Cianciarulo and Marchbanks Look to Denver to Make it Back-To-Back Wins For Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki
CORONA, Calif. (April 10, 2019) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo and Garrett Marchbanks will make the trip to Denver this weekend as the series makes only its second trip ever to the mile high city. The duo look to keep the team on the top step of the podium after Martin Davalos took the win last Saturday in Nashville on the east coast. They are hoping the change in elevation and race format will benefit them in the penultimate race of the Western Regional championship.
Cianciarulo enters the race with a five-point lead over second in the championship. He’s accumulated four wins so far this year and is determined to make it back on top this weekend in Denver. With only two races remaining, Cianciarulo also has the championship on his mind and will do whatever it takes to keep the points advantage heading into the final round in Las Vegas.
“The season is winding down and we’ve had our high moments and not so great moments,” said Cianciarulo. “As much as I was focused on the championship at the start of the year, I was focused on being consistent and having fun, which really paid off. I made mistakes the past few races that cost me and I need to get back to just going out and racing - putting down the solid laps I know I can do. We’ll see how we settle in with the altitude this weekend.”
Like a lot of the riders, Marchbanks is happy to get back to the standard race format this weekend, especially when it comes to tackling the stress the elevation can bring if you’re not used to it. The Utah native comes from such elevation and is hoping it can be an advantage when the riders line up on Saturday.
“While I don’t live in elevation full time, I have been around it enough to know how I feel,” said Marchbanks. “It will hopefully give me a little advantage with two rounds to go and I would love to be able to get back on the podium again. I’m putting the last race behind me and will be coming ready to race up front.”
The Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders will be signing autographs on Friday, April 12 from 6 - 7 p.m. at Fay Meyers in Greenwood Village, Colorado.
The race from Broncos Stadium at Mile High will be broadcast LIVE on NBC Sports starting on Saturday, April 13 at 8:00 p.m. ET with NBC Sports Gold showing the race starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.
