Dean Ferris will come out of retirement for the third time for a crack at a 4th Australian Motocross Championship.

Triple Australian Motocross champion Dean Ferris has partnered with Brisbane Motorcycles Yamaha to compete in the Australian Pro MX Series as well as various local and international events for 2023.

Despite previously announcing his retirement at the conclusion of the 2022 season, Ferris is back for the 2023 season in a newly formed Brisbane Motorcycles Yamaha team. The team will compete at all rounds of the 2023 Aus ProMX championship onboard the all-new 2023 Yamaha YZ450F.

“After Coolum, my family and I set off to travel Australia in the caravan. It was great for the 6 weeks or so, I honestly really needed the break,” Ferris explained.

“After a couple of months on the road, I started getting itchy feet. When you wake up with all day, nowhere to be, and complete freedom to choose what to do, it becomes really clear what your values are. After a month of choosing travel, all I could think of was getting back to the grind and improving on the bike. Sounds crazy, but I love it.

“I love my training, I love riding and I love racing. I’d been in contact with James at Brisbane Motorcycles about getting a 125 to play on, and when I mentioned that I was considering pulling a Johnny Farnham and coming back to race, he jumped on the idea.

“Next minute we were putting together a mini team that allows me the freedom and flexibility to hand select my preferred equipment & products. It is important to me that I can ride to my ability and push my past limits, that means personalising my setup to suit me and my style. I’ve also learned from the last years and adjusted my program to better fit my family’s needs so I can be both the best father and athlete I can. I’m excited about the opportunity that has come about and the chance to reach another level. Racing’s in my blood, what else can I say?”

James Mutton added, “When we had the opportunity to work with Dean we couldn’t say ‘yes’ fast enough. Our goal as a business is to be the best motorcycle dealership company in the country; to partner with Dean who also competes at this level was a no-brainer. We are excited about the collaboration and the value it will generate for our existing and future off-road customers,” Mutton concluded.
