Nathan Crawford Slots Into CDR Yamaha For Australian Supercross Championship
21-year-old Queenslander Nathan Crawford will fill Dean Ferris' seat for the remainder of the 2018 Australian Supercross Championship
Nathan Crawford, will fill the vacant CDR Yamaha Monster Energy team seat for the remaining rounds of the Australian Supercross Championship, starting next weekend at Coolum.

With Dean Ferris out after suffering injuries at round one, team owner Craig Dack, assessed his options and all roads led to the 21-year-old Queenslander, who is now back on the bike and in full training after recovering from a shoulder issue earlier in the year.

‰ÛÏWith Dean going down, our initial focus was to ensure he was ok and in the best possible care and now that has been done, we have decided to keep both bikes on the track at the remaining rounds and Nathan was our best option to race alongside Dylan for the next four rounds.

‰ÛÏHe ticks all the right boxes, not just for CDR, but Yamaha and our other sponsors to fill in for Dean and represent our team and partners professionally. Nathan is a Yamaha contracted rider, has raced a 450 successfully before in supercross and with thanks to Gavin Eales at Serco, he was happy to release him from any commitments he has with them so it‰Ûªs a great working relationship we have within the Yamaha teams,‰Û

Crawford is equally excited about the opportunity to race for the CDR Yamaha team and despite only returning to riding recently after his shoulder injury, he is aware that there is no pressure on his return yet still more than capable of doing a good job in the SX1 class.

Crawford is a previous SX1 main event winner after taking victory in the mud bath final round of 2017 and finished the championship inside the top five in his first year in the premier division.

‰ÛÏWithin a week I went from not riding to suddenly racing supercross for the best team in Australia so it‰Ûªs been a big week,‰Û
