Justin Barcia has told his fans via Instagram the Monster Energy Yamaha rider won't be attending the AUS-X Open in Sydney.
Barcia was due to compete against Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed, Jason Anderson and a field of Australia’s top SX riders in the one-off event 10 November in Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena but has decided to withdraw, stating “a pressing issue has come up which will keep me from attending.”

With the fast approaching supercross season… I wanted to let all my Australian fans know in advance that unfortunately I will not be able to attend the Sydney @sxopensupercross . I am really disappointed I won’t be able to make it as I was really looking forward to it but a pressing issue has come up which will keep me from attending. Sorry too my Australian fans & thank you very much for the continued support. JB51
