According to a post on his Twitter account, Monster Energy/Knich/Factory Yamaha’s Justin Barcia lost his rear brake last night in the 450SX main event in San Diego.

Barcia rounded the first lap of the main event in fifth and worked his way up to third by lap seven. A few laps later, Barcia began to slide backward and eventually finished eighth.

"Dang was having a good night and got into something and lost my rear brake onto next weekend bikes awesome teams awesome ready for Dallas."
