Justin Barcia will miss this weekend’s supercross in Atlanta after a practice crash this week left him with concussion.
The opening round winner hasn’t quite been able to find that same race-winning magic again but has been consistent and currently sits sixth in the standings.
You can read the official statement from Monster Energy below:
Following a medical check at TOC in Tallahassee, Florida, Barcia is being evaluated for concussion and as a precautionary measure will not take part in this weekend’s Monster Energy Supercross round at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.
“The news of Justin’s accident this morning is a real pity, but our main concern is Justin’s health and recovery. Following the Concussion Protocol, we hope that Justin will be back to 100% and cleared to participate soon.”
