Consistent ride for Beaton2017-09-10 11:59
Jed Beaton had a much better day on his CRF250RW in Assen for the MXGP of the Netherlands today, as he managed to master the difficult sand track.
After getting caught out yesterday with just how rough the circuit was, Beaton refocused overnight and came back stronger today. Although he didn’t get good starts in either of the races, his ‘never give up attitude’ and ability to avoid any crashes meant he was to finish 14th place in both races today, showing that consistency was key.
The last round of the 2017 MXGP series heads to Pays de Montbéliard next weekend, where Beaton will be re-joining HRC again as his final stand in ride of the season.
Today was not too bad, I was consistent. I took away two 14th place finishes. It was much better than my GP at Lommel. My starts were not as good today so I was a bit disappointed about that and I made mistakes in both races but I was glad I managed to stay on for both of the races- I did all my crashing yesterday! I was pretty happy overall and think this is certainly something to improve on and learn from.

As we mentioned yesterday, Michele Cervellin was withdrawn from the event due to the groin strain which would have been escalated in the conditions that riders have to endure here at Assen. Jed Beaton was our solo rider this weekend and it is safe to say he rode solidly all weekend. Jed has this really good ‘never give up attitude’ and gives everything until the last lap. We look forward to seeing him race with us again next weekend for the final round.
