Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing team rider Justin Barcia will sit out this weekend’s 2019 Supercross round in Atlanta following a crash while training today at his compound in Florida.
Following a medical check at Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic (TOC) in Tallahassee, Florida, Barcia is being evaluated for a concussion and as a precautionary measure he will not take part in this weekend’s Monster Energy Supercross round at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.
After eight rounds into the 2019 Supercross series, Justin sits 6th in points with one win under his belt at the opening round at Anaheim 1.
Yamaha team manager Jim Perry had this to say: “The news of Justin’s accident this morning is a real pity, but our main concern is Justin’s health and recovery. Following the Concussion Protocol, we hope that Justin will be back to 100% and cleared to participate soon.”
