2018 Season Recap:

Barcia scored a fill-in ride with Monster Energy/Yamaha Factory Racing to compete in 2018 and finished inside the top five in the first two races. The New York native eventually earned a permanent spot and a multi-year deal with the team as one of the most talented riders in the sport, capable of winning at any moment. Barcia will return in 2019 alongside teammate and 450SX class rookie Aaron Plessinger.


2019 Season Recap:

Barcia won the season-opening race at Anaheim but never really got close to winning again after that. It didn't help that a couple of hard crashes toward the end of the season preventing him from running the full schedule.
