Justin Barcia Inks Extension with TLD GasGas

We got some Silly Season news.

One of the first big pieces to the 2024 Silly Season puzzle has dropped. Justin Barcia is staying with Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GasGas. Barcia announced after Atlanta he’s signed a new two-year deal with the team.

“Well, I signed something, so they’re stuck with me, for sure!” said Barcia after Atlanta. “Yeah, it seems like I got the go ahead to say I signed my contract for another two years. I think it’s a great partnership. I started when GasGas came [to the sport]. I think it’s a great partnership. I think they’re happy with me, obviously. I’m happy with them. I love the Austrian brand, the bike. They just spent a zillion dollars on that beautiful new building. They put in the effort on the tracks up there. And I give it 110 percent always. So, let’s finish out my career here.

“And another two years, will I be done? I don’t know, maybe,” he continued. “Probably not though. I’m feeling good, dude! I want to keep racing. Let’s go! Maybe we’ll see what happenes. But yeah, I’m stoked to be a part of the whole Troy Lee Designs family. I loved all these guys. It’s just a big family and I’m happy and I’m really proud and stoked to be a part of the team.”

Barcia landed his second consecutive podium in Atlanta and is fourth in 450SX points.
