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. </p> <p><strong>450 Class</strong><br> 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.</p> <p>"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."</p> <p>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.</p> <p><strong>250 Class</strong><br> 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.</p> <p>"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"</p> <p>Teammate Matt Bisceglia crashed on the opening lap of the main event while chasing third, and remounted to finish 12th.</p> <p>The Focus: Team Honda Muscle Milk Gear by Troy Lee Designs</p> <p>For more than 30 years, TLD has been customizing helmets, and its relentless commitment to creating products that exceed the cutting edge of style, design and quality has given the company the reputation as an innovator in many different racing fields.

For the first time this season, he was forced to the semi-qualifying race after a first-turn crash left him in ninth during his heat race. He bounced back to win the semi and transfer into the main event. He launched off the line to a seventh-place start in the main, quickly made his way into sixth by the second lap, and took advantage of mistakes by other riders to finish fourth.  </p> <p>"Practice was good. I was either the fastest or just a little off the quickest rider so that makes me feel good and gives me confidence," explained Barcia. "The only thing that has been hurting me is my starts and the team and I are really working on that. We have been getting better and better, but that is the only thing that is really holding me back. When we look at the times after the races, I am right there in speed. I just need to get off that gate a little better. The heat race tonight didn't go as planned. I got pinched on the start and ended up going down and wasn't able to fight my way back into position. I didn't get the best start again in the semi but was able to win that, so that was good. I got a decent start in the main event, and was able to work my way into fourth. Once I get those starts figured out I know I'll be on the podium."</p> <p> "Tonight was an improvement from the last few weekends. Justin's starts improved despite some tough luck in the heat and semi race, but I think he rode well and was consistent throughout the whole main event. It is a good base to build off," says team manager Dan Betley. </p> <p>After a solid finish last weekend in Oakland, Muscle Milk-sponsored GEICO Honda's Wil Hahn was hoping to make even more progress this Saturday in Anaheim. Hahn transferred into the main event after finishing fourth in the semi-qualifying race. He got a sluggish start in the main event, but was able to work his way from 17th to 12th within the 20-lap race. </p> <p>"I crashed in the whoops earlier in the day and hurt my hand. I was doing as much therapy between sessions as possible but it really started hurting towards the end of the main," explained Hahn. "I was really hoping for my best race of the year today since I made good progress last weekend in Oakland and have always enjoyed Anaheim. I was ready to tear it up but that crash changed things. Thankfully my hand's not broken." </p> <p>Teammate Eli Tomac returned to the gate for the first time since getting injured at the season opener and looked very strong on his CRF450R. He qualified directly into the main event via his fourth-place finish in the first heat race, and got a mid-pack start in the main event. He was running ninth when he got a rear flat tire and was forced to pull out of the race.</p> <p>"Today I just wanted to get back into the groove as much as I could," stated Tomac. "I was still hoping for a top-five finish in the main but ended up getting a flat tire. Overall it was a good day and I was able to do some things on the track that the other guys weren't, which was cool. I did feel my shoulder getting a bit weak in the main event, so I know I still need to build strength back so I can attack the whole time."  </p> <p><strong>250 Class  </strong><br> It was a tough day for Muscle Milk-backed GEICO Honda rider Zach Osborne who went down in the final practice session, suffering an injury that ultimately sidelined him for the remainder of the night. Osborne has led the team's 250 effort with two podium finishes this season, and currently sits fifth overall in the points standings. </p> <p>Troy Lee Designs/ Lucas Oil/ Honda's Cole Seely nailed down the holeshot in the main event, and led the field until lap 12 when he went down. He quickly remounted his CRF250R to finish in second. Teammate Malcolm Stewart won his heat race and finished sixth in the main event, followed by Shane McElrath and Jessy Nelson in eighth and ninth. Seely is currently tied in points for the championship lead.</p> <p>The Focus: Malcolm Smith Dealer Signing </p> <p>On Friday, Honda Red Riders made their way to Malcolm Smith Motorsports in Riverside, CA to meet fans and sign autographs at the dealership's annual Supercross party. It was an impressive turnout, with the line of people wrapped around the parking lot. In attendance were Team Honda Muscle Milk's Justin Barcia, GEICO Honda's Eli Tomac, Zach Osborne and Wil Hahn, and all the Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda riders.</p> <p>"The Malcolm Smith dealer signings are always first class," said Barcia. "The dealership is huge and there is always an awesome turnout at this one. For me I prefer when we have Honda-only dealer signings because then you get to see the true Honda fans, but at the same time it's cool to see how many fans we have come through the line when all the teams are there. This dealership does an awesome job for sure." </p> <p><strong>450 Supercross Results </strong><br> 1. Chad Reed <br> 2. Ken Roczen<br> 3.

