rider Matt Bisceglia finished 16th overall on the Yoshimura Suzuki
Factory Racing RM-Z450 in front of a large crowd and national television
audience on NBC for round four of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross
Championship at High Point Raceway in Mount Morris in America at the
Bisceglia’s stint with the team was extended to include High Point when
Yoshimura Suzuki’s regular riders James Stewart and Blake Baggett were
not quite 100 percent ready to return this week, as they both work back
Bisceglia, who turned in a solid ride in his debut 450 Motocross
National with an eighth in the last round in Lakewood, Colorado,
qualified 16th at High Point.
A total 40 riders lined-up for the start of the first moto and Bisceglia
ran 15th in the early going. Then he was able to tap into the power and
precision handling of the Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 to make steady
progress throughout the moto. By the chequered flag he had worked his
way up to 10th.
In the second moto Bisceglia ran into trouble early, crashing in a
high-speed section on lap three resulting in a DNF. When the final
scores were tallied it was Bisceglia earning 16th overall.
“It was a good first moto,” Bisceglia said. “I fought hard and ended up
10th. Unfortunately, in the second moto I got a good start and was in
about 10th again and then on the second or third lap I just came down
the corner rollers, swapped-out and high-sided. That ended my day right
there. It was a solid day besides that, it was just unfortunate it had
to end like that. I gave it everything I had.”
Stewart and Baggett are slated to return as the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross
Championship continues next weekend for the fifth round of the season.
Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, Tennessee, will host the Red Bull
Tennessee National on Saturday, June 25th.
