I can’t remember the details but Barcia welded in his reputation as an a&&hole when he torpedoed a lapped privateer on the last lap of an LCQ.

I thought I saw Jason weigant posted it as well. If it’s true, dq’s are not enough. Now barcia ramped it up to hurting stewart’s knee, and Dylan’s back.

Zach also had spinal bifida from birth which contributed to his early retirement.

That's no excuse for Barcia's tactics, though. It's one thing to ride hard and aggressive, but it's entirely different to endanger those around you.

How many other riders can claim they have injured as many people as Barcia? He broke Bowers's leg, caused this back injury for Ferrandis, these aren't small injuries.

Barcia is a fucking hazard out there and something really needs to be done about it, he just doesn’t get it.
It must have been a huge impact and that’s why he was DQ’d
But cutting the track and injuring someone needs a harsher penalty..
Look how chase and Eli raced each other all year FOR THE TITLE!!

Cancel Culture has taken a strong footing in MX/SX.

Sad.

Saw the video from Barcias bike... that incident was not on him.

...but gather up your pitchforks....there has to be a villain to kill.

Just wrong! It doesn’t matter if you t-bone a guy, v-bone a guy(someone called it that), rubbed him, or kicked him. If there’s contact and the rider goes down with a back injury, you need to be held accountable. End of story. This sport is dangerous enough without people taking eachother out. I personally think it’s sucks for barcia, in that one day he will look back at his career and realize he was never a championship contender but a championship ender.

Yea cause that one perspective tells the whole story 🙄.

And how is it not on barcia. DF made a clean move to the inside and barcia b-lined it straight across the track to take DF out.

Maybe you should take up another sport more fitting.... something like curling where the risk of incidental injury is next to nil.



I can't believe what I read on a "core" MX board these days. I grieve for this sport if this mentality is it's future.

Barcia doesn't have the capability to self reflect.

Video shows nothing, really. Especially not where Barcia was looking.

Barcia's DNF, warranted or not, was brought on by his continuously shitty behavior. No one to blame but himself for making it an easy decision for officials.

I like a lot of what you post, but I'm sick of people making like someone having a problem with straight-up dirty riding means they're a pussy or they need to go play tennis or some shit or they're not as macho man randy savage as the next guy who just wants to watch Moto Demolition Derby and doesn't think any rules are needed at all.

Fuck that, it's not cancel culture, it's being responsible for your actions, having some class and being a decent sportsman who respects their competition and themselves.

I think it was in Indy, Barcia on a 250, where he roosted the medical team while they attended to a downed rider, who I think Barica had taken out. Then Barcia cried when they interviewed him.

I've hated him ever since, with a passion. He's a punk on the track. I'm surprised DeCoster even hired him.

I’m staying away from the original argument other than to say that I hope Dylan can recover 100% as he is one of my favorites. On the other side, I respect the curling shoutout. Love that damn sport

Lotta cognitive bias in the "lynch Barcia" threads.

See the same with Webb and other "controversial" riders. Just like politics these days. "I'm right...you're wrong".

What I see in Barcia is a guy full of heart that wants every position he has...whatever that position is. He's a racer.
That's not to say he isn't aggressive. It'll be a sad day when JB retires.

Just imagine if this guy were racing today?



People would lose their shit and go blind from rage.


Like I said earlier....people need their "villain" to string up.

Proceed.

This is a terrible idea, this is exactly what causes sharp and quick reactions that have potential to ruin a riders chance of a living. Obviously I understand Dylan’s current situation is in those same parameters at the moment. They need to start hitting riders with large fines that benefit the lower part of the field.

Sounds like you are advocating for "Roller Ball" racing. Just slam into people, whip the bike into them over a jump (Barcia's already done that), just go straight into people. Maybe there will be added points on how many riders you can take out during a race.

I'm going to tell a litte story here that I haven't told the general public. I'm telling it now because of your handle "Magoofan". I was right behind him at CMC Goldenstate race at Saddleback- maybe 1979 or '80. It was the first lap so I wasn't behind him for long. He pulled away pretty quickly, but anyway we were on the inside of left hand turn that went slighty downhill and a rider fell on the outside as you exited the turn. Chandler change his line and swung wide and ran him over in a what I considered intentional. There was no reason to go out wide from the position we were in.

I’d imagine you guys would be singing a different toon if barcia took out sexton or tomac. If he put you guys on the ground I’d imagine you’d think differently. How much is your back worth. Last time I checked, you only get one.

I understand where some of the anger comes from, but can anyone prove intent?

As Magoofan pointed out above, can you imagine how much trouble Rex Staten would be in nowadays? He, and a host of others. I wish the best for Dylan!

Sad.

Omg…you are fucking dumb!! Why? Because the body of evidence is beyond enormous that bambam does it on purpose! If you race and watched that video then you KNOW if you gun it after being pushed wide there then you will hit the guy in the next corner. Anyone saying it just happened too fast must have never raced. I know what will happen if I pin it there….you can sure as hell bet barcia knew…and did it on purpose. God …some people are so fucking stupid! It’s was a 100% on purpose take out. barcia has a hell of a lot more control over his bike then any of us….and I would have/could have avoided that contact. He’s not incompetent….he’s a fucking cheap rider….

Newsflash dude. Motorcycles are dangerous. If you're worried about your back or any other body part (even your life)....don't ride one.

Everyone accepts the risk when they swing a leg over a bike. Racing shit happens...

Keep riding that lynch-mob bandwagon.

I'm not advocating for "roller-ball" racing at all. This is a "contact" sport, always has been. You fight for position...

Barcia is the easy "scapegoat" for peoples focus. When he's gone, it'll be someone else.

Cool history that you were able to race with one of the greats. Cool That sure doesn't sound like something Magoo would have done intentionally....it doesn't fit his personality (not that I ever knew him personally).

Like I said before, this sport is dangerous enough without having someone out there purposely putting you on the ground, HARD. I don’t know why you don’t get that. There’s a big difference between riding aggressive and maybe someone tipping over. Versus riding aggressive and hurting people.

I watched Rex race, he was aggressive as hell but he wasn’t a takeout tool like JB. And if JB was to meet Rex on the track, Rex would make a sniveling bitch out of JB, on the track or in the pits.

Post a reply to: Thanks Barcia..
