Jed Beaton Battles Injury Residual and Misfortune In Portugal

Posted:

Jed Beaton battled the lingering effects of a shoulder injury at the MXGP of Portugal.

Jed Beaton has finished fifteenth in the fifth round of the 2022 FIM Motocross World Championship (MXGP) at Agueda, Portugal.

Beaton had fond memories of the Agueda after he recorded his maiden GP podium during his MX2 career.

In the opening moto, the Australian was holding a strong top-ten placing until he came together with another rider and was pushed out of the points-scoring placings before recovering to finish eighteenth.

The second moto looked even more promising as he raced top-six through the early laps but, troubled by the shoulder he injured at Mantova last month, he lost momentum during the second half of the race to take the chequered flag thirteenth. He now heads to the next round twelfth in the championship standings.

“I felt pretty good for the first ten to fifteen minutes of both races, but in the first moto I came together with someone and snapped off my clutch lever so I couldn’t do much after that,” Beaton explained.

“In the second moto I was good again for fifteen to twenty minutes but then I got a lot of arm pump in my left arm. That’s from the crash in Mantova; my shoulder doesn’t feel painful but it is still weak and I just don’t have the strength. I don’t want to be in this position but it is how it is; when I get it sorted I’ll be back where I ought to be.”

Beaton will be back in action next weekend for the MXGP of Trentino in Italy.
