Jed Beaton top-10 at MXGP of Germany | News
Jed Beaton enjoyed positive results at round 10 of the FIM Motocross World Championship, rounding out the day with 6-5 results.
Continuing to improve, the Australian saw his first moto result effected by a fall. In moto two he briefly battled with teammate TKO before finishing a well-deserved fifth for sixth overall.
“I’m really happy with the way things have gone this weekend. To get sixth overall is another very important step forwards,” said Beaton. “I felt like both races were pretty similar really, just with a fall in the first moto that cost me some places. I didn’t get the best of jumps from the start in either race, but I held a tight line around the first turn and made up some places. That put me around 10th and I just pushed hard from there. Falling in the first race cost me some places but overall I was pleased with my riding. Fifth in the second race was good – it’s been a while since I’ve been racing with the guys near the front so it’s just good to be back racing there. It’s a really positive way to the end the GP. To be hitting some good form mid-way through the season is great. I’m looking forward to the overseas races now, and hope I can build on today’s results.”
Countryman Mitch Evans crashed out of Moto 1 and elected not to race Moto 2 deciding to instead focus on recovering for the MXGP of Indonesia in two weeks time.
