American Justin Bogle rides for the GEICO Honda team in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. He first began to make a name for himself in 2011, when, soon after graduating from the amateur ranks, he put in some strong performances in the last four races of the season, and finished 18th overall in the series for the 250 class.
Justin was born on 23rd March 1993 in Cushing, Oklahoma. He was quickly showing huge potential on a bike, and went on to be named AMA Amateur National Motocross champion three times, as well as being presented with the 2011 AMA Horizon Award for the most outstanding rider in the Amateur Championships.
After his breakthrough year, he continued to develop – in 2012, his first full season as a pro, he finished 14th in 250 MX points, despite missing five races early on in the year due to injury. The following year, he went even better, finishing seventh overall in MX, but was forced to miss all of the year’s indoor action with shoulder and wrist injuries.
With eight out of 12 races completed in the 2014 season, he is currently sixth in the overall standings, and is anxious to make up for lost time. His performances so far in the year have shown that he is capable of moving to the top of the 250 class, and, in the process, emulating other championship-winning GEICO Honda riders such as his good friend Wil Hahn.
