Round 12 of the 2021 FIM Motocross World Championship has ended positively for Australian Jed Beaton securing a strong fourth place overall result in the MX2 class.

With round 12 taking place at the classic French circuit of Lacapelle-Marival, good starts were essential at the tight and twisty track.

Starting race one in the best way possible, Jed Beaton rounded the first turn up front and quickly moved into fourth place during the opening lap. With his sights set on the podium, the Australian then worked his way around Jago Geerts on lap five before enjoying a largely untroubled moto to secure a deserved third-place finish.

In race two, Beaton didn’t quite secure the start needed for a repeat podium finish. Able to make several passes through the early laps and move into sixth, he went on to finish right behind the battle for the top-five, placing sixth in the moto for fourth overall.

“I guess overall It was a good day but on this track you really needed two good starts,” Beaton reflected. “I got a great one in race one and brought it home for third so that was pretty decent, and I was happy with my riding. I didn’t quite execute the same start in race two but I was able to make a few passes early on and ended up sixth. Not too bad but with a better start I know I could have been much closer to the front. It’s a little frustrating but now it’s onto Spain next weekend.”

Beaton will next be in FIM Motocross World Championship action at the MXGP of Spain in one week’s time for round 13 of the series on October 17.
