Honda’s Bogle Claims Podium at Genova Supercross
Justin Bogle

GEICO Honda rider Justin Bogle is moving full time to the Honda 450CRF for the 2016 season, but he got a head start on the year by racing in the Monster Energy Genova Supercross race at Palasport di Genova over the weekend.

Bogle performed well in the race, one of the more popular events for American riders who compete in Europe during the U.S. off-season. After finishing sixth in the first race, he came home second in the second event to finish with an overall third-place finish, good enough for a podium.

Bogle began the day by posting the third-fastest time in the free practice, but he improved his speed by nearly 1.5 seconds during the second timed practice. His lap of 41.568 seconds was seventh in the second practice, but Bogle was clearly getting comfortable on the GEICO Honda 450.

He started eighth for the first race, worked his way to seventh on Lap 4, and then moved into sixth on Lap 5, where he finished the race.

In the second event, Bogle jumped to the lead and held it for the first five laps. He slipped to second, where he remained for the remaining seven laps.

Still, that got him a combined third, and he was able to share the podium with winner Cooper Webb and second-place Broc Tickle.

Bogle traveled to Italy a couple of days before the race, taking time to get adjusted to the difference in time zones, but he was still his flamboyant self, generating cheers with his stylish whips during the jumps in a Supercross race.

Bogle begins his full-time tenure aboard the GEICO Honda 450 for the Monster Energy Supercross opener Jan. 9, 2016, at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
