GasGas teammates Justin Barcia and Michael Mosiman will not line up at this Saturday’s Unadilla Motocross National after suffering separate practice crashes and concussions during the recent break from racing.
Justin Barcia said, “I’m definitely disappointed to say I won’t be heading to Unadilla this weekend. I’m a New York guy and it’s one of my favorite races, but I want to make sure I’m going there to win and if I’m not able to do that, I need to take my time and get back to 100%. I’m definitely going to miss the whole team there, all the supportive fans and of course being on the gate and racing for those wins but I’ll see everyone very soon.”
Michael Mosiman said, “I am super bummed that I’m not going to be able to race Unadilla, I was looking forward to it and felt really good. I feel like I’ve got a lot of momentum at my back right now, but I’m going to take the time to heal up 100% and be right so I can race at the front of the pack. I’ve already missed a race and I’m out of the championship so it’s better for me to race at 100% than to go and try to salvage at less than that. We’ll come back stronger hopefully very soon.”
Teammate Pierce Brown will represent the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing squad in the 250MX class this weekend in New York, where he aims to secure his first podium finish of the season.
