Olsen and Beaton take useful bike time in international race in Hawkstone Park

Well represented at the 2019 edition of the Hawkstone International MX, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing saw Thomas Kjer-Olsen and Jed Beaton respectively earned fifth and 12th overall in MX2.

Following months of preparation, Thomas Kjer-Olsen marked with 2019 racing debut with a solid fifth overall in the 250cc category. Putting in strong performances to secure fifth and seventh place finishes in each of the two MX2 motos, Thomas stepped up his game to end the day with an impressive fourth place result in the combined MX1/MX2 Superfinal.

Making his competitive debut aboard Husqvarna machinery at this year’s Hawkstone International MX, Jed Beaton placed 12th overall in the highly competitive MX2 category. The young Aussie will now travel with the team as they head to France for their last race before the start of the 2019 FIM Motocross World Championship.

Thomas Kjer-Olsen: “It’s been a long winter of training and it felt good to finally do some racing. My speed is good at the moment and this is very positive heading to the World Championship. I had two good motos here in the UK and managed to secure fifth overall in MX2. In the mixed MX2/MX1 Superfinal I pushed hard to secure fourth and also be the highest ranking MX2 class rider. I feel I am where I need to be and I will continue working hard in order to be 100% ready for Argentina.”

Jed Beaton: “This was my first race after eight months and it felt good to be back behind the gate. I had some good moments here in the UK, but overall I feel I need more time to show what I am capable of. I made some small mistakes and had a crash in the opening moto, but as the day went on I was able to control my pace. The season has just started and I have a good feeling on my bike. It’s onward and upwards from here and I’m looking ahead to the races to come.”

Kay De Wolf rode in a 125cc race for the first time at the Hawkstone Park International, and immediately impressed with a fine victory.

In the first race, De Wolf quickly settled into second spot after a good start. In going for the lead, he crashed and lost valuable time. He remounted and charged to the front again. With three laps to go, he claimed the lead and won the race.

De Wolf took the early lead in race two and was never challenged. He rode to a clear victory and claimed overall honours for the day on his Rockstar Energy Factory Racing Husqvarna.

The team will be in action in Lacapelle Marival next weekend in a French international event.
