Not really a fan of his but I thought he rode well that second moto till he fell and had a pretty good pace, was maybe holding Tomac and Anderson up a little bit but nevertheless he looked good IMO.

I'm not a fan of some of the guys decisions on track but the way things have gone for him over the past few years I hope he can keep it up and maybe sneak a moto win or two by the end of this, he definitely has the potential to.

I wanted Anderson to put him in the cheap seats for the win, just because he could, not because he needed to, just so Barcia got to be on the other end of how he normally rides.

He was holding everyone up, as soon as he went down Tomac ,Anderson and checked out from Marvin and Peick , but it was a good race up till that point .

Baggett putting himself on the floor spoiled what could have been a barn burner.

I was so bummed to see him crash. Love him or hate him, mx is more entertaining when Barcia is ripping. I thought for sure he'd get passed after a lap or 2 but he rode well and I hope it continues.

This.

I am not a mega-fan of Barcia. But there is no doubt that he brings excitement (and sometimes controversy) to the spectacle. His riding style is spectacular(!), whether or not it is effective.

As for people saying that he rides a wide bike and holds up "faster" riders -- it's called "racing", not "time-trialing".

I'm glad to see him riding better. He should have a pretty good showing next week. He was on the Podium last year at Southwick, I'd say he has a pretty good shot at landing there again.

Tomac and Blake are very focused during the week, and unless a competitor is 'willing' to do the same he won't consistently beat those two. Barchia rides in my area during the week here in NC, but I can't tell you if he's that committed or not, but if I was forced to give an opinion I'd say no, and yes I'm aware of past injuries. I know when he first came to the team Johnny O was flying in to help him, but now I have no idea if anyone is pushing him to stay motivated or how the Omara regime went. Putting on the blinders ...stay away from the sports cars....no air-conditioner...work hard and serious with diet, at the track and gym...really want to win...the results come.

I want him to win for Coy and Joe Gibbs sake and team.

Agreed!

The kid proved he still has the speed, I personally thought he didn't have it on the 450, now if he can keep building his confidence back up!

He's always been a douche. When Anderson got by him the first time yesterday he went for the takeout. That's all he ever does. I have no idea why guys continue to put up with it. Also, I would argue that he is the worst performing rider at the factory level right now. Can't imagine any team that would want to sign his ass next year. Not worth the money when there are so many others to choose from.

Well rides like yesterday are the exact reason he will get a ride, sure he didn't get the job done in the end but he was up front and got a lot of TV time. As for some of his antics I think he really needs to clean that up but I didn't see anything malicious yesterday, just someone not willing to give up a spot easily, can't fault him for that.

|

7/2/2017 8:23 AM

Yesterday's smooth track fit right into his track-hogging MO. Like him or not (I'm definitely not the biggest fan), he did an INCREDIBLE job holding off some of the best and fastest riders on the track yesterday. So mad props to him for that. It really was incredible watching him and Tomac react to each other on each turn.

much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

What race were you watching? First moto Anderson passed him with no issue and the second moto Barcia went down and Anderson rode by him. I didn't see Barcia try to take out a single rider at Redbud. As for the worst performing factory rider, just check the results and see which factory riders he finished ahead of.

5. Justin Barcia (Suzuki) 7-6
6. Josh Grant (Kawasaki) 10-5
7. Cole Seely (Honda) 6-9
8. Justin Bogle (Suzuki) 9-7
9. Dean Wilson (Husqvarna) 8-8
10. Weston Peick (Suzuki) 14-4
11. Christian Craig (Honda) 5-12
12. Trey Canard (KTM) 13-11
14. Martin Davalos (Husqvarna) 15-13
17. Broc Tickle (Suzuki) 18-17
38. Cooper Webb (Yamaha) 38-37

Those results are from one race (his best race). I don't feel like pulling his average finishes from SX and MX to this point but I'm sure it's not very good at all.

I enjoyed seeing him up front. Maybe the start of things to come. BamBam is fun to watch ride and no dirtier than Ando.
When he rode for team USA at des nations no team wins but I felt like he put his heart into it and out performed "others" thus earning my respect!

You are the classic benchracer

You have no idea what Barcia has had to go through to get back to where he is now, and until you know the effort that is taken to even be running the pace of the best mx riders in the world you should just shut the hell up!!! It's basically a slap in the face to a pro that works his arse off to get back to where he wants to be.

I hate reading posts like yours, it's an embarrassment for you to even take shots at a guy like Barcia or any pro for that matter!!!!

Maybe you should re-read...no swipe taken. Furthermore you don't know me, and also no-one from my era during the early 80s here in NC in district 29 trained harder than me...no one...completely and totally guarantee that, and also during the early 90s when I did vet pro in the area.and I had no financial help whatsoever...ever, not even from my parents.
All the best to Barchia, and like I said first and foremost I want success for Coy and Joe Gibbs sake.

I'd much rather see Anderson on the other end of how he normally rides. He's the dirtiest rider in the field by a country mile.
Loves to dish it out, but can't take it back. Even when there was nothing in it. He's a pole smoker!



Don't recall having seen Bam Bam do anything like that. It was as weak as piss!!

Kroc having a teary after Bam Bam show's him some style. "Almost killed us both". He was nowhere near him.


Now that was SICK!!

You want pro athletes to perform near beast mode status every time out? Get rid of multi year contracts and go 12 months with performance incentives.
