  • 2022 mxgp

    Jed Beaton & F&H Kawasaki will reunite and put on their big-boy pants to race in the MXGP class in 2022.
    No such luck as yet for Wilson Todd who'll be too old to race MX2 next year.

    Well , that area/class is so damn fast, not many [apart from the top 5] will get a look in , could even bring in the best from the US and they would most likely get lapped .

      Well Ive been away and hadn't seen that. Great news.
      Thought it was looking like Jed was not going to get any offers thrown his way.
      And both would be heading back to Aust - meaning '22 was going to be huge field back here.

      IMO and its not nice to say But it is reality, that he was maybe to big /heavy for 250's which was limiting his starts (slightly).
      There is a big difference between a whippet thin 68kg Vialle and a lean mean Beaton at 78kg's ( all est. btw)
      So I expect he will return similar results to Mitch Evans who fell under the same situation when on a 250 - except he didn't have factory motors on the 114 team, and showed his form in Aust on a 450 was not a one off.

      KHI are going all out with Febvre by retaking control of the factory team for '22.
      So hopefully Jed will benefit from the trickle down effect.

      Wilson was improving late season to be really consistent lower top 10 which was good for his first full year uninterrupted.
      Hope he gets a seat in '22


      Anyone with any news / updates on Mitch Evans ?

            Very confronting news.
            The same as the news of the young fella from W.A. - Regan Duffy, who the last I heard was in a critical condition.

                  He sure did ... Yamaha couldnt buy a podium here a few years ago now running three of em right up there.

                  but I only have eyes for Mitch Evans ( and Jed Beaton of course) atm.
                  Unspectacular but noticeable solid improvement particularly in the last two GP's.
                  Solid lap times and close enough speed wise to see now he can make that leap back into the top 5 ('ish).

                  Good to see Regan Duffy up and recovering. Seen at the ProMX rnds. Shows he wants to return. Great stuff.

                    Awesome performance by Vlaanderen in the sand at Sardegna and great battles between Vialle & Geerts in both MX2 races.

                    No sign of Beaton and Evans went from 5th to last in race 1, then crashed out of race 2.

                      Beaton still recovering from shoulder soreness.
                      Seems to me the shoulder injury has been understated. 3 races now.

                      Evans ..... assessment is fair..short but fair.....but further digging shows

                      Moto1/ lower top 10 start...not what he's trying to get to, but better than recent GP's.
                      Strong effort consistently moving forward making passes of 'B'Graders to 6th pos'n, passed Jonas "sub A'grader' for 5th
                      and looking good at that point with less than 5min remaining (plus 2laps).
                      This is Sardenia so high temps, Deep Sand. Better performance than expected...but then he hit the wall.
                      Not reported but seems to me he tipped over /crashed then toured around and fell to last in the finishers listing.
                      Best lap time during the moto placed him as 10th fastest, but close enough to the fasties to be - there's real hope here.

                      Moto2/ Great start top 5 or thereabouts, then...... crashed hard in first 1-2 corners, uninjured. Another rode over his bike front brake fatality....bent disc smashed hyd m/cyl. Pitted repaires cost 3-4laps...he went out put in supposedly some fast laps. Pulled orf DNF!
                      So called fast laps were not that and looked like a pretty poor performance all up....if just looking at the moto data.

                      All up happy he is uninjured further as I said above a straight up look at the data to me looked like.....not good.
                      M1 looking promising then crashed looks like further injury.
                      M2 looked dire in that he seemed to pull orf with injury or more wrist trouble. seems terminal.
                      * Note previous last report I saw was that Mitch is requiring ongoing constant pain medication to overcome the what seems irrepariable wrist issue.
                      Overall Im thinking that his prognosis i.e. long term prospects at MXGP level are at the final curtain call this season unless miraculous
                      performance gains are made. Leaves me sad....

                      * Im not certain Sardinia is a true real MXGP track, by stds normally set to be accepted as a facility at this level.
                      A super hard challenging track yes sir. A national level track by Italian stds yep.
                      Did some guys particularly in the 450's pull back and adopt a lets just get thru this and out of here fit and sane....?

                        Pretty sure that Sardinia track is/was Tony Cs home and practice track , reminds me of the Bilbin track near Shitney /blue mountains.

                          Ive seen vision some years ago that his 'home' training base was a farm of his early sponsor team manager.
                          However I only know what I know.......And Im sure your right that this track on the w/end was probably his home race track as was say Amaroo for Gall Gunter back in the 70's.
                          And recall seeing vision of the opening event of the Italian NAtional series in 2018 with him winning and HL#96 winning the 250's at that time on the 114Team Honda.

                          My only point was not to slag the track but point out how brutal it is was last Sunday.
                          A bit like Manjimup in WA. A real deep soft base sand track.
                          And that Mitch Evans is still building a base fitness to get back to somewhere near where he was / may have been if no injury etc.

                          And that a one time national promoter stated to me 'some' of the 'requirements' to qualify for a MXGP...here in Aust. Such as minimal length, minimum avge terminal speed of a lap i.e usually over 50kmh avge, extent of track obstacles.

                              Yes 380 brutal quick and unforgiving.
                              But Mitch Evans showed further improvement with his best GP result this year.
                              Strong showing during each of Qual race and Moto 2. With a reasonably solid Moto 1 finish.

                              Still hope he can be whats required to fill that successful third seat on a podium getting MXoN team
