This weekend’s ninth round of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship at Unadilla will see Justin Barcia return to racing, marking his first outdoor appearance of the 2023 season.

Barcia, who was recently on location at the GASGAS Spice It Up Festival in Italy to help introduce the 2024 range, will be back on track across the final three rounds of the outdoor season and is excited to build momentum over the course of the next three weeks.

Justin was initially injured toward the end of April in Nashville’s AMA Supercross Championship round, with complications delaying his return. Despite sitting out the final stages of the 450SX season and missing the majority of Pro Motocross, the 31-year-old currently sits 10th in the combined SuperMotocross World Championship (SMX) standings.

“It’s been a process, for sure, a lot to think about,” Barcia said. “We’re past the injury now after two surgeries, lots of training and a lot of recovery, so I’m definitely excited to come back at my home race in New York for the fans and myself, just to get out there. There are no expectations set because I’ve been off for a lot of months, so I just want to go out there and have fun and build. Obviously, as a racer, you always want to be competitive, but I just need to get back to the races and enjoy being around the team, as well as my family and friends there. Unadilla’s going to be a cool race!”
