Beaton made his debut today for HRC on the CRF250RW in Loket and had a strong finish in his first MX2 race inside the top 20.
After a poor start, Beaton found himself in 26th place in the first lap. The Aussie wasn’t deterred by this though and fought his way through the pack to take an 18th place finish in qualifying.
Michele Cervellin despite being severely under the weather this weekend initially started the qualifying race well in 11th place. The Italian looked like he would finish inside the top 12 until he crashed in a corner and he retired from the race. He will be resting up tonight in the hope that he feels better for tomorrows race.
The first MX2 race starts at 13h15 local time on Sunday 23rd July.
