Bittersweet GP of Lombardis for Aussie Jed Beaton

Posted:

The GP of Lombardia was bittersweet for Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team's Jed Beaton.

Securing his best moto finish of the season to date with a confidence-boosting third in the opening moto, Beaton then sat comfortably inside the top 10 for much of the second MX2 race.

Holding sixth from lap two to lap 11 a crash while landing from a jump knocked the wind out of his sails and damaged his bike.

Finishing the race in an eventual 17th, the Australian placed seventh overall for the day.

"All I can say is I‰Ûªm gutted about yesterday, 3rd in the first moto and battling for podium position in the second moto, hit a mud patch and went down hard" Beaton explained.

"Waking up today feeling like I went two rounds with big Mike Tyson but we good see you in Portugal next week.

Beaton and his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team now head to round six of the FIM Motocross World Championship, the MXGP of Portugal, on May 19.
