 2020 Season Recap

Justin Barcia got off to a roaring start at the top of the 2020 Supercross season after taking the victory in Round 1 in Anaheim and finishing second in Round 2 in St. Louis. Barcia went on to grab six more top-five finishes in 2020 that eventually landed him in 5th place on the season-ending leader board, just one spot off his best career finish of 4th place in 2013.

 2021 Outlook

Barcia is heading into 2021 with a new look. After spending the past three years alongside the Monster Energy/Star Racing Yamaha team, Barcia will be pilot the solo 450 class efforts for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GasGas Factory Racing team. This is a massive change for Barcia heading into 2021 but certainly, an exciting and historic one as this is the first GasGas Factory Racing team assembled in the U.S. If Barcia can carry over the success he achieved on the Yamaha, he will no doubt be in title contention with defending champion, Eli Tomac.
