PICKERINGTON, Ohio. – GEICO Honda 250 rider Matt Bisceglia was named the 2014 Pro Motocross Series Rookie of the Year on Friday.

“It was really awesome to win rookie of the year,” Bisceglia said. “I actually had no idea I had won it initially because since I had been injured for the last couple races I didn’t get to go to the banquet. One of the mechanics sent me a picture of the award and told me I won it. All I could think was, ‘Oh, that’s so awesome.’

“I’m just really happy to win, especially with all the other rookies that I was running against. I had ups and downs throughout the year. I think some things could have gone a little bit better, but I have learned from my first year. I’m going to use my off-season as a time to build and work on what I have to in order to come back strong next year.”

While he is very proud of his accomplishment after his initial season on the professional circuit, Bisceglia is already focused on making improvements for next year. He has goals of being a front-runner for the entire 2015 season.

“Next season I want to be a little bit stronger,” Bisceglia. “I started off the season in the top 10 in the first three rounds. I was pretty happy with that, but obviously I still wanted to build off of that.

“I want to be able to eliminate little injuries and put myself in a good position to where stuff like that won’t happen. I’m going to learn from my mistakes and hopefully stay consistently in the top five in outdoor competition next year. I think that would be a good goal right now because the competition is really stacked. I want to set my sights even higher than that but I have a lot of work to do. It’s not going to be easy, but I’m looking forward to it in this off-season.”
