American Justin Barcia is a two-time winner of the AMA Supercross Lites East title - in 2011, he appeared on the podium at every round of the nine race series, and in 2012 he earned an incredible six race wins and wrapped up the championship in New Orleans with one round remaining. For 2013 and 2014 he will ride for Team Honda Muscle Milk in both the AMA Supercross Championship and AMA Motocross Championship aboard a factory-prepared Honda CRF450R race machine.
Justin, known to his many fans as ‘Bam Bam’ or ‘The Wild One’, made the move to the professional ranks in 2009 and was second in supercross in his first full season in 2010, posting a total of five podium finishes. His other successes in his career so far include winning the Monster Energy Cup in 2012.
He was born in Paterson, New Jersey, and began riding dirt bikes at the age of five and racing two years later. During his days as an amateur, Barcia won over 25 national titles, including four from the prestigious Loretta Lynn's AMA Amateur Motocross Championship.
Despite starting racer later than many other professional motocross and supercross riders, Justin’s pure determination to win and never-give-up attitude have allowed him to make big progress in a short space of time. With his spectacular, wide open riding style, Barcia often lives up to his nickname, letting nothing block his path to the front of the field and the top of the standings.
