GEICO Honda team delivers its best race of the year
The GEICO Honda Supercross team had its best cumulative race of the 2014 season Saturday at a sold-out Georgia Dome. Justin Bogle led the charge, taking third place in 250SX East action, with 450 pro Wil Hahn and 250 veteran Blake Wharton finishing a season-best fourth in their respective races.
“This turned out to be a great day,” Bogle said. “I really like Atlanta. The East Coast is nice. Dallas does not count as an East Coast race, so I was glad to race here with some real dirt.
“I didn’t have the best start in the main, so I had to fight through and make some passes to get up front. Basically, I capitalized on some mistakes other guys were making and made it through the carnage. I raced a pretty smart race.

Progress being made for GEICO Honda Supercross stars Hahn, Osborne
Wil Hahn knew the first season aboard his 450cc GEICO Honda would be a work in progress, and now, after a season-best finish in Oakland, the reigning 250SX East champion rider carries a growing amount of confidence and momentum into Saturday’s race at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
Hahn scored the best finish of his 450 career at Oakland last weekend, coming home eighth overall. Combined with his solid performances in practice and a stellar Heat race, Hahn says his self-assurance is on the rise.
“It’s getting higher and higher, without a doubt,” Hahn said. “I’m happy with the way everything’s building and what we’re doing here as a team. Still, I’ve got to keep getting better and better.”

Hahn, Osborne bearing down hard for better results with GEICO Honda team
GEICO Motorcycle Honda Supercross riders Wil Hahn and Zach Osborne enter this weekend’s national event at O.co Coliseum in the Bay Area determined to make their marks in the 2014 title chase. Both riders have had solid starts to the season but agree that they expect more from themselves as the 17-race Supercross tour makes its fourth stop of the year.
“I can’t wait to get to the Bay Area,” Hahn said. “I’ve never raced up there, but I have attended past events and the dirt looks so nice. I’m excited to get the chance to tear it up. I’ve also got a lot of friends in that part of the country, so it’ll be fun to reconnect.
“The goal is to keep building on what I’ve accomplished in the first three races. I know my results (11th, 10th, and 12th) don’t show anything spectacular, but I’ve actually made a lot of progress and my confidence is getting up there where it needs to be. This is only the fourth of 17 races this season, so we’ve got time to get where we want to be.”

GEICO Honda riders wanted more out of second Anaheim race
GEICO Honda Supercross pros Zach Osborne and Wil Hahn had high hopes for Saturday’s second tour stop at Angel Stadium, so the mid-pack results they posted before the near-capacity crowd didn’t sit well with the popular riders.
Riding in the 250SX West class, Osborne had a third straight run-in with nemesis Dean Wilson. This time the Scotsman was just ahead of Osborne when he wiped out on the edge of the track. Wilson’s accident somehow flipped a Tuff Block directly into Osborne’s line, and with no time to react Osborne went over the top of the foam-filled marking device and came off his bike.
Although he quickly remounted and rejoined the race, Osborne had lost enough distance to the leaders to knock himself out of contention. He rode out the race and finished eighth.
