Never one to leave his fans hanging, Adam Cianciarulo has released yet another update that confirms he expects to return to racing in Seattle. That’s actually intriguing information – some had questioned whether or not he would just wait for round one of the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series.
“My goal right now is to be back racing by Seattle. With this type of injury, stability wise you can come back really quickly — as I’m sure you’ve seen other riders do in the past. At this point, in my situation, we want to limit the risk and make sure the bone is strong when I do return. Doing what I can right now to improve so we can pick up right where we left off! See you soon.”
