Geico Honda Rider Bogle Moving Up In Championship Points Chase

Another solid performance by reigning 250SX East champion Justin Bogle helped the GEICO Honda rider move up one spot in the Motocross championship points. Bogle completed both of Saturday's motos in fourth place for an overall fourth-place finish. That's also the position he now holds in the championship chase at the one-third mark of the season.

"Overall, today was very positive for me," Bogle said. "I did get to lead a few laps in Moto 1, which I haven't done in a long time on an outdoor course. You learn a lot when you lead laps and I think we made some great progress with that.

"In the second moto I had to work a little harder for my position without as great of a start but I got the same result, so that was cool. I'm very happy with the progress that we are making.

"I'm going to head into Tennessee with my head high. I really like that place and had a great race there last year. My training and team are all where they should be, so I am ready to keep moving forward."

Teammate Zach Bell also sees his day as a positive despite not getting the result that he wanted. Finishing the first moto in 15th and the second moto in 11th gave him an overall position of 13th. Bike complications and deteriorating track conditions were the biggest challenges he faced.

"The first moto started out great and I was coming through the pack when I encountered a problem with my bike setup in the ruts," Bell said. "I fell three times, so I'm happy to be safe. After all that, I definitely had to fight for 15th place.

"Second moto I almost had the holeshot and maintained a good position for the beginning, but I was so exhausted from my first moto that I just kept falling back. The track was definitely gnarly today and it got extremely hot towards the end. I'm just happy I finished strong and we fixed our issues from the first race. I can't wait for Muddy Creek."

Fellow GEICO Honda rider Matt Bisceglia had the most difficult day and plans to put the whole weekend behind him as quickly as possible. Bad luck from the start of the weekend would not let up for the rookie in his first visit to Mt. Morris.

"The weekend started with one delayed flight, one missed flight, and one cancelled flight," Bisceglia said. "I got in really late last night and had difficulty getting to the track today. I missed half of my first practice, so I had to rely on only one practice basically.

"Two laps into the first moto I crashed and ended up with a concussion. I was in a decent position around eighth when it happened. I honestly do not remember any of it and still am a little shaken up now. From what people tell me it was pretty bad. Rules do not let you continue to race with a head injury, so I was done for the day. I'm happy to be physically OK, and I really can't wait to get outta here and move on to the next race."

The team will race again in two weeks at Muddy Creek in Eastern Tennessee.
