Tough day at the office for CDR Yamaha at Murray Bridge

Tough day at the office for CDR Yamaha at Murray Bridge
The CDR Yamaha duo of Dean Ferris and Dan Reardon battled through a challenging weekend at Murray Bridge for round four of the MX Nationals with the pair determined there are better days ahead.

Ferris came into the fourth round as the championship points leader of the premier MX1 (450cc) class and looking to extend his championship lead. The day started well with Ferris firing off the fastest lap in Superpole and picking up a vital three points in the championship chase.

When the big boys got down to business in race one, Ferris was right in the heat of battle at the front of the field but struggling to come to terms with the technical Murray Bridge circuit. He worked hard for his third place finish but lacked the spark that had taken him to race wins earlier in the season.

Race two and Ferris was in front and looking to cash in on his good start. He came under attack from local hero Kirk Gibbs who made an aggressive move into the lead and Ferris on the deck. He remounted quickly and then made his way back to fourth place by race end. His 4-3 results netted him fourth for the day and he now sits in second place in the championship, just one point from the championship lead.

‰ÛÏI had a tough day today and couldn‰Ûªt really get comfortable on the track. It looks soft and loamy but you actually ride on a hard base and I just couldn‰Ûªt settle on the track and produce my best.

‰ÛÏThings are still close in the championship and there is a three way battle at the top at the moment, which is making things exciting. I think it will come down to the rider that makes the least mistakes and keeps putting good races together at each and every round,‰Û

Team mate Dan Reardon was under the weather the week leading into the Murray Bridge round with a virus. Low on energy, Reardon gave it everything in race one as he finished in a very respectable sixth place but as soon as the race was over, he was under the care of the RACESAFE medial crew.

With his blood pressure dropping and heart rate spiking, RACESAFE deemed Reardon ineligible to race the second moto due to his medical condition and Reardon was forced to watch the second race from the sidelines.

‰ÛÏIt was disappointing to not be able to see out the day and race both motos but I trust the judgement of the RACESAFE team and elected to sit out race two. I just felt terrible after the first race and was probably lucky to be even able to see that one out.

‰ÛÏWe have a tough round in the sand next week in Perth, so this week will be about trying to get my health back as quickly as possible as racing in the deep sand of WA will take plenty of strength and endurance.‰Û
