Jed Beaton Fourth at MXGP of Trentino | News
Factory Husqvarna rider Jed Beaton had a strong showing in Italy, claiming fourth overall following 3-9 results for the MXGP of Trentino.
Following a strong start in race one, Jed Beaton showed impressive pace as he went from sixth to third in just a handful of laps, recording the fastest lap of the race as he carved his way through the leading riders. Continuing his charge, he began to make a challenge for second before back markers frustratingly held the Australian up. Denied a potential runner-up finish, Beaton held strong to claim a solid third place in moto one.
Coming together with another rider in the first turn resulted in a poor start for Beaton in race two. Progressing to 10th by the end of lap two, he then advanced to eighth by the halfway stage of the race. Unfortunate to lose a position in the closing stages of the moto, Jed’s ninth-place finish rewarded him with an impressive fourth overall.
“It’s been a decent day for me. Overall, I feel really good on the bike, it was just a shame that I clipped someone at the start of race two,” explained Beaton. “I felt great in race one, really comfortable and was on the pace, but third was the best that I could do in that one. I was looking forward to another good result in race two but it wasn’t to be. Two more rounds here though and I’m ready to get in the battle again.”
