Barcia’s Season Brought To An End By Nashville Crash

Justin Barcia’s Monster Energy AMA Supercross season has come to an early end.

The Troy Lee/Red Bull/GASGAS rider broke his collarbone, two ribs and right shoulder in a crash during last Saturday’s race at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn. The injuries will keep him from racing the remaining two rounds of the series.

With only a few laps to go in Nashville, Barcia was flipped over the handlebars of his bike coming off the dragon’s back and was flung hard into the dirt. The Alpinestars medical crew attended to the downed rider.

He was unable to complete the main event and was officially scored 21st.

Barcia took to Instagram on Thursday morning to provide an update on his injuries, sharing that he underwent surgery on Monday to repair his collarbone. He also noted that his shoulder does not require surgery.

“Definitely a bummer to go out this way,” Barcia said. “It was definitely my best mental and physical Supercross season. Really enjoyed it, had a lot of fun.”

The season-ending crash came only one week after Barcia earned his first Monster Energy AMA Supercross victory in two years.

During the Supercross round at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on April 22, the GASGAS rider valiantly fought his way through the muddy conditions to stand atop the box at night’s end.

Including the victory, Barcia has finished on the podium five times this year.
