Barcia’s costly crash in Seattle

Justin Barcia threw away a second place finish in Seattle after landing on a Tuff block – but fortunaterly was uninjured! The TLD Gas Gas rider was able to remount and finish fifth.

Barcia commented: “It felt awesome to win the heat race – the bike was ripping! We made a few changes for the Main Event and got a second-place start. Me and Eli checked out, running a good pace and I just got a little off the line, landed on a tuf block and went flipping. I’m super disappointed in that but I was riding my heart out and ended up fifth. My bike was already torn up after that crash and I managed the race as good as I could. All-in-all, I’m just happy with the positives on the day. It’s a bummer on the crash but we’ll be back in St. Louis to go for the win.”
