Upward Mobility On The Minds Of Geico Honda's 'Killer Bs' 250 Contingent

The "Killer Bs" from the GEICO Honda 250 camp -- Bogle, Bell, and Bisceglia -- arrive at the GEICO Motorcycle Budds Creek National intent on improving their positions in the Motocross championship standings.

Justin Bogle, the reigning 250SX East champion, continues to attack the top-three riders in the outdoor series, both on the track and in the standings. He's hoping a big weekend in Maryland will help his current fourth-place ranking as the 12-event season shifts to its second half.

"I just need to keep riding how I have been all season," Bogle said. "You always need good starts and if I can do that in each moto, then I believe I can be up there battling for wins and podiums. It'd be great to get up there at a GEICO-sponsored race, for sure.

"I'm continuing to learn stuff every weekend, so it's all good. At RedBud last weekend I felt really strong but had three different crashes during the day that hindered my results. I need to eliminate mistakes like that as much as possible. If I go out there and try to win every moto, then the points will play out how they play out. I didn't think about it too much in Supercross and I'm not going to worry about it now. It's better to just ride."

After an injury-filled first two seasons with the GEICO Honda team, lightning-fast rider Zach Bell put an emphasis on staying upright and finishing each moto this outdoor season. So far the formula is working, with Bell earning points in nine of 12 motos contested, giving him a 13th-place slotting.

"I'm feeling better and better each weekend," Bell said. "I haven't had the best of luck at times, but when you are riding further back in the pack the likelihood of bad things happening definitely goes up. I need to get some more good starts and ride like I know how and I'll get on the box.

"I'm getting to a point where I'm feeling really comfortable on my GEICO Honda. I just gotta start racing like I used to a little bit and kinda go for it but at the same time keep my main focus of staying off the ground and taking as many points as I can each weekend."

Just five points back in 14th place in the rankings is Matt Bisceglia, who returned to action last Saturday at RedBud after back-to-back races where he earned no points.

"I haven't had as much time as I usually would on the bike lately from fighting an injury, but I feel like I'm going to have a few good days of riding this week and a strong weekend overall," Bisceglia said. "I'm really excited for Budds Creek. Everybody has told me that RedBud and Budds Creek are the two best tracks on the schedule. I've heard nothing but good things about Budds Creek. I'm definitely ready to go there.

"I wasn't able to put in a lot of time on the bike between Highpoint and RedBud, so I'll ride as much as I can these next few days. I'll be more prepared this weekend, straight from the get-go, by being able to ride more ahead of time. I'm excited and ready to go."

MAVTV will carry the first motos live from 1-3 p.m. ET, Saturday. The second motos will air live on NBCSN from 3-5 p.m. ET, also on Saturday. A highlight show will be broadcast on NBCSN from 11 p.m.-midnight ET, Thursday, July 17.
