As the FIM world motocross championship heads into Round 13 in Loket this weekend, Cervellin is joined in MX2 by EMX250 rider and fellow Honda Racing family member; Jed Beaton.
Jed Beaton joins the HRC MX2 team for three rounds 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, said Beaton. 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 every time I go out and ride. Loket looks like a pretty good track, it’s hard pack and stony but I don’t mind that so let’s see what I can do this weekend!”
Cervellin has been visiting HRC in Japan during the short summer break and since he has returned home he has been back on his CRF250RW to prepare for the MXGP of Czech Republic. The stony hard packed nature of the circuit in Loket should mean that Cervellin is a solid contender for this weekend
