CDR Yamaha‰Ûªs Dean Ferris slotted back into the Australian motocross scene with style taking third place at the opening round of the 2016 Motul MX Nationals in the premier MX1 division, at Horsham, highlighted with a moto victory in race one.
Ferris, who just finished runner- up in the New Zealand championships recently, was in good form entering the MX Nationals season opener and hit the ground running in moto one. Completing the opening lap in third place, Ferris quickly charged his YZ450F to the lead and took control of the race. With each lap, he stretched the lead and after 30 minutes of racing, Ferris took a 10-second victory and a great start to his championship aspirations.
Moto two and again Ferris was near the front sitting in third. He then fell and dropped several positions before making some moves and finish the race in sixth.
His combined 1-6 results gave him third for the round and a good foundation for the start of a long championship.
‰ÛÏOverall, things went pretty well,‰Û
