Geico Honda's Bogle Carries First-Win Momentum To St. Louis

Geico Honda's Bogle Carries First-Win Momentum To St. Louis

GEICO Honda rider Justin Bogle is riding high after scoring his first career Monster Energy Supercross win last weekend, but the young upstart remains grounded because he's aware of all the hard work he had to put in for that victory.

Bogle, who will be gunning for his second 250cc title in a row this weekend at Edward Jones Dome, suffered injuries to his shoulder and back in the off-season that forced a hard road back.

"December and January were rough months for me," Bogle said. "I had some pretty good injuries, but to come back from that and finally get my first win in Toronto was great."

Bogle was especially appreciative of the hard work his trainer put in to help him get back on track.

"My trainer Ryan Fedorow, I owe that guy so much -- not just for my career but also my life in general," Bogle said. "He got me back on track and focused in the right direction. He's been with me every step of the way these past few years, through the ups and the downs.

"There has been a lot of downs with the injuries and it's been tough. I've got to thank that guy."

Bogle's Toronto victory also put him squarely in the championship hunt in the 250 East Series; he's currently five points behind leader Martin Davalos and one point behind Adam Cianciarulo with three races remaining in the season.

"I have some momentum coming in, and I just want to keep building on that and keep getting good starts," Bogle said. "That's the main thing I've been stressing because it's the most important thing to me."

Bogle's start was crucial to his win in Toronto because he got the holeshot and pulled away from the field throughout the 20-lap race.

Perhaps as important as the start was the shot in the arm the victory gave him. The 21-year-old always knew he could win, but getting to victory lane proved it.

"It always helps once you get that first win, once you get that monkey off your back," Bogle said. "I've known that I could do it for a while, but circumstances have kind of played a role in some things happening and guys are going really fast. It's been tough, but I've definitely got some confidence going right now, for sure.

"I'm carrying some momentum into St. Louis. It is a fun race and the track has good dirt. It's close to home in Oklahoma, so it's close to a lot of family. I have a lot of family in Missouri, so that's always an enjoyable race. I'm looking forward to that one."

Teammate Matt Bisceglia is looking forward to St. Louis but for different reasons. He was fast in Toronto, but a crash in his heat and in the main event hampered his finish.

"I'm happy with the progress I made last week, and I'm going to try to progress more this week," Bisceglia said. "That's all I can do, is get ready for St. Louis. It's not going to be easy, but I'm going to put in the work."

Bisceglia, though, chalked up Toronto as a learning experience.

"Lessons learned, for sure," Bisceglia said. "I was just going for it on the first lap. I wanted to get into third and I was going for it. I wanted to get in that podium position. It kind of bit me, but there's nothing I can do about it now except go on to the next event."

FOX Sports 1 will carry all of the heat races, semifinals, LCQs, and both main events live from St. Louis beginning at 7:30 p.m., Saturday.
