Torrance, CA: Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia will not compete at this weekend’s Thunder Valley National due to a foot and ankle injury. With two rounds completed, Barcia currently sits sixth in the series. Despite a tough first moto at Glen Helen he was able to log a 13th overall, with an impressive fourth place finish in moto two. At Hangtown, Barcia battled throughout the afternoon to finish fifth overall with 4-5 marks.
“We are really bummed that Justin has to miss out on this weekend’s race,” stated Team Manager Dan Betley. “He has been riding really well the last couple weeks and after an impressive performance last year at Colorado, we had high hopes for him heading into the event. We look forward to his return.”
American Honda will release more information as it becomes available.
