Ferris Ready To Add SX Title To His Collection Fo Aussie Championships

Posted:

Dean Ferris readily accepts, and he‰Ûªs hoping a new strategy will pay dividends as the 2018 Australian Supercross Championships roar into action at Jimboomba on Saturday
Three Australian Motocross Championships in a row proves that losing is not a concept Dean Ferris readily accepts, and he‰Ûªs hoping a new strategy will pay dividends as the 2018 Australian Supercross Championships roar into action at Jimboomba on Saturday.

This year the Yamaha pilot has chosen to opt out of MXoN (Motocross of Nations) representation, to focus 100% on preparing for the specific demands of the Supercross Championship. Because although the bikes and riders may look interchangeable between the two disciplines, the reality is sharply different.

‰ÛÏIt's always been difficult leading up to round one each year before the MXoN,‰Û
Wearing the Aussie colours means as much to Ferris as it does to the next Aussie sportsman or sportswoman, so opting out of the MXoN wasn‰Ûªt easy.

‰ÛÏA small part of me really wanted to go, but I know it was right to choose one or the other this year. I'm contracted to SX and I make my salary doing it, so this year I chose that direction.‰Û
The five-round Aussie championship begins with the twin daytime rounds at Jimboomba and Coolum, then moves to Geelong, Port Adelaide and concludes at the AUS-X Open
Current SX1 number one, American Justin Brayton has won the premier class for the last two years straight, while Ferris has finished third and second in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

Naturally, we couldn‰Ûªt let Australia‰Ûªs dominant rider of the last three years go without asking for the latest news on his plans to ride in the US in 2019.

‰ÛÏI'll be happy to tell it all when there‰Ûªs something to tell,‰Û