The O.Co Coliseum, which serves as home to the Oakland Raiders and Oakland Athletics, was filled Saturday night with 47,339 Supercross enthusiasts. Honda Red Riders posted top-10 results in both the 450 and 250 classes, gaining valuable points in the overall championship chase.  </p> <p><strong>450 Class</strong></p> <p>Team Honda Muscle Milk's Justin Barcia came into Oakland looking for redemption after a tough round three in Anaheim, and he looked fast throughout the day and in his heat race. Unfortunately, when the gate dropped for the main Barcia got a less-than-desirable jump and was mid-pack heading into the first turn. By lap three he had worked his way into sixth and was setting himself up to join a heated multi-rider battle for third until going down and falling outside the top 10. He quickly remounted his CRF450R and was able to recover a seventh-place finish. </p> <p>"These starts are killing me," stated Barcia. "I know I have the speed to run up front with those guys but I'm not putting myself in a good position at the start. Everyone is so fast it makes it tough to work your way through the pack and still have a chance. I was right in the mix before I went down, which sucked. The bike was working awesome, I just need to get my starts down and be consistent." </p> <p>Team manager Dan Bentley explains, "This class is so competitive that it is absolutely imperative to get a good start. Justin has been riding great and his lap times are right there with the leaders. If he can get a good start, I know he will win." </p> <p>Muscle Milk-sponsored GEICO Honda rider Wil Hahn scored his best result in the premier class by finishing eighth. For the first time this season, Hahn avoided the semi-qualifying race by advancing directly to the main event via a third-place effort in his heat race. In the main event, Hahn sat in fifth after the first two laps but fell backwards into eighth after making contact with Barcia, which is where he would ultimately finish. "The whole day was better," said Hahn. "My practices were better and my heat race was awesome. I got my starts better, and that was the main goal of the week. We did well here, and more than anything I was able to bring more speed. My riding was a lot more well-rounded, and I am looking forward to building on this weekend's progress." </p> <p><strong>250 Class  </strong></p> <p>Muscle Milk-backed GEICO Honda's Zach Osborne had a solid night, finishing fifth in the 250SX class main event. Osborne led the early stages of his heat race but after a heated battle with another rider, ended up finishing second. In the main event, Osborne finally got the start he has been looking for, landing him in fifth at the beginning of the race. He swapped back and forth with the rider in fourth multiple times and was trying to retake the position in the closing laps but went down in the whoops. He quickly recovered and was able to maintain fifth all the way to the checkered. </p> <p> "It's not what I want, but I got to lead some laps in the heat race and was really close to winning it, which was good," explained Osborne. "In the main event I finally got the start I needed, but I just didn't really make the most of the situation. I was going for fourth towards the end of the race and knew I had to make something happen, so I tried passing Seely through the whoops. I missed a whoop and went over the bars pretty hard. I'm fine and still was able to finish fifth." </p> <p>After claiming his first victory of the season last weekend in Anaheim, Troy Lee Designs/ Lucas Oil/ Honda's Cole Seely came into Oakland with the points lead but dropped back to second after his fourth-place finish. He is a mere six points behind the leader with two more rounds remaining before the Western Regional mid-season break. Teammates Jessy Nelson and Shane McElrath posted respectable results, finishing sixth and seventh. </p> <p>The Focus: Oakland Press Day and Muscle Milk visit </p> <p>Team Honda Muscle Milk's Justin Barcia and Trey Canard flew into the Bay Area a few days early to partake in Oakland's press day functions and for the team's annual visit to the Muscle Milk headquarters in Benicia. Both riders interviewed with local TV news stations, including KPIX CBS Channel 5, which ran a feature on Barcia that aired Friday evening. </p> <p>During the headquarter visit, riders signed autographs and answered questions for employees during a meet-and-greet session. Then they got a rare opportunity to taste test new flavors and products produced by Muscle Milk, including their new organic line, which will launch later this year. That evening Muscle Milk-sponsored riders Barcia, Canard, Hahn and Osborne attended the Golden State Warriors (also sponsored by Muscle Milk) basketball game. They were presented with custom jerseys that had their name and racing numbers on them, and then were allowed to watch the team warm up courtside. Barcia and Hahn wore their jerseys during the Supercross opening ceremonies the following night. </p> <p><strong>450 Supercross Results </strong><br> 1. Ryan Villopoto <br> 2. James Stewart <br> 3.

