Bam Bam Flying Under The Radar

It was amazing the lack of coverage Justin got Saturday night. When they did show him he looked totally in control and he was flying actually gaining on Webb at one point. To me this is another sign that he has really turned the corner and I think he will win again. Hopefully tomorrow!

Anybody notice how hard he throws the front of the bike down in the air? Dude is tossing it around like it’s a 125

He's one of my favorite riders to watch. Aggressive style on anything he rides

Barcia is good for the sport. Glad he’s having a good year so far. Sorta sucks it’s taken him this many years to get it figured out. He’s always had the speed and talent. He just hasn’t been able to put all the pieces together. But this year so far he has been pretty consistent. This class is way more exciting when he’s fighting for podiums.

Was gaining on Webb a couple times but he was clipping landings too much. Can’t be a tad bit short on a handfull of jumps while Coop is out front riding clean. Love Barcia’s style on the GasGas, Hoping he gets another win soon.

I hope this move to gas gas keeps him around a bit longer. He’s incredible to watch.

I'm just curious if you were there? I didn't see enough of him on the coverage to notice that.

Concur.


Barcia is kind of the Hannah of this generation without the titles. He's fun to watch, makes racing exciting and is totally controversial.

I will hate the day he retires.

Of course he had more points at this stage last year than this year I believe.

The night he tangled with Friese blew a hole in his points and Tomacs for that matter. They'd both be much closer to Webb and Roczen without that. And yes it was maybe Justin's fault for being impatient. He really struggled in Salt Lake so it remains to be seen whether he is better on the Gas Gas. I think he will be.

He should be after wins since he is out of the points chase already...... last week he was catching Deuce Coupe than backed it down to please the big bosses in Austria..... sad really......

There should be a camera on Barcia constantly, Anderson too. They're both just fun to watch ride.
Marvin & Dylan are in that category too .. when they're upright.

Three races a week !!

I dont get the lack of coverage. He is fun to watch ride. Several times he got shit starts or crashed early and I would watch him on the status board picking off people. On time he went to 5th, one time to 3rd I think. I am yelling at the TV thinking, jesus man, what does the camera crew or production guy have againts barcia. Even goes under the announcers radar.

Great ride by Barcia tonight after a poor start.

Barcia and Anderson give no F@#$s about feelings or being nice. If they can't pass you nicely, they will move you park you, or even terminate your race to get that spot. They pass like a mf on tracks you "can't pass on".
I want to see those two in a battle whether it's for 1st, 5th., or whatever. It never seems to happen. Last week i was hoping like hell Anderson would catch Barcia, so i could see the dog fight that would ensue over that last podium spot. They just never seem to wind up together. I want the stars to align and i want to see that. Just once at least before season's end.

Sensitive riders. Shocking.

Did think it was interesting how Weege broke down to this same point last year Barcia was actually a few points better on the blue bike.

I feel bad for Jason lol 🤦🏼‍♂️

What is Barcia even mad about? In that same Twitter exchange he goes on to say it was aggressive racing, which is all Racer X said it was.

|

Barcia looked great tonight man... Too bad about the start.

Picked him to win....but still satisfied with how he came thru the pack.

I can see where Justin’s coming from. I mean what was the point of racer x posting that? Obviously they wanted a reaction like “oh typical bam bam.” Every little contact or semi aggressive pass barcia makes is went over with a fine tooth comb and scrutinized.

Really strong ride again. Probably the 3rd best guy tonight, i'm pretty sure he would've been on the podium with a slightly better start.

Frustrated is more like it. Justin had the speed to challenge for a win with a decent start. And I agree with JB here. The media likes to embellish.

edit: Crush are you forgetting the incident where he lost a race worth of points? He is clearly more consistent this year and I don't know how you can argue with it.

True...but Justin has cultivated that "scrutiny" over the years. But to his credit, he's matured from a rider damn near everybody referred to as a "dirty" rider...to one who is merely "extremely aggressive".

Stellar performance by Barcia! He and Anderson are the most exciting to watch ride a motorcycle.

|

3/17/2021 7:29 AM

His starts are now the only thing holding him back from running in the top 3.

|

3/17/2021 9:15 AM

Visually, he was the fastest rider on the track. I don't know if the stopwatch would agree, but he looked to have more comfort on the dirt than even Tomac was showing. Exciting to watch, for sure. I like the 2021 version of JB.
