Shortly after what was a sodden nine-lap main event clocked in at 12:21.321 of elapsed time, 17 year-old Monster Energy Supercross Series Garrett Marchbanks of the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team found himself standing alongside winning teammate Adam Cianciarulo on the podium at rain lashed Petco Park in downtown San Diego, California. “Garrett, first full year in supercross, at San Diego in the mud, he loved that,” said team mastermind Mitch Payton. “I didn’t realize he liked mud so much and he was excited about it. He pulled his goggles off in the second turn and then rode the whole moto without goggles and never had a problem and just kept going, going and going. He rode a fantastic race and that was really cool and inspiring and confidence-building for him.” 2019 has been a strong, often times consistent first year run for the No. 61 Kawasaki KX250F rider. Often times running well inside the top 10, Marchbanks has done well for himself in ’19, and with the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series poised to begin, well, things just might even get better.
