Welcome back! Monster Energy is proud to announce the worldwide release of the new ‘Forkner Style 2’ video featuring Supercross racing prodigy and Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki rider Austin Forkner. Live now on Monster Energy’s social media channels, the video marks Forkner’s return to racing after a season-ending injury sustained in January 2021.
This weekend, the 22-year-old from Richards, Missouri, will start his battle for the national championship in Round 1 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Fox Raceway in Pala, California. Fully recovered from his recent shoulder injury, the six-time national amateur champion and professional 250 Class Championship contender is ready to bring the heat on May 29.
“Honestly, I think I should have won at least one championship, maybe two, by now,” said Forkner in the new video, adding: “I’ve learned a lot and I'm still having fun. Obviously, injuries aren’t fun but winning races and being up front – I love that!”
