10 Out of 10 for Ferris As He Departs the Australian Motocross Chamionship

Posted:

During the week Dean Ferris announced he was heading abroad to race internationally for 2019, his departing gift to his CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team was to stamp his authority on the 2018 MX Nationals by claiming another round victory and make it 10 round victories from 10 contested.

And, in arguably his most dominant display for the season, Ferris was in a league of his own on a track that sorted the men from the boys as Coolum was at its gnarliest and ugliest. His winning margin in race one was 37 seconds and race two saw a gap of 34 seconds back to the second placed rider as Ferris laid down the law and destroyed his opposition.

‰ÛÏLast year I won nine of the ten rounds and I made a little deal with myself this year to aim to win every round,‰Û

"The track today was tough as the sand was deep and the ruts made it a real challenge. Physically, it was as demanding a track we have had in some time so I‰Ûªm thankful for the work my trainer, Guy Andrews and I have put in.

‰ÛÏThank you to WEM for another great series as well as the event sponsors. I‰Ûªm honoured to have won this championship three times now and it was something I dreamed about as a kid when I first started racing on a YZ85.

‰ÛÏFinally, a huge thank you to my family, girlfriend, my mechanic Aiden who is prepared to do whatever it takes and the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team who make it feel like a second home at the race track,‰Û

With Ferris making the announcement that he is headed overseas for racing in 2019, team owner, Craig Dack took some time to reflect on his time working with Dean and the teams 2018 MX Nationals campaign.

‰ÛÏThe past three years working with Dean has been great for myself and the team. With Dean, you know you are getting a rider who rolls up his sleeves, is prepared to get dirty and gives his all every time he hits the track. His passion for racing is infectious and we all gel so well that it is sad to see him go but we 100% understand that he has international goals to attain.

‰ÛÏWe still have the Australian Supercross Championship to go and that is another goal Dean has set for himself this year so we expect him to do what he always does and leave it on all the track,"

‰ÛÏThank you to my staff and team sponsors for their continued support and commitment as well as the long term relationship we have with Yamaha Australia. Its nearly a 30 year relationship that continues to grow,‰Û
