Justin Barcia heads into the new year with high expectations for himself and the team. Coming out explosive, in true fashion, at last year’s season opener, Barcia led GASGAS Factory Racing to its first win in the premier class at Houston SX, following it up with three more podium finishes in supercross. He etched another “first” for the brand outdoors, claiming victory at the Spring Creek National and ultimately making four additional podium appearances throughout the summer. Check out his weapon for 2022.
As the 2022 season approaches – in which Justin Barcia will turn 30 – Barcia has signed his extension which will see him push his collaboration with Troy Lee Designs GasGas until at least 2023.
Justin Barcia: “In that first year with the team, we really enjoyed ourselves, but we also worked very hard. We won two rounds, it was great, but our goal is still to win the championship, and that’s what we will work for in 2022. For 2022, the team has changed a lot. I have a new mechanic, Ollie Stone, who I am very happy with and we have also brought some new guys to the team, they are doing a great job. The team is really great and it makes the job so much easier when we can have fun with our team. I am happy to be with the team until 2023. Obviously the goal is to end my career here. We’ll see when that happens… I’m really grateful to be in this team and to have fun with them “
Some great Simon Cudby images as always.
