Jed Beaton was back in action at Ernee, France, after sitting out the last two rounds with a shoulder injury.

Jed Beaton finished thirteenth at the MXGP of France as he makes a return to racing after sitting out a few rounds with a shoulder injury.

The Australian Jed Beaton made a superb start in the first moto to run a solid sixth for more than half of the race before the effects of his recent injury lay-off forced him to slacken his pace slightly; he continued to race top-ten until a late error dropped him to thirteenth.

Eleventh on the opening lap of race two he posted a succession of solid laps to move into the top-ten mid-moto but the deficit of recent bike-time again took its toll in the closing laps and he finished thirteenth once more for the same position overall on the day. He remains seventeenth in the series points standings.

“I started off good for twenty-five minutes both motos but the last ten minutes were difficult each time,” Beaton explained. “I missed a couple of GPs with my shoulder and it showed as I’m still lacking race fitness. But it was another step in the right direction; I’m showing at the start of the race what I can do and now I have to build fitness back up to take it to the end of the moto.“

Beaton will be back in action next weekend at the MXGP of Germany.
