It was the first time in over 12 months that Dean Ferris has missed the podium in Australia. With a streak starting back at the midday point of the 2016 MX Nationals season, Ferris has maintained a top two finish since then but that phenomenal run has come to an end when Ferris placed fourth on Saturday Night.
Ferris gated well in the main event and was inside the top four when the field roared into turn two. The rider in front of Ferris miscued a double jump and went down and left Dean with no where to go and was caught in the carnage and also hit the deck.
Ferris remounted in last place and began to drag his way back through the field. He quickly charged his way to sixth place, then put on two aggressive moves to move into fourth. But with only a handful of laps remaining, Ferris was unable to improve his position and had to settle for a hard-fought fourth place.
