Troy Lee Designs GasGas Justin Barcia appeared to be headed towards third place, but his hopes were dashed when he crashed heavily off the dragon’s back after passing Justin Hill to secure the position. This was a devastating end to the day and could potentially impact the remainder of the supercross season, especially since Barcia had won his heat race last week after winning the main event. He was taken away by the medic mule and was seen holding his shoulder, with the possibility of a broken collarbone or dislocated shoulder, which could affect his performance in the upcoming outdoor season.
The KTM group had a challenging day, with Plessinger unable to ride due to his injury from last week’s crash, and Webb injured during the heat race. Additionally, both Husky riders, Stewart and Craig, were already hurt. This highlights the unforgiving nature of the sport, where everything can change in an instant.
