“Star did some sketchy stuff” Those guys have some fast bikes and riders, but “sketchy stuff” seems to be a pretty common theme.

...the good thing here is that now Justin will be riding with motors that fit his "bang off the rev limiter" style of riding.


I don't think he will race one, but I sure hope to see him out training on a 350 at 13400 RPM...

Basically tried to steal thrasher from KTM so they let barcia go to gas gas in return for thrasher. Basically a trade

Did they REALLY NEED any more riders? Jeezus

MXA really needs to hire somebody who doesn't use MS paint to do their "leaks" lmao

Please give up on the 350 talk, he would NOT be better off a a friggin 350 ffs.

Sounds like they put up big money to get him out of his contract and Yamaha got some revenge that TLD is not happy about.

Wow MXA blowing out their sources as well. Top notch journalisming there

He revs the shit out of a 450. How is revving the shit out of a 350 make you a faster rider? I agree, he'll always ride 450.

It'll be interesting to see if Barcia has to dump his A-Stars & Shoei gear deals for the TLD deal. Seems like most other teams at least their 450 guys have their own gear contracts...but TLD has always had their guys dress alike, like PC. I think somebody here speculated that the A-Star deal Barcia has might be over $750K.

I'd have a hard time seeing a team whose main sponsor is a gear company allow a rider to wear another brand. We'll see though I guess.

Sounds like every pair of Tech10's we buy Barcia is getting payeeed.

I'll say one thing...I thought the Black/Blue Yamaha looked pretty good, but those red GasGas bikes are kinda fugly. unsure

MXA being recognized as a source is the most news worthy content in this thread

this bike looks so good. refreshing to see non-black rims again but they should put red hubs on the race bikes.

Agreed. Something smells fishy...

I've heard thrasher to star isn't happening now either.

Interesting choice in trainers.
Never knew that.

Hows that going to work with aldon?

less engine inertia? engine that produce its power in the top rpm range ? lighter bike ? yea how could that possibly make you faster? i think he will try the 350, but like all the top guys they use the tourqe of the 450 so much so he will probably race the 450,
