Dean Ferris Records Season Best Result In France, Todd Waters Moves To 8th In Standings

Posted:

Wilvo Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Dean Ferris claimed his best result of the year to date with a pair of fourth place MXGP results at the GP of France‰Ûªs Villars sous Ìäcot overnight.

It was a day to remember for all the right reasons for Ferris, turning impressive speed into two strong results, the Australian rode a relatively uneventful opening MXGP moto to claim fourth.

Second time out Ferris gated well but came close to crashing in the first turn. Down in eighth at the end of the opening lap he fought hard to work his way back inside the top five, eventually matching his first moto result of fourth.

‰ÛÏThings really improved for me this weekend." Ferris enthused. "Timed practice was kind of how it always is ‰ÛÒ I didn't do anything amazing.

"In the qualifying race it took until the final 10 minutes to get into a good rhythm. I set some strong lap times then, so I was pretty confident going into Sunday.

"My first moto was pretty uneventful, in a good way. I gated pretty well, got overtaken by one rider and pretty much rode my own race.

"I was lucky not to go down in the first turn in moto two. That put me down in eighth or something and I just pushed as hard as I could. I got up to fourth and tried all I could to get ahead of Bobryshev for third but just couldn‰Ûªt make it happen.‰Û

Fellow Aussie Todd Waters endured a GP of highs and lows.

Starting well in both MXGP races, crashes in both motos saw the Red Bull IceOne rider struggling to find his rhythm coming home in 12th and 13th, though those results were enough to see him once again finish inside the top ten for the round in tenth position and moved up one position in the championship standings and now sits in 8th position after eight rounds of racing.

‰ÛÏI got two good starts ‰ÛÒ a great start in the second moto ‰ÛÒ but also crashed in both races." Waters explained. "It‰Ûªs frustrating, it is so hard to get up and get back into a good rhythm once you've been off.

"In the first race I was around seventh off the start and I was pushing hard. Once I crashed I found it really hard to get into my groove again. I was second behind Max off the start in moto two and felt good.

"I dropped a spot to Bobryshev but was still right up there, then I came together with Ferris and like the first moto couldn‰Ûªt get into it after that.‰Û
