Pair Of Top-10 Finishes For Geico Honda Motocross Team

After taking home the 250SX East Supercross championship two weeks ago, GEICO Honda rider Justin Bogle kicked off the 12-race Lucas Oil Motocross Championship series with a solid sixth-place overall result Saturday at the Red Bull Glen Helen National.

Bogle finished fifth and ninth in the day's two motos, placing him just ahead of teammate Matt Bisceglia in the overall rankings. Bisceglia carded an 11th- and a seventh-place result to close opening day seventh overall.

"Both motos started off really well for me," Bogle said. "The first moto I had a bad start but rode well through the rest of it, made it up to third, but got a little tired and fell back to fifth. It was a solid first moto for me.

"In the second moto I pulled the holeshot because my GEICO Honda was a rocket ship and incredibly fast. I got passed, crashed on the hill, and ended up in a mudhole on a pass back. I got up and was pretty far back but ended up back in the top 10 for the finish. I feel really good, and there are lots of positives going into Hangtown next weekend. I'm really excited about this year."

Bisceglia kept himself in close contention all day with strong rides in both motos.

"I got a couple good starts today and that helped," Bisceglia said. "In the first moto I was in third for the first three laps. I fell off the pace a little and ended up 11th. The second moto, however, I didn't really get a great start and was back in the pack, but I battled a couple guys, got by them, and finished seventh, so it was good.

"The track was pretty gnarly today and it was brutal making it through. Then there was a huge crash at the start of the second moto, which was brutal because it's such a high-speed area. You don't want to see anyone crash there. I was lucky and stayed up.

"I'm happy with my finish but I need to improve on my speed. That's what I'll work on next. Also, I'm really looking forward to Hangtown because I have a bunch of friends coming down from Oregon, which is where I grew up, so it will be a good time."

Although he started the day with an encouraging ninth-place result in Moto 1, Zach Osborne's fortunes took a regrettable turn later when he crashed early in Moto 2, which removed him from the rest of the day's activities.

"I rode pretty well after a so-so start (in Moto 1) and got into fifth or sixth place," Osborne said. "But then I tipped over though and went back to like 15th. After that, I had a pretty solid ride and was able to get back to ninth. I actually was feeling really good at the end of that race.

"In the second race I got caught up in a little first-turn crash and hurt my thumb. We don't know the severity of the injury yet but hopefully I can get in to see a specialist right away and get back out here soon."

Zach Bell also had a few incidents that prevented him from showing off his potential. The young rider finished in 17th and 26th in the day's two motos.

"The first race was going really well; in fact I got the holeshot," Bell said. "I was riding my own pace and getting into the groove of everything. Jeremy Martin got around me and we ended up battling back and forth for a while, which was fun. At one point, I was going down the big hill and a rock got stuck in my chain and that stalled out the bike. I hit false neutral a few times, and it just knocked the wind out of me and I fell back.

"The second moto just kind of was a so-so race, but I'm glad I'm healthy and feeling good. After being out for a while, it was good to be back on the bike and avoid injury."

The entire GEICO Honda 250 Motocross team will look to make progress when the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship series heads to the Hangtown National next Saturday in Sacramento, Calif.
