Spring Creek Leaves GEICO Honda 250 Riders Wanting More

It was a difficult day in Minnesota for the GEICO Honda 250cc team, with Zach Bell leading the group with an 11th overall finish in Saturday's Spring Creek National at Spring Creek Motocross Park.

In only his second full season on a 250 bike, Bell left Spring Creek with a pair of consistent finishes, a 10th in the first moto and 12th in the second.

"I had some issues with the suspension and couldn't get it set up right," Bell said. "I pushed through the day and it was a good finish for me.

"After all these setbacks in the past I just want to make it through every race and build on that. This weekend was better than how the last few weekends have gone, where I had some falls and it put me in the back early on."

Also in his second full season in the 250 Pro Motocross Series, Matt Bisceglia felt he had an off day on the hilly course at Spring Creek Motorsports Park. Ending his day with an overall 14th finish following a 16th in the first moto and 11th in the second, Bisceglia showed signs of improvement after a recent elbow injury.

"The first moto especially, I fell back quite a ways and rode really bad," Bisceglia said. "The second moto wasn't great but was a little bit better for me. I felt like I was a little bit stronger toward the end and was able to make a couple of moves."

Teammate Justin Bogle also wasn't thrilled with his overall finish of 15th in the Spring Creek National. Great starts in both motos put him in contention for podium finishes, but Bogle came up just short after a sixth-place finish in Moto 1 and a late-race wreck in Moto 2 left him 32nd.

"The first moto I got up front and got a good start," Bogle said. "My bike is incredible off the start and has been helping me get good starts all year, so I got up front and kind of got tight and went back to sixth."

After jumping out to an early lead in the second moto, Bogle wasn't able to hold the position, battling with Cooper Webb halfway through the race. While he still looked to be in podium contention, a wreck left Bogle unable to finish the race.

"The second moto I got a great start from the outside and got to the lead from fourth," Bogle said. "Then I started making mistakes after a couple of laps and the bike got tight again. Unfortunately, I had a pretty good crash late in the moto and didn't end up finishing.

"All in all I rode good in the second moto; I just need to work on some things."

The GEICO Honda 250cc team will look to regroup and prepare for the next race on the 2014 Pro Motocross schedule, the Washougal National, July 26, in Washougal, Wash.
