Adam Cianciarulo will graduate to the premier class in 2020 after signing with Monster Energy Kawasaki, joining team regular and two-time outdoor champion Eli Tomac next year.

Cianciarulo will make his 450 debut after being part of Kawasaki’s racing program for a number of years, beginning with a record-setting stint in amateurs with Team Green and a successful career underneath the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki team awning in the 250 category.

“I am super excited and grateful for this opportunity,” said Cianciarulo. “I was just a little kid when I signed with Kawasaki in 2004, and it’s been a dream of mine since then to reach this point.

“From growing up in the Team Green program, to my 250cc career with Mitch Payton and Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki, I feel I’m prepared to take on this next challenge of competing at the highest level. The work has just begun and I’m ready to get started on my new KX450.”

It was announced in May that Tomac signed a multi-year contract extension, while the team has confirmed Joey Savatgy will depart the squad at season’s end. Cianciarulo, who leads the 250MX points rankings in the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship, will make his maiden 450 race at the 2019 Monster Energy Cup.
