The Green machines of Monster Energy Kawasaki and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki are ready another year of world-class racing in 2023.
Monster Energy Kawasaki will continue its two title favourites of Kawasaki Team Green graduate and 2020 Pro Motocross runner-up Adam Cianciarulo who will compete for his fourth year aboard the KX450SR alongside 2022 AMA Supercross runner-up Jason Anderson following an exceptional 2022 season. In the 250 Class, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki will also continue with its roster of proven race winners with Jo Shimoda, Austin Forkner, Cameron McAdoo, and Seth Hammaker in addition to nine-time AMA Amateur National Champion Jett Reynolds and upcoming Kawasaki Team Green rider Ryder DiFrancesco.
“We are confident with our team roster for 2023,” said Kawasaki Racing Senior Manager, Dan Fahie. “The success we shared with Jason in both supercross and motocross is promising as we look to the upcoming unified SuperMotocross World Championship. We’re also very optimistic about Adam’s return to the starting gate as he’s proven to be a top contender at the premier level. We are in a great place with the development of our KX450SR and look forward to continued success through this next evolution of professional motocross.”
Anderson and his KX450SR proved a winning pair through the 2022 Monster Energy Supercross Championship, earning seven Monster Energy Supercross Main Event wins and leading 135 Main Event laps; nearly twice as many laps led as his closest rival. Anderson carried his success into the Pro Motocross Championship where he claimed his first 450 Class overall win at Round 2 and asserted himself as a staple podium finisher. Looking to the Monster Energy Supercross Championship, Pro Motocross Championship and SuperMotocross World Championship in 2023, Anderson aims to continue his fight for premier class supremacy.
