Justin Barcia was docked one position and Justin Bogle was disqualified after things got heated between the TLD Red Bull GasGas points leader and the HEP Suzuki rider in the 450SX Main Event at San Diego Round 3 Supercross.
Barcia run into Bogle first… They were battling for 10th at the time… Bogle was a lap down later on when he got into Barcia and took him out..
Which crash came first? Bogle into Barcia or Barcia into Bogle? I suppose Bogle has been DQ’d for some kind of revenge on Barcia.— Federico Benedusi (@federicob95) January 23, 2022
The official AMA results stated: “(51) – Penalized 1 position, (19) – Disqualified.”
Barcia is now now down to fourth in the series after all the drama as a consequence of a rare bad start for the aggressive rider, but he is still right there with no real harm done, only three points off new leader, Eli Tomac.
Barcia said: “San Diego is a wrap and honestly, for a bad day, it was a good day. I got an average start in the main but I was riding good and then I ended up having a crash. I had to re-group and put a charge all the way back up to eighth. Ninth definitely wasn’t where I wanted to finish but I salvaged it. I felt like I rode really well, just came up a bit short of where I wanted to be. All-in-all, I’m looking forward to getting back to Anaheim, a place that treats me well, and I’m ready to get back on the podium!”
