The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing team lined up in the Rice-Eccles stadium in Salt Lake City, with Justin Barcia having a tough time in the main event.

It was a bad day for Barcia, who found himself on the ground more than enough times at the penultimate round.

“I felt really good in practice and in the heat but unfortunately, I ended up going down and tearing my radiator,” said Barcia, speaking at the track.

“Thankfully the team got it repaired quickly and got me ready for the LCQ. The Main Event was difficult to say the least. I got pushed out off the start, somehow cross-jumped into the bails and ended up going down and the bike hit me in the back.

“I charged up to 11th and was still moving forward and then I ended up endo’ing and bending my bike up pretty good. It’s definitely super disappointing on my end but I’m going to regroup and do the best I can do next week to finish the season out strong.”