He quickly remounted his CRF450R and was able to recover a seventh-place finish. </p> <p>"These starts are killing me," stated Barcia. "I know I have the speed to run up front with those guys but I'm not putting myself in a good position at the start. Everyone is so fast it makes it tough to work your way through the pack and still have a chance. I was right in the mix before I went down, which sucked. The bike was working awesome, I just need to get my starts down and be consistent." </p> <p>Team manager Dan Bentley explains, "This class is so competitive that it is absolutely imperative to get a good start. Justin has been riding great and his lap times are right there with the leaders. If he can get a good start, I know he will win." </p> <p>Muscle Milk-sponsored GEICO Honda rider Wil Hahn scored his best result in the premier class by finishing eighth. For the first time this season, Hahn avoided the semi-qualifying race by advancing directly to the main event via a third-place effort in his heat race. In the main event, Hahn sat in fifth after the first two laps but fell backwards into eighth after making contact with Barcia, which is where he would ultimately finish. "The whole day was better," said Hahn. "My practices were better and my heat race was awesome. I got my starts better, and that was the main goal of the week. We did well here, and more than anything I was able to bring more speed. My riding was a lot more well-rounded, and I am looking forward to building on this weekend's progress." </p> <p><strong>250 Class  </strong></p> <p>Muscle Milk-backed GEICO Honda's Zach Osborne had a solid night, finishing fifth in the 250SX class main event. Osborne led the early stages of his heat race but after a heated battle with another rider, ended up finishing second. In the main event, Osborne finally got the start he has been looking for, landing him in fifth at the beginning of the race. He swapped back and forth with the rider in fourth multiple times and was trying to retake the position in the closing laps but went down in the whoops. He quickly recovered and was able to maintain fifth all the way to the checkered. </p> <p> "It's not what I want, but I got to lead some laps in the heat race and was really close to winning it, which was good," explained Osborne. "In the main event I finally got the start I needed, but I just didn't really make the most of the situation. I was going for fourth towards the end of the race and knew I had to make something happen, so I tried passing Seely through the whoops. I missed a whoop and went over the bars pretty hard. I'm fine and still was able to finish fifth." </p> <p>After claiming his first victory of the season last weekend in Anaheim, Troy Lee Designs/ Lucas Oil/ Honda's Cole Seely came into Oakland with the points lead but dropped back to second after his fourth-place finish. He is a mere six points behind the leader with two more rounds remaining before the Western Regional mid-season break. Teammates Jessy Nelson and Shane McElrath posted respectable results, finishing sixth and seventh. </p> <p>The Focus: Oakland Press Day and Muscle Milk visit </p> <p>Team Honda Muscle Milk's Justin Barcia and Trey Canard flew into the Bay Area a few days early to partake in Oakland's press day functions and for the team's annual visit to the Muscle Milk headquarters in Benicia. Both riders interviewed with local TV news stations, including KPIX CBS Channel 5, which ran a feature on Barcia that aired Friday evening. </p> <p>During the headquarter visit, riders signed autographs and answered questions for employees during a meet-and-greet session. Then they got a rare opportunity to taste test new flavors and products produced by Muscle Milk, including their new organic line, which will launch later this year. That evening Muscle Milk-sponsored riders Barcia, Canard, Hahn and Osborne attended the Golden State Warriors (also sponsored by Muscle Milk) basketball game. They were presented with custom jerseys that had their name and racing numbers on them, and then were allowed to watch the team warm up courtside. Barcia and Hahn wore their jerseys during the Supercross opening ceremonies the following night. </p> <p><strong>450 Supercross Results </strong><br> 1. Ryan Villopoto <br> 2. James Stewart <br> 3.
