Justin Barcia Speaks On Motocross of Nations Performance

Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia #9 speaks:

“The weekend was good; I struggled a little and I have much respect to Team Belgium and Italy, as the tracks here are extremely tough and a lot more challenging than back at home. I know we said that last year in the sand, but these guys ride some gnarly stuff. We wanted to win bad, but these guys just outrode us this year. I got a decent start in the first race, but I rode a bit tight and struggled with some stuff, although I ended up fourth. In the second race I fell on the start and had to fight my way back from the back of the pack, which was some frustrating racing. I didn’t ride very well all weekend, but there’s a lot of cool fans here. We are disappointed to finish second, but it’s been another good experience. I love racing with these guys, as it’s awesome. The European series is cool and the tracks are way gnarlier than back at home. I wish our tracks got like that; we can’t find anything like that in the US to ride with it being so choppy and gnarly. Hopefully, one day I can maybe come back and race the GPs after hopefully winning some US championships. No excuses for the race. We got beaten, but there’s nothing more in my heart I want than to win every race. I always want to win, and that’s my goal, so I did give it 100-percent.”

The United States finished second, with Barcia contributing a 4th place in his first moto on his factory Honda CRF450R, and an 11th in the finale, after crashing into a falling rider in the opening turn.
