Cervellin out of MXoN?

While Jed Beaton will do his best for Team HRC MX2 this weekend, when they head to France this weekend for the final round of the FIM motocross world championship, there is now a question mark on Michele Cervellin for Team Italy for the MXoN as he has been medically ruled out of competition this weekend.

Villars sous Ecot is located in Eastern France and was last used in the MXGP series in 2015. The track had undergone an extensive renovation on areas such as the start, to offer riders the best experience of the track in its picturesque setting.

Jed Beaton: I am excited to head into France this weekend, I haven’t actually seen much of the track so I don’t know what to expect but I know that I am looking forward to heading back onto hard pack. I just want to ride like I know how and get some good results, the starts have been something I need to work on, so putting a bit more focus on that this weekend should pay off and enable me to get the results I expect of myself.

Roger Harvey, HRC General Manager: We head into the final French round of the series with only our stand in rider, Jed Beaton racing for us in the MX2 class. Michele Cervellin unfortunately sustained his groin injury in America which will take time to heal and means we can’t end the season with him this weekend. We have got our fingers crossed for good weather on the hard pack track in Villars sous Ecot and we are looking forward to seeing how Jed performs now he has stepped up from EMX250.
