Jed Beaton has returned to form with a strong third place overall result at the MXGP of Turkey, round eight of the 2021 MX2 World Championship.

Top-three starts, strong pace and consistent 3-3 results ensured the Australian’s second podium visit so far this season.

Kicking off the second half of the MX2 World Championship on a highly positive note, Beaton enjoyed a great jump off the start in race one, briefly moving into second place before dropping back just one spot to third. He was then engaged in a race-long battle for the runner-up position with Mattia Guadagnini, frustratingly unable to find a way past the Italian. Nevertheless, an opening moto third was a strong start to the GP for Beaton.

Following the gate drop for race two, Beaton once again started up front, very nearly taking the holeshot before slotting into second place. The 23-year-old would then lose a position to Tom Vialle on lap five, before battling throughout the remaining laps of the race with Guadagnini for the final spot on the podium. This time, he came out on top to secure third in the moto and with it claimed third overall.

“It feels really good to be back on the podium,” Beaton enthused. “It had been a bit of an up and down year heading into the break so to get this podium and put together two strong races, it’s the perfect start to the second half of the season. I had to really dig deep in that second moto, withstanding pressure for pretty much the whole race, so that one felt really good. The team has been amazing as always and this result sets us up really well for Wednesday. My bike was awesome, my starts were perfect and now we can just focus on the motos in a few days’ time and get back up on the box again.”

Beaton is now placed fourth in the MX2 Motocross World Championship standings.
