After being forced to sit out the opening round of the MXGP, Australian Jed Beaton has charged to a top-10 finish in his debut for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna at Matterley Basin.
Making his World Championship debut aboard FC 250 machinery, Jed Beaton secured a solid 10th overall in the MX2 category. Claiming a strong ninth place result in the opening 250cc class moto, the young Aussie ended the weekend by placing 13th in the second and final race.
Jed Beaton: “I had a really good weekend here at Matterley Basin. It was my first GP after many months, and I felt strong on the bike. It was good to get a top-10 in the opening moto. In the second moto I was close to the top-10 again and ended up finishing in 13th place. Getting a top-10 result in the overall is really positive for the rest of the season. There’s still a long way to go in this series. I’m pretty happy with where I am, hopefully I can start building from here.”
