Ferris Flies at Conondale MX Nats

18 Jul 2016

CDR Yamaha’s Dean Ferris has collected another MX Nationals round win with a stunning victory at round seven of the MX Nationals at Conondale in Queensland over the weekend.

In wet, rutty and extremely difficult conditions, Ferris showed his skill and determination to win the round and now move just a handful of points away from the championship lead.

Lead up rain left the Conondale circuit wet and made it challenging for the riders, but Ferris adapted quickly to the conditions to post the fastest lap in the Superpole qualifying and hit race one full of confidence.

Ferris slotted into second place in the opening laps of race one and settled into a safe speed on a track that was quick to catch out riders that pushed too hard. It was a mature ride from the CDR Yamaha rider that saw him take second at the end of the moto and look forward to race two.

Another good start had Ferris well placed during the opening stages of race two. He moved into the lead not long after and when his nearest rival from race one fell, Ferris again put together another well-constructed race to take the win and with it the overall round victory with his 2-1 results.

“I have always liked racing here at Conondale but it’s never been as tough or challenging as it was today. It was a real riders’ track and it separated the riders because of how tough it was.

“Getting the win was important and after the win at Nowra I focused on consolidating my position and not just be a one round or one race wonder.

“We still have a long way to go and the last three tracks are good tracks that will continue to challenge us so I look forward to racing them.

“Thank you to the CDR Yamaha team as the conditions made it their jobs difficult but they did a great job as always,” Ferris ends.

Dean has now moved to just six points away from the championship lead so its full steam ahead for him and the team as they prepare for round eight of the championship at Shepparton on July 31.
