Damn. Kind of a weird deal. Wish Justin the best , but maybe a change of scenery will do him good. He has the talent and speed....he just hasn't been able to find it very often as of late.

I wish him the best whatever he decides to do...I had hope the change from Team Honda (as it was back then i.e. no HRC involvement) to JGR would be better for him, but apart from the occasional result it hasnt really worked.

Hope he lands on his feet with a good ride and gets it turned around. The more fast guys running up front, the better.

I think the guy has to much fire in his belly to just throw in the towel. Hopefully he took note at what Dean did this year. Go Re-earn your spot Justin.

Kinda sad but I hope he gets a good ride. I feel like he was a damn good rider back on the geico honda but never had that luck as a JGR rider.

I would guess that a sprinter van might be in his future.

A fast and competitive Barcia is good for the sport.

I'm personally not much of a fan, but as a fan of the sport I hope he can get some momentum going again, somehow someway.

He's done. Stamp it. Love his energy but I don't see him buckling down like Dean

Don't count on it... He's got something brewing. If it works out, your stamp will be worthless and Justin will be on a very good bike.

I'd like to see this. Dude is very fun to watch when things are clicking. Just had a couple rough years.

A break, collect his thoughts and a fresh perspective will do him the world of good.
There's no way he won't be without a ride, he has the potential, it's just all become a bit stagnant of late.
Good luck, JB.

Anyone recall his injuries this year? I forgot what he went through, but he does not seem to be looking to go away, which is great. I love his style and videos, can only dream of riding like that when I grow up!

I've always liked him and his rip the throttle off style. Hope he can find a good team and get some results next year.

That's actually a great idea. His riding style would fit that 350 better than just about anyone I can think of. Why Husky and KTM don't push that bike more , I have no idea.

I think a bit of a break will be good for him, hopefully he can get a ride and show the ability we saw when he was on the 250. He's not done.

RMATVMC? State of the Art 450 could be what Barcia needs to succeed. It made all the difference for BB.

if you think barcia is done racing, you're probably a liberal and your wife is a feminist

Jeffro I believe that the 350 is one of the best sellers all ready Why push something that sells itself

Justin is so talented. I really hope he can get his mojo back. Back in 2009 it really seemed like he was going to be the next big thing in moto.

They do not really have to. They practically sell themselves.

He will land a ride. He's one of the few guys who have the speed to run inside the top 5 consistently.

He still needs help and I mean quite a lot of it

Compare his riding to others at the front and he's several seconds slower than he should be
