Ferris achieves first top 10 MX1 GP result

4 years ago

Australian, Dean Ferris, has achieved a career best at Round 3 of the FIM Motocross World Championship held in Fermo, Italy, finishing 10th in Moto 2. Having competed at the spectacular hillside circuit in 2010 in a guest ride, Ferris knew what to expect against the world’s fastest MX1 racers.

Qualifying in 19th spot gave Dean a wide gate pick for both motos and he was caught in the gaggle of riders going into the first turn in Moto 1. He took time to settle down into his race rhythm but he finally found his race pace and climbed the ladder steadily setting his fastest times towards the end of the moto. His efforts were rewarded with 17th spot.

A much better start in Moto 2 had Ferris in the top 15 as he completed the first lap. He put his head down and punched out some fast consistent lap times which took him into 10th spot with four laps to go. He kept up his intensity and closed down factory rider Rui Goncalves. Goncalves managed to defend his position as Ferris chased him to the flag.

“I’m really pumped with my result today and with the support that the ICEONERACING are giving me. We have been trying to catch up on bike setup since my injury and this weekend we made improvements once again. I was happy with my riding in the first moto even though the results don’t show it because I had to come from far back after a bad start. I had a great jump in the second moto and pushed hard from start to finish and felt comfortable with running that pace. I’m looking forward to Mexico and Brazil and to mixing it up with the top guys.” admitted Ferris.

Ferris travels to Guadalajara Mexico in a week’s time to contest round 4 of the 16 round FIM Motocross championship.
