Bogle Once Again Leads GEICO Honda 250 Corps With Podium Finish In Washington

Reigning 250SX East champion Justin Bogle continued his attack on the Motocross front-runners with an overall fifth-place finish at Saturday's Washougal National, highlighted by a third-place result in Moto 2.

"I came in here pretty wounded from a hard get-off last weekend and I wasn't able to ride at all during the week, so to climb the podium at the end of the day is actually a pretty good result for me," Bogle said. "My back and side are still limiting what I can do, so I'm really happy we have a week off before the next race."

Bogle got as high as sixth place in Moto 1 but a mid-race crash set him back a few positions before he rallied to finish in seventh place. He then led for nine laps in Moto 2 before another fall allowed two riders past him.

"Two motos, two get-offs, that can't happen if I want to stay up front, especially when you're already banged up," said Bogle, of Cushing, Okla. "I'll continue to work with my trainer and try to get back to 100 percent before Unadilla."

Stablemates Zach Bell, who posted 10th- and 11th-place finishes for 11th overall, and Matt Bisceglia (13th and 12th for 13th overall) also represented the vaunted GEICO Honda team with respectable rides on a hotter-than-average day in the Great Northwest.

"This was a pretty solid day for me," said Bell, who hails from Cairo, Ga. "I'm trying to improve every race, every moto. The main goal coming into Washougal was to put myself in the mix with the top-level guys and I was able to do that for five or six laps, so that was good. There's still more I want to do.

"Staying on the bike and keeping my body as injury-free as possible remains a top priority for me. I need to be in these races to have a chance."

Bisceglia, a native of nearby Tualatin, Ore., was hoping to have a breakout race at the track he competed at as a boy but things just didn't go his way.

"I'm in a slump," Bisceglia said. "There's no way around it. I'm in a slump and I don't know why. I'm riding a lot during the week, my fitness is there, but I just can't get results. This happened to me before at the amateur level and I know it'll end at some point. I also know the only thing you can do is keep after it.

"We have a weekend off before heading across the country to Unadilla. Maybe things will start to fall into place there. I know I need to be patient, but it's hard because as a rider all you want to do is win."

The Unadilla National takes place Aug. 9 in New Berlin, N.Y. Unadilla is the 10th of 12 races on the national schedule.
