Australian Jed Beaton consolidated his fifth place in the FIM World MX2 Motocross Championship standings with two more solid rides in the Russian round of the series overnight.

The F&H Racing Team rider had the misfortune to collide with another rider at the start of the opening GP moto at the spectacular Orlyonok track overlooking the Black Sea but he showed great commitment to fight back to eighth place after restarting last.

Initially eleventh in race two he quickly advanced to seventh place but the exertions of the tough first ride took their toll and he wisely accepted that as his finishing position rather than risk a crash. Eighth overall on the day, he has maintained his fifth position in the series standings after six rounds of the twenty GP series.
Jed Beaton (14) launches into action at the Russian MXGP
‰ÛÏI felt a little bit stiff this morning during the warm-up as I had a pretty big crash yesterday during the qualifying race," Beaton explained.

"My first start was OK but I collided with Brylyakov in the first turn; I still managed to come back to eighth so I was pretty happy with that ride. I put a lot of energy into that race and it made the second one pretty hard; it was also very hot today so my body felt a little bit drained so I couldn‰Ûªt push for the entire moto but I still ended up seventh. It wasn‰Ûªt my best weekend of the year but I took some good points and I‰Ûªm still fifth in the championship."

Beaton will be back on May the 13th for the 7th stop of the 2018 FIM Motocross World Champinship series in Riga, for the MXGP of Latvia
