The last six months have been quite the whirlwind for Justin Barcia. Struggles through the 2017 season dropped the popular rider’s confidence and standing in the sport. After a short break in the offseason, during which Barcia reevaluated his love of the sport and lined up as a privateer at the 2017 Monster Energy Cup, an opportunity to fill-in at the Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory Racing team was extended his way. With the full support of the team and the all-new YZ450F platform, Barcia has found himself back at the front of the field in the opening rounds of the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross Series and is a contender for podium finishes and race wins on any given weekend.
