Consistent results for Jed Beaton at MXGP of Lommel | News
Factory Husqvarna rider Jed Beaton has finished eighth overall at Round 15 of the FIM Motocross World Championship following 7-8 results.
Not getting the best jump from the start in race one, the Tasmanian sat just outside the top 10 before moving up to ninth five laps later. As the race entered its second half, he moved into eighth and continued to push forwards. Making the pass for seventh on lap 13, Jed then chased Roan Van De Moosdijk to the chequered flag to end his race in seventh.
Moto two saw a much better start for the FC 250 rider. Moving into ninth early in the race, Jed progressed into seventh at the halfway stage of the race as he found his rhythm around the demanding Lommel track. Losing just one position as the moto neared the end, he finished eighth and claimed eighth overall. With three rounds to go, Beaton maintains his fourth-place ranking in the MX2 World Championship.
“A disappointing day today. Not my greatest day of racing but I’m healthy, which is important with three rounds to go,” explained Jed Beaton after the event. “I found my flow in both races but not until towards the end, which was frustrating. By then there was a big gap ahead of me in each race. Overall, I felt like my riding was good, it just took me a little while to get going. Looking forward to some hardpack next weekend in Italy.”
