In a statement that was released late last week, Justin Barcia mentioned that he had set his sights on Salt Lake City for his return. The wrist was not healing as expected, to begin with at least, hence why he delayed his comeback. In a sudden turn of events though, Barcia has announced that he will be returning in Minneapolis on Saturday night.
The news was broken with the social media post below, which shows Justin Barcia ripping around the Zipp Speed factory. The Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing awning will be full from this point on so, with that in mind, Josh Hill is not expected to continue his fill-in stint.
