Charging to an impressive debut MX2 World Championship race win in moto two, Jed Beaton placed second overall following a seventh-place result in race one at the MXGP of Lombardia

After placing a strong seventh in moto one, the Australian charged to an impressive debut MX2 moto win in Mantova. Carving a tight line around the opening turn, the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing rider emerged in third place and immediately went to work. Attacking the track during the opening few laps he made the pass into second on lap two and then wasted little time taking the lead of the race with an aggressive pass at the beginning of lap three. With a clear track ahead of him, Jed controlled his nerves and raced to victory and a second-place overall result, just one point from overall winner and teammate Thomas Kjer Olsen.

‰ÛÏI can‰Ûªt explain how happy I am to have won the second moto today," Beaton said. "I had a great start in race two and got into the lead early on lap three. I then had a clear track and just focussed on my lines. As the race wore on I got a little nervous but kept it together. I did make a few mistakes but held on for the win. It‰Ûªs been a tough year until this point and it‰Ûªs all coming together now. The team have been great and I‰Ûªm so happy and pleased for them, too. I‰Ûªm looking forward to Wednesday now.‰Û
