With three wins in five starts, it’s safe to say that Adam Cianciarulo is a prodigy. He continues to show the ability to step up in any situation and doesn’t make any big mistakes. He’s already learned that consistency is the key to success on the professional level and now he’s in control of his own destiny to claim a first career pro title. Cianciarulo once again sits atop the Power Rankings this week.
Each week, The Power Rankings will recognize the movers and shakers in Monster Energy Supercross.
1. Adam Cianciarulo – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki
(Last Week: 1 / No Change)
In five starts, AC’s finishes read 1-2-1-2-1. His own formula for success has helped him grab one of the best starts to a pro career in history and it doesn’t appear as though he’s slowing down. Based on his past results, a runner-up finish is in the cards for AC at the next round.
2. Blake Baggett – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki
(Last Week: 2 / No Change)
Baggett did what he needed to do on the heels of a win and grabbed another podium result. Now he’s got some momentum on his side and he’s closing in on his teammate for second in the championship.
3. Justin Bogle – GEICO Honda (Last Week: 4 / +1)
What an impressive ride for Bogle at Detroit. He put the pressure on Cianciarulo and ultimately grabbed a career-best finish in second. While he’ll need to keep doing that in order to keep pace with Pro Circuit, it was a big step in the right direction.
4. Martin Davalos – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki (Last Week: 3 / -1)
Davalos had a day to forget in Detroit, but he was also very fortunate to walk away from a hard crash in practice relatively unscathed. It remains to be seen if he’ll have any lingering effects, but Davalos knows he has to get back on the podium in hopes of possibly climbing back into the title fight.
5. Kyle Cunningham – Smartop MotoConcepts Racing (Last Week: 8 / +3)
That’s the kind of ride Cunningham is capable of. It took longer than expected, but that could be the exact kind of result the veteran needs to become a fixture up front.
6. Vince Friese – The Factory Metal Works Honda (Last Week: 6 / No Change)
Friese got the job done and grabbed a solid seventh-place finish in Detroit. His starts weren’t as good as they’ve been, but he maintained his consistent start to the season.
7. Jeremy Martin – Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha (Last Week: 10 / +3)
Martin his starting to find his groove after such a difficult start to the season and secured his second top-10 finish in as many weeks. He still had to fight hard for that result, but the confidence is building.
8. Cole Thompson – Rockstar Energy Racing (Last Week: 9 / +1)
Not a great day for Thompson in Detroit, but a resilient effort to finish 11th. He surely expects more out of himself, but Thompson has shown good speed and just needs some solid starts to put everything together.
9. Alex Martin – Cycle Trader/Rock River Yamaha (Last Week: Not Ranked)
The Martin brothers are both in the Power Rankings for the first time this season. Alex and his brother did battle in Detroit, in what has been a solid season for the elder Martin thus far.
10. Matt Bisceglia – GEICO Honda (Last Week: 7 / -3)
A tough one for Bisceglia in Detroit as nothing seemed to go right for the rookie. Despite his 19th-place finish, Bisceglia really has shown more comfort with the pro pace and will likely be back inside the top 10 in no time.
Biggest Mover: Kyle Cunningham and Jeremy Martin (+3)
Biggest Drop: Matt Bisceglia (-3)
Dropped Out: Blake Wharton (Injured in Detroit, Did Not Race)
