Dean Ferris: Three-Time MX1 Champion

2 months ago | Words: MX Nationals | Photos: MXN Images

CDR Yamaha Monster Energy’s, Dean Ferris, has made it three MX Nationals championships in a row after claiming his third crown in the premier MX1 class, at Round 9 of the MX Nationals championship in Gladstone, Queensland.
Ferris wrapped up the 2018 championship with a moto one victory, but still didn’t rest on his laurels in the second race as he chalked up another perfect 1-1 result from the day’s two races. Penrite Honda Racing’s Brett Metcalfe finished the day second overall and Davey Motorsports Husqvarna rookie Caleb Ward filled the round podium in the MX1 class.

Despite carrying a 106-point lead into Gladstone, Ferris proved from the outset he meant business. He topped the qualifying sheets, then quickly took command of the opening race, eventually leading a hard-charging Metcalfe across the line by 3.2-seconds, wrapping up the championship with three races in hand. Raceline Pirelli KTM’s Mitch Evans finished a comfortable third, followed by Caleb Ward and Ferris’ CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team comrade Dylan Long.

In the second Thor MX1 race, Ferris continued to pour salt on the wounds of his rivals by grabbing the holeshot and leading wire-to-wire, with Caleb Ward a career-best second at his home race. Metcalfe crossed the line in a lonely third, followed by Mitch Evans (who initially finished second, but was penalised two positions for passing under a yellow flag) and Long in fifth place.
