Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Jed Beaton has successfully completed a strong pre-seaso testing program and continues his preparations ahead of the 2021 MX2 World Championship start.

Following a productive winter spent sharpening his skills and further developing their FC 250 machinery, the Australian is looking forward to an exciting season of racing, starting with round one on May 23.

"It‰Ûªs a shame that the start of this season has been postponed a little but when the gate drops I‰Ûªll be ready. My goal is to build on what I achieved last year with more consistency and more podium results so that when we reach the end of the season I hope to be in contention for a strong result in the championship." Beaton commented.

Travelling to the warmer, drier climate of Spain to ride and train during the off-season proved to be highly productive for the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna MX2 racer. After enjoying ample riding time testing a number of new factory parts, Beaton has now finalised the base setting of his FC 250 machine ahead of the highly anticipated season opener in the Netherlands.

‰ÛÏMy winter training has been really good, really productive and I‰Ûªm very happy with my bike. It was nice to get to Spain and ride in dry conditions. I tested a few new parts and I made a few small changes but nothing major because I was already really comfortable with my set up."

"My focus was just on riding and training for the most part." Beaton added.

Beaton will lead the team into the MX2 World Championship following a strong 2020 season in which he narrowly missed out on third place in the final overall standings. Ultimately placing fourth, Beaton‰Ûªs season was headlined with his maiden MX2 moto win at round nine, together with him claiming three overall podium finishes and nine moto podiums.

The recently turned 23-year-old has enjoyed two years of progressive development with the team to establish himself as a regular contender for race wins and podium finishes. As such, Jed enters the 2021 season well-placed to challenge for the MX2 World Championship title.

"Winning the championship would be the ultimate goal obviously but it‰Ûªs a long season and the field is full of talented riders. If I can stay at the sharp end every moto, perform consistently, then it would be a great year for me.‰Û
