With the MXGP of Belgium marking the final European stop in the 2014 FIM Motocross World Championship it also marked the final MXGP race for the season for Australian Dean Ferris with the Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing team.

With Tyla Rattray, who Ferris has been filling in for returning to racing action at lommel, Ferris put in his best result of his for race stint with the team to end it on a high. Pushing hard in both races, he improved from ninth in race one to seventh in race two to finish seventh overall.

‰ÛÏOn Saturday I felt very sick but I managed to pull through." Ferris explained.

"My starts were strong and in the first race I enjoyed a good battle with Tyla for most of the race," Ferris continued regarding Sunday's opening moto. "Race two was better.

"I was seventh and closing in on the guys fighting for fourth. My laps times were faster and I felt like I could get it. But then things turned crazy with the rain and lightning. I had to ditch my goggles ‰ÛÒ after that it was a matter of survival.

"Overall these four European races with the team have been a fantastic experience. They‰Ûªve been awesome and despite being a replacement rider they gave 100 per cent effort to my results.

"I‰Ûªm grateful to the opportunity they gave me.‰Û
