Jed Beaton 2020 MXGP
Get to know the story behind one of Australia's most prodigious and likeable young motocross talents, Jed Beaton, in this MXstore exclusive below.
We're thrilled to announce our partnership with Australian MXGP star Jed Beaton for the 2020 season. Jed is one of Australia's brightest young talents, living and racing in Europe for the Nestaan MX Rockstar Husqvarna Factory racing team in the MX2 class in the World Championship. We're extremely proud to be part of Jed's race program for 2020 as we put the spotlight on our Australian talent taking on the best in the world all over the globe. We've got some exciting opportunities lined up for you guys to get some exclusive insight into Jed's life and career over in Europe, as well as plenty of goodies up for grabs throughout the year, so stay tuned!
As a return to racing in the 2020 MXGP season draws near, Arno Van de Brink from Motocrossplanet caught up with Jed and the Nestaan team, as they make preparations for a return to the full time racing following the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out the video below!
MXstore's Athlete Manager Geoff Munro was thrilled at the opportunity to support Jed's program over in Europe. "Jed is an absolute legend. I was fortunate enough to meet him at the 2019 Motocross of Nations in Assen, and it's just like other people have told me - you can't help but like him! A few months and a bunch of Call of Duty sessions later and we were well on the way to getting this deal sorted. To be part of both Jed and Mitch's programs as they fly the Australian flag over in Europe is incredibly special for us here at MXstore and we couldn't be more excited for what's to come." Jed is now the second Australian rider racing over in Europe that we have jumped behind with our MXstore support program, joining Factory HRC star Mitch Evans.
Jed and the Nestaan MX team have one of the cleanest setups in the World Championship pits when it comes to their riding gear. Combining well with their title sponsor Rockstar Energy, the boys run an almost entirely Fox Racing setup, including Fox 360 Gear, Fox Instinct Boots, and Fox VUE Goggles. They combine this with a Bell Moto-9 Flex Helmet, one of the premier helmets in the class. Check it out below and hit the brand logo links to see what we've got available for you!
Riding for the Rockstar Husqvarna Factory Race team also means a pretty impressive setup when it comes to the bike. Of course, when you're racing dirt bikes at the highest level there is, you need to have the best equipment possible. We thought you'd take you through for a close up look at some of the more impressive pieces of equipment on Jed's Husqvarna FC250 machine:
Overall it's an extremely professional setup at the Nestaan team, as one would expect of a Factory race team over in Europe. We're thrilled to be able to play a small part in the team with our support of Jed, and we're looking forward to continuing our partnership well into the future as Jed chases down that World Championship goal. All photos are thanks to the Nestaan MX team and Shot By Bavo, one of the best in the business!
