Justin Barcia’s Wrist Injury

1 year ago | Photos: JGR / Garth Milan

Unfortunately news has just come in that JGR Suzuki rider, Justin Bracia has sustained a wrist injury leading up to the 2017 supercross season opener. This is disappointing news because Barcia looked to be in top physical shape and comfortable on his new Suzuki. With any luck Barcia will only miss the first couple of rounds but I looks like he will need a little more time off the bike than that, to fully recover. Get well soon! Read the offical details bellow.

Press Release: “Justin Barcia will miss the opening rounds of the Monster Energy Supercross series due to a wrist injury. Justin had high expectations for the 2017 Supercross season on the JGRMX Suzuki, and is extremely disappointed to miss the start of the series. The injury occurred several weeks ago when a chain failure in the whoops sent Justin over the bars. Justin consulted with his surgeon in Florida, who ordered multiple radiological studies which revealed a fracture of his lunate bone, as well as ligament damage. While it was determined that surgery would not be necessary, the injury requires time off the bike to allow for proper healing. Justin said “I am so disappointed to have this wrist injury, especially now, but I’m glad that surgery is not necessary”. Justin will maintain a rigorous off-bike training protocol to allow him to join the series as soon as he is cleared by his team of doctors. Justin is extremely anxious to compete on the JGRMX Suzuki, but he will have to wait for the appropriate time to make his 2017 debut. Justin will be at Anaheim this weekend for press events and to support JGRMX Suzuki as they kick off the start of another exciting season. He wishes to thank his team, sponsors and all his fans for their support through this time.”
