Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GasGas’ Justin Barcia was enjoying a fantastic season. He won his first race since Houston 1 in 2021 last weekend in East Rutherford. He won his heat race in Nashville on Saturday and was running third early in the main event.
Then Barcia made a big mistake on the dragon’s back and went down hard. He was taken off the track by the Alpinestars medical team and was unable to continue the race.
According to Racer X, Barcia sustained a broken collarbone in the crash. This is a massive bummer for Barcia and the team.
This is a developing story and we’ll post more as we know.
