Dean Ferris Shows Pace At Season Opening Race

Posted:

Dean Ferris has shown some great pace in his first outing witht he Wilvo Nestaan Husqvarna Factory Racing team at the opening round of the Internazionale d‰ÛªItalia, held at the Riola Sardo circuit in Sardinia.

Ferris, who is competing this year on Husqvarna‰Ûªs FC 350 endured a tough opening race after crashing at the start. Moving forward during the closing stages of the Elite final to finish 8th, Ferris ended the event happy with his performances, especially in light of the fact that he has only been back on a bike for three weeks.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been a tough return to racing, but aside from going down in the first turn of my opening race to get the fastest lap in the combined MX1/MX2 Elite race was really good." Ferris commented.

"I was lucky that no one hit me when I crashed at the start of the first race. Once I was up and racing again I felt really tight, not flowing at all. I had gate pick 28 for the second heat, but got a great jump from the gate.

"I was up to seventh a feeling good when I tipped off briefly. That meant I had to re-pass a load of riders, but I worked my way back to eighth, which I was pleased with," the Australian added.

"After three weeks back on a bike I can‰Ûªt expect too much, but I felt good in the second race and already I‰Ûªm starting to feel stronger and stronger on a bike. The team‰Ûªs great, I‰Ûªm really looking forward to the season ahead.‰Û
