Things to be thankful for

If you’re fortunate enough to have both a dirt bike and the leisure time to cruise the Internet looking for moto stuff, odds are good that you have lots of things to be thankful for this year. But here’s one more thing to add to the list: scary crashes that end with the rider being OK, like this rowdy get-off by Justin Barcia at the Genova SX.

Word is that Barcia was discharged from the hospital and has made his way back home — a great outcome after this kind of incident. So the next time you avoid injury after a gnarly stack — or, better yet, you just pull out of the swap entirely — take a moment to be thankful for your good fortune. I bet Barcia is doing the same after this one!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
