Bogle Finds Podium In Second Unadilla Moto To Lead GEICO Honda Effort

Reigning 250SX East champion Justin Bogle continues to impress on the outdoor circuit, finishing Saturday's two motos at Unadilla MX Park in fifth and third place for an overall fourth-place result. Bogle's effort led the five-man GEICO Honda team's assault on the 250 class.

"The day was good," Bogle said. "Any time you get to climb up on the stage you're pretty happy. Practice went well and we were able to make some changes to the suspension early on that made the bike better. That helped us have this really solid day, going 5-3 for fourth overall. It's not exactly what I wanted. I would have preferred getting an overall podium, but we just missed making that happen.

"It's late in the season but I still feel like I'm making progress every time out, so that's really good. I'm so close to being on the podium every moto. There are just a few little things I need to improve and it will happen."

R.J. Hampshire's professional debut was an eventful one as he survived a few get-offs to go 11-16 for an overall ranking of 13th place.

"The first moto started good but I got in there with some other riders and got bounced around a little," said Hampshire, who swept two classes and six total motos at last weekend's Amateur Nationals. "I went down a couple times and ended up 11th. Second moto was even better. I was up to fifth or sixth early, but I tucked the front end and dropped back to 15th. I raced back up to 11th or so and then had a pretty big crash and ended up back in 16th.

"It's good to get the jitters out. The competition isn't really a lot different as far as the talent level, but the track was gnarly this weekend and I wasn't used to it. That was the main difference, but that's nothing I can't fix moving forward."

Returning from an injury that sidelined him for weeks, Zach Osborne wrecked out of the first moto before logging a solid seventh-place finish in Moto 2 to end the day just behind Hampshire in 14th place overall.

"My practices went great and I was right up front, running the second- and third-quickest laps in the two sessions," Osborne said. "My confidence was high. Unfortunately, I got cross-rutted in the first lap of Moto 1, went down hard, and wadded up the bike pretty good. I couldn't ride it after that, so we just went back and got ready for Moto 2.

"I rode really strong the whole second race and got seventh. I pulled a pretty good start and then passed maybe seven or eight guys, so that was something to build on for sure. It's hard to come back mid-season when everyone else is in moto shape. You can train all you want but nothing prepares you for a national besides running the race."

Zach Bell went 17-17 for 18th overall and seemed to ride by himself for most of both motos.

"I didn't get the best starts and that just killed my chances for a top finish," Bell said. "It's pretty tough to pass people here except for certain spots, and it seemed like I never had the right timing to do a lot. I just kind of rode out both races.

"I want to finish strong for this GEICO Honda team. We'll get to work this week and be ready for Indy."

Matt Bisceglia was hit from behind and went down hard early in Moto 1. He was taken to the Asterisk medical trailer, where he was diagnosed with a broken knuckle on his right hand. The injury ended his day.

"In the first lap another rider hit me from behind in a corner and I high-sided over the bike," Bisceglia said. "Next thing I know I was eating dirt. I'm not exactly sure how my hand got hurt. I must have stuck it out when I went down. A lot happened in just a few seconds there. I'll get it looked at by my doctors at home and we'll decide what to do based on that diagnosis."

The tour now heads to Crawfordsville, Ind., for the Indiana National, Aug. 16, at Ironman MX Park.
