Beaton races to career best qualifying result in France

Posted:

Jed Beaton achieved his career best result today as he finished fourth on the 2018 CRF250RW in the qualifying race at the MXGP of Montbeliard

The track had been in prime condition earlier on in the day but by the time the MX2 qualifying race began, a heavy downpour of rain had made conditions slick and unforgiving. Beaton was one of the riders that initially got caught out by the change in conditions and his good start ended up with him sliding off in the first corner.

Quickly digging himself out of the mud, he made an incredible comeback from 30th to 11th in one lap. By the second lap Beaton was fighting for a top 6 position. Throwing himself over the jumps, managing the slippery downhill sections and keeping his riding smooth throughout, enabled him to achieve a fourth-place finish.

Feeling at home on the CRF250RW and at ease with the muddy track conditions, Beaton will be looking for the same result in tomorrow‰Ûªs race. The first MX2 race begins tomorrow at 16h10 local time.

"Qualifying today was ok, I actually got off to a much better start today but then crashed in the first corner." Beaton explained. "I just ran in too hot and tucked the front and I was dead last!

"I tried to get up as quick as I could and to get into it, not let them get too far away. I ended up coming back to fourth overall which is my best result to date.

"I feel really good and comfortable out there so I am looking forward to tomorrow."
