Despite Falls, Bogle Leads GEICO Honda 250 Crew

Despite Falls, Bogle Leads GEICO Honda 250 Crew

Despite the party atmosphere of the Red Bull RedBud National, the trio of 250 riders from the GEICO Motorcycle camp didn't feel much like celebrating after a crash-filled Saturday in southwest Michigan.

Reigning 250SX East champion Justin Bogle had a promising start dashed by a few tip-overs in Moto 2 and finished ninth in the overall standings. Teammates Matt Bisceglia (13-14 for 12th overall) and Zach Bell (11-17 for 14th) also fell off in the second race, with all three riders wishing they had done better by day's end.

"Today was looking to be a great day," Bogle said. "I was running towards the front in the first moto when I went down. I got up quick and raced up to third and landed in third for most of the rest of the laps, but I went down again and ended up fifth. Still not bad and definitely something to build on for Moto 2.

"In the second moto I had a great start and was leading for the first few laps but then I went down again. We were all running really close and a bunch of guys got past me. What can I say? The track was pretty gnarly and unfortunately it got me today."

Bell saw his day in a positive light despite his own struggles. Although he didn't finish as well as he had hoped, Bell reports that he's learning more about what he needs from his bike to get to the front.

"Practice went great," he said. "Unfortunately I had not-so-great starts in both motos and ended up really fighting in both of them. The first moto I came from the very back and ended up 11th, which I was happy with.

"In the second moto I ended up falling and stalling the bike, which put me way back. I was working my way up through the crowd but the best I could do was 17th. I had a lot of fun today though, and I'm happy to be in one piece and going home safe to work hard for next weekend."

Finally, Bisceglia returned after being sidelined from an injury in last weekend's race in Tennessee. He plans to work on his fitness to improve upon the results from this weekend.

"I got the holeshot in the first moto and led a lap, which felt so good," he said. "I really worked hard but just couldn't keep up the pace the other guys were riding. I have only ridden twice since my injury at High Point, so I think I was probably not 100 percent like I should be. I am going to go home and up my training with my dad so I can be back to where I was, if not better."

The group will be back in action next Saturday at the GEICO Motorcycle Budds Creek National in Maryland.
