Justin Barcia Injury Update | Supercross News
Yamaha’s Justin Barcia

It’s been a rough year for the AutoTrader.com/Toyota/Yamaha Team. The Joe Gibbs Racing (JGRMX) team’s newest riders – Justin Barcia and Weston Peick – both missed rounds due to injury.

The latest to get injured was Barcia, who was forced to miss San Diego Supercross due to suffering an injury to his hip area Thursday while practicing. He was hoping to ride in San Diego, but was forced to travel home to Georgia to seek medical attention.

Barcia’s team reports that their was a crack in his pelvic bone, but the injury does not require surgery. Unfortunately, Barcia will be sidelined for the following two rounds – Arlington and Atlanta – if not longer. Substituting for the injured Barcia at the next two rounds will be Phillip Nicoletti.

JGRMX will update on any progress regarding the Yamaha YZ-F450F pilot’s condition.

As for teammate Yamaha SX teammate Peick, who was injured in Phoenix, he plans on making a full return to action at this weekend’s Arlington round at AT&T Stadium. He also missed San Diego, but reports feeling strong enough to return this weekend.

If Peick, who rode for the first time Monday since his injury, does not return at Arlington, he will surely be on the gate for Atlanta Feb. 21.
