Yoshimura Suzuki Keeps Matt Bisceglia on Board for High Point

Another week of fill-in duties for former Horizon Award winner

Matt Bisceglia will return again this Saturday, June 18, at the High Point National in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania, as fill-in for Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing. Team regulars Blake Baggett and James Stewart continue to rehab from injuries suffered earlier this season.

“Matt did a great job for us at the last round in Lakewood, Colorado,” said Mike Webb, Yoshimura Suzuki team manager. “James and Blake are close, but not quite ready to return. Fortunately, Matt proved he’s fully capable of being competitive in the 450 class, even though Lakewood was his debut 450 National. Matt will ride with us this weekend and we hope to have James and Blake back by next week in Tennessee.”

This will be Bisceglia’s second ride on the factory Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450. In Lakewood a couple of weeks ago, Bisceglia qualified 17th and got progressively quicker throughout the weekend. He raced to a 10-10 on the day earning eighth overall in his 450 class debut.

“It felt great to be able to ride my first 450 national with Yoshimura Suzuki,” Bisceglia said. “Now I’m getting another opportunity and I’ll give it my best for team.”

Saturday’s Red Bull High Point National is Round 4 of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.
