Barr managed his first world championship medal, a bronze, in 2009. His highest ranking on the World Cup tour was 3rd during the 2007-08 season. Barr won the first ever FIS world cup ski cross event held in North America at Deer Valley in 2008. The 2010 Vancouver Olympics will be taking place in his hometown of Whistler, British Columbia. Davey Barr was not originally selected by the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association to attend those games; however, he attended as a replacement for Brady Leman of Calgary, Alberta. Leman himself was a replacement for Dave Duncan who broke his right clavicle bone during a training run.

Barr qualified for the 1/8 finals with a time of 1:14:98, ranking him 25th out of 33 skiers. There, he avoided a near-collision between Simon Stickl of Germany and Anders Rekdal of Denmark to finish second. In the quarterfinals, Barr fought against Kerr, only to surpass him on the first turn and remain second throughout the heat. The semifinals saw Barr struggle to retain his position in third, sending him to the B-Final. Barr trailed the pack for the grand majority of the race, until a fall by Slovenia's Filip Flisar caused Australia's Scott Kneller to ski off-course, allowing him to place sixth overall.
