Beaton and Lawrence share mixed results in Assen MXGP Qualifying
Australian Jed Beaton joined compatriot Hunter Lawrence and re-commenced his duties with HRC today in a tough qualifying for the Assen MXGP.

After last weekend‰Ûªs second place overall in the US MXGP , Suzuki World MXGP's MX2 rider Hunter Lawrence was hoping for a little more but the Aussie always raises his game for the main motos and 11th gate pick shouldn‰Ûªt hold him back too much:

‰ÛÏIt was an ok qualification race for me," Lawrence said, "We thought there was a bit of harder ground where I started on the outside, but it wasn‰Ûªt too much harder. The first couple of laps were carnage as they flattened the whole track, but then it got so rutted and deep so quickly. I wasn‰Ûªt feeling the best, I didn‰Ûªt have any rhythm out there, so I‰Ûªm going to regroup and make sure I come out firing tomorrow.‰Û

On his return to the HRC MX2 squad, compatriot Jed Beaton got caught up with tricky track conditions in Assen as well.

Beaton ended the race in 17th place. The bad weather had left the track sodden, creating deep ruts in the sand that swallowed the bikes. Beaton initially got off to a good start and was running in 12th place for the early part of the race. Unfortunately during a push for 11th place, he crashed and fell back to 24th place. Digging himself out of the sand, he remounted his CRF250RW and pushed back to a 17th place finish.

"Qualifying wasn‰Ûªt so bad, I got off to a good start for once but fell off in the second lap and dropped back to 24th," Beaton explained. "I ended up coming back to 17th, fell again but didn‰Ûªt lose any positions this time. I can take a lot of positives from this, I put in some good laps which. I put in a good start and had some good laps compared to practice and timed practice today so I hope I can do the same tomorrow."

There is more bad weather expected overnight which could create a new set of challenges in tomorrow‰Ûªs race. The first MX2.
