Yamaha Racing turned in another red letter day at round seven of MX Nationals at Conondale with Yamaha supported riders winning all three championship classes with Dean Ferris taking MX1, Jed Beaton MX2 and Mitch Evans on top of the MXD division.
And just to put the icing on the cake, Cameron Taylor notched up the win in the Vets over 40‰Ûªs.
CDR Yamaha‰Ûªs Dean Ferris won the round with his 2-1 results and gain another handful of points in the MX1 championship to now sit just six points back of series leader Kirk Gibbs. Ferris also took the win in the Superpole event to be the fastest qualifier to stamp his authority on the day.
DPH Yamaha‰Ûªs Jed Beaton landed on top of the MX2 podium after finishing with 1-2 results on his YZ250F.
