CDR Yamaha set for 2016


Armed with two experienced pilots who know how to win, a championship winning bike that has been through a multi-year development period and stability behind the scenes, CDR Yamaha have crossed the I‰Ûªs and dotted the T‰Ûªs as they are about to embark on another MX Nationals campaign.

Starting on April 3, in Horsham Victoria, the CDR Yamaha team will enter its 24th year as Yamaha‰Ûªs Factory MX1 outfit. The team has long been regarded as the benchmark for Australian motocross and the success of the team is no fluke with the best mechanics and technical staff in the country.

After three years racing internationally, Dean Ferris has returned to Australia and taking an instantly liking to his CDR Yamaha YZ450F. Ferris has been hard at work, competing in the New Zealand Motocross Championships in a combined CDR / JCR effort as well as contesting the Conondale Cup recently in Queensland as a warm to his national campaign.

Those events have proven to be beneficial to Ferris and his early season form has been promising.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really enjoying racing back in Australia and working with the CDR Yamaha team has been amazing. I felt comfortable right away on the YZ450F and things have only improved as we have tested a range of settings and components.

‰ÛÏNew Zealand has also been a great way to kick start my year but I was employed to win the MX Nationals so that‰Ûªs my goal and what the team and I are working towards. Horsham is right around the corner and I‰Ûªm good to go,‰Û

Team owner and former four time Mr. Motocross winner, Craig Dack, believes the ground work has been done and both his riders are in with a legitimate chance of winning the prestigious MX Nationals.

‰ÛÏBoth Dan and Dean are experienced riders with race wins both here and overseas to their name. I like the fact that they have racing maturity and have the mental strength to succeed in racing.

‰ÛÏDuring testing, the feedback on the bike has been positive and we think with our testing program, the YZ450F is as good as it‰Ûªs ever been. The staff have been tireless in getting all the one percenters right and we a great group of sponsors behind us again this year.

‰ÛÏAt CDR Yamaha, we know how difficult it is to win a national championship in the MX1 division and with other teams stepping up their programs, 2016 presents a huge challenge for us but one we are looking forward to.

‰ÛÏI have had enough of the off season, it‰Ûªs time to go racing,‰Û
