Motocross News
Unlucky Ferris misses second consecutive GP win

Australian MX talent, Dean Ferris, was devastated to miss his second consecutive MX2 GP overall win this weekend at the Matterly Basin UK GP.

Ferris grabbed a stunning hole-shot and moto 1 victory in front of 25.000 spectators, which he controlled from start to finish on a rutted and rough chalk based circuit.

The Monster Energy Yamaha racer held a comfortable 5-7 second lead over UK’s Jake Nicholls throughout the 35min race and brought home his 3rd MX2 GP moto win in convincing style.

Eager to repeat his first moto success, Ferris just missed out on the hole-shot in moto two and was pushed wide in the first turn by fast starter José Butron.

Ferris was held up by the Spaniard which allowed Christophe Charlier to break away and although he tried every move in the book, Ferris could not dispose of Butron.

Disaster struck on lap 6 after Ferris looped out but he was quick to remount only to find that his gas tank had been damaged in the fall. His chances of overall victory flew out the window and he had to retire.

“The first moto was good. I got my first holeshot and just controlled the race and rode smart. The track really suited me because it was so technical and rutty." Ferris explained.

"In moto two Butron was just a roadblock; I’ve got nothing more to say. I was trying everything to pass and getting off the line a lot. I crashed because I had my head-down from getting filled-in and the next thing I knew I was cartwheeling.

"I broke the tank, the bike wouldn't fire and there was fuel everywhere. That was that and at the moment I am very disappointed that the DNF cost me fourth in the championship also.

I am so happy in one respect in that the bike is working so sweetly now and it is a shame we are close to the end of the season because I could have had more points on the table…but you live and learn.” Ferris concluded.

The final round of the 17 round MX World championship series heads to the Netherlands on the 7-8 September. The sandy circuit of Lierop, labeled as the most treacherous and demanding sand track in the world, will see Ferris give his all in the final MX2 stint of 2013.
