Honda Podiums North of the Border

Torrance, CA: Round 12 of the Supercross series made its way to the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada on Saturday March 22, and the Honda Red Riders were there to do battle. At the only international stop on the 17-race circuit, Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia finished second, scoring his second podium of the season. It was a stellar night for Muscle Milk-supported GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle, who landed his career-first victory in the Eastern Regional 250SX class.

450 Class

Posting the fourth-quickest qualifying time in practice, Barcia lined up on the gate for heat one where he launched his CRF450R to a second-place start. On the last lap he overtook the lead position to take the heat race win. In the main event, Barcia rounded the first turn in second and moved into the lead by lap four. Riding his best race of the season, Barcia distanced himself from challengers for 10 laps, but was passed on lap 14 for the lead. He continued to put together an impressive ride, finishing second and well ahead of the third-place finisher. 

“I rode a good race today and although I am bummed I couldn’t get the win, I am pumped on the improvements we made,” stated Barcia. “The team was awesome and we got the bike working really well. I have never made changes before the main event and we made some suspension changes before the race and it turned out great. I had a really fun night, and felt like I was riding good but James [Stewart] was just riding better. Getting good starts is so key and that is what I have been struggling with. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs this season, so to be on the podium again is great. I hope we can continue this the rest of the season.”

It was another roller coaster night for Muscle Milk-supported GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn, who transferred directly into the main event via a fourth-place finish in his heat race. Unfortunately, he went down in the main event to finish 14th.

250 Class

Just one day before his 21st birthday, Bogle put together the best performance of his career by capturing his first professional 250SX class win. Bogle launched his CRF250R off the line, nailing down the holeshot and never looking back. He lead wire-to-wire the entire 15-lap race, taking the checkered and the win. The Oklahoma native now sits a mere five points behind the leader in the championship chase.

"I'm definitely happy. Both of my parents are here, my birthday is tomorrow and I got my first win. It definitely feels good," explained Bogle. “I have never pulled a holeshot in my career, so that is also really cool. I'm in the hunt for the championship, but I don't want to think about that. What got me back in the hunt was trying to win races and going out and doing my thing. I'm going to keep doing that, and it'll play out how it plays out. Hopefully, it plays out in my favor”

Teammate Matt Bisceglia crashed on the opening lap of the main event while chasing third, and remounted to finish 12th.
