The GEICO Honda team has produced its fair share of Supercross stars, Justin Bogle knows all eyes will be on him during his first full season as a pro.
The easy-going Oklahoman intends to make his mark right away in the Supercross Lites series, mainly because he's put in the work and chosen his mentors carefully.
"My second season is going to be exciting," Bogle said. "I've been working a lot at Trey Canard's place and I've got some good people helping me out. It's hard to say what the expectations are going to be, but we'll find out once we start racing.
Bogle said that working with Canard, who also started his pro career as a GEICO Honda rider, has been helpful on several levels. He's also working alongside 1998 Supercross champion Robbie Reynard.
"Trey is a good guy to talk to," Bogle said. "He's been there, done that. I've also got Robbie in my corner. He's been a huge help for me.
Bogle enters his second year as a pro with an impressive amateur resume. In 2011, Bogle won the 450A class at the prestigious Loretta Lynns, the AMA Horizon Award and the Vurb Cup. The results in 2010 were similar when Bogle was a perfect six-for-six in the motos he raced at the Loretta Lynns.
"A lot of guys out there have had amateur careers like I did," Bogle said. "I know I can't fall back on that success. I'm moving forward and ready to show I can be just as successful as a professional rider."
