Dylan Ferrandis will await medical advice before confirming he will be back on track at round five.

Dylan Ferrandis crashed early in the AMA Supercross 450SX main event at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, which drew out the red flag and did not restart the race.

Ferrandis got the day off to a great start, leading the way for the team by taking the runner-up spot in qualifying. He finished fourth in the first heat race, making for a difficult start in the main event with the eighth gate pick. The Frenchman was battling inside the top 10 and unfortunately crashed hard early in the race after colliding with Ken Roczen, drawing out the red flag. Ferrandis was evaluated on-site by the Alpinestars Mobile Medical Unit and, thankfully, was okay. He will seek further evaluation, and an update on his return will follow at a later date.

“I’m okay after my crash in the main event. I hit my head first and got knocked out for some minutes. Everything else is fine and I am okay now, fortunately. I will follow the concussion protocol and will see when I can ride again. Sorry. A big thanks to the medical team,” he explained.

Jeremy Coker – Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing 450 Team Manager, added, “Unfortunately, it’s part of the sport, but to see one of your guys crash the way Dylan did and to see him lying there was pretty tough. Fortunately, when I got to him, he was able to open his eyes and looked at me and said my name, and it was a huge relief to see him stand up and walk away.”
