Jed Beaton (14) was once again fast out of the gate in both motos but mishaps ultimately hindered a podium result at theMXGP of Sardegna.

Jed Beaton experienced a challenging day in Italy at the MXGP of Sardegna ultimately claiming seventh-overall in the MX2 class.

Arriving in Sardinia for the 10th round of the FIM Motocross World Championship following a strong run of MX2 class results recently, Jed Beaton’s chances of another overall podium finish were quickly unraveled following an unfortunate crash early on in moto one. A race-long charge with no front brake then ensued with the Australian ultimately claiming 13th.

For race two, Beaton emerged from the first turn well placed inside the top-10. After making a number of passes during the opening laps, the 23-year-old would continue to maintain his strong pace, catching up to teammate Kay de Wolf and chasing him across the finish line for a well-deserved fifth-place finish.

Jed Beaton finished 13th and 5th for 7th overall.

“A bit of a frustrating day today,” Beaton lamented. “I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time in moto one as Jago Geerts crashed and then his bike bounced up and hit me off of mine. The crash damaged my front brake, so it wasn’t ideal, but I gave it everything I had and managed to score some points. I found a pretty good flow in race two and maintained a good pace. It was easy to make mistakes and I overexerted myself a little in the first one, so a fifth place wasn’t too bad. The next two rounds are back on hardpack and tracks that I really like so I’m looking forward to those and getting back up on the podium.”

Beaton now sits fifth in the MX2 title race and will return to the track on October 3rd for the MXGP of Germany.
