX shortly after Savatgy claimed the Moto 1 win. The three-time overall winner this season had to come from behind in sloppy conditions in Moto 2 to earn second overall, while Cianciarulo raced to a 5-8 moto score to finish sixth overall.

Joey Savatgy 
Savatgy was riding a two-race win streak into Round 10 and proved he came to win after scoring the top qualifier award. In Moto 1, he tucked in behind his teammate Cianciarulo off the start and followed him around the first lap in second. He stayed with him and after Cianciarulo made a mistake, took over the lead and never looked back. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate to provide the same track conditions in Moto 2 and the riders faced a soupy and sloppy racetrack when the motos resumed for only 20 minutes plus one lap. Savatgy got a decent start, but had to settle for fourth, giving him second overall with a 1-4.

“Even though I won the last race with a 7-1 in Washington, I still feel like I’ve found my groove again up front,” said Savatgy. “It would have been interesting if the weather held up and we were able to race in the dry again, but that’s racing. We only have four motos left, but I’m ready to be at the front in each race.”

Adam Cianciarulo
Cianciarulo started the day as the Moto 1 holeshot winner, leading the field and his teammate for a good portion of the first half of the race. On Lap 7, Cianciarulo lost the front end in a turn and went down, but quickly remounted in third. He would eventually finish fifth in Moto 1. With a sloppy track to manage, Cianciarulo worked his way up from a start outside the top 10 to finish eighth. His 5-8 scores placed him just off the top five in sixth.

“We had a great first moto going until I made a small mistake that cost me,” said Cianciarulo. “It was hard to get going again after that and I was able to keep it in the top five. The second moto was all about survival on the start, which we did, but I was still far enough back to make it hard on myself to work through the pack. It’s going to be fun going into Budds Creek knowing that we had some speed to work with in Moto 1 this weekend.”
