Jed Beaton  to join Honda HRC MX2 for three rounds
Australian Jed Beaton has joined the HRC MX2 team for three rounds of the FIM world motocross championship this year in-between his championship races in the EMX250 series.

Beaton, who races for Carglass Honda in the EMX250 class, will be racing for HRC in Czech, Lommel and Assen this year. It is a big opportunity for the Aussie, who only made his debut racing in Europe this year when Honda decided to bring him into the series, fresh from winning his MX2 national title in Australia.

"I am really excited to be riding for HRC as it is known for being one of the best teams in the paddock," Beaton said.

"I am grateful that my team Carglass Honda have allowed me to do this in-between the EMX250 championship this year. I got to test the bike this week and I felt comfortable on it straight away which is a positive start. This will be my first race in MX2 so I am not expecting anything major for my first race but I have got expectations and I want to tick them off and hopefully improve everytime I go out and ride. Loket looks like a pretty good track, it‰Ûªs hard pack and stony but I don‰Ûªt mind that so let‰Ûªs see what I can do this weekend!" Beaton concluded.

Roger Harvey - HRC General Manager - MXGP, added, "We welcome Jed Beaton to HRC this weekend who is currently racing for Carglass Honda in the EMX250 class. As he is already a member of the Honda Racing Family and whilst there is a break In the EMX250 series, this is a good opportunity for Jed to get a taste of racing in MX2 and to show the progression that other Honda riders are capable of."
