Strong performance by Jed Beaton at MXGP of Indonesia | News

Managing the hot and humid conditions in Indonesia, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jed Beaton finished fifth at round 11 of the FIM Motocross World Championship.

Continuing his strong return to form, Jed Beaton secured Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s best result in the opening MX2 moto as the Australian finished in a well-deserved fifth, one position ahead of his teammate Thomas Kjer Olsen.

Race two again saw Beaton place fifth after spending five laps running in fourth. With 5/5 results the FC 250 rider placed fifth overall – his highest Grand Prix result of the year to date – and just two points behind the fourth-place finisher.

“It’s been another good GP for me. I felt like Germany was a really good step in the right direction, and that I was finally managing to put things behind me and deliver the pace I know I can,” said Beaton. “I kind of kept that momentum going here with two more strong results. It was a tough GP, we all knew the heat wasn’t going to be too much fun, but both races went well for me. I’m pleased things are moving in a good direction now, hopefully next weekend will be another positive weekend, too.”
