Tonight at the Genova SX in Italy, Toyota/JGR Yamaha's Justin Barcia was battling for the lead with Christophe Pourcel when Barcia ran into Pourcel, going down in the process. Eli Tomac was close behind and landed on Barcia in the head, shoulder area. The race was red flagged and reports are that Barcia was taken off on a medical stretcher. Some media outlets are reporting that Barcia suffered a concussion and possible shoulder injury. Racer X has been unable to verify Barcia's injuries at this time. We will update as soon as more information is available.
