Battling high heat and humidity, Monster Energy Yamaha’s Dean Ferris has finished eighth overall at the 5th round of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship in Florida.
Ferris was in 20th position after the gate drop of race one, fighting his way into 10th position on the last lap of the race. In race two, Ferris was inside the top-10 early and fought against the conditions to finish seventh behind his team mate Justin Barcia.
“Overall, I’m pretty happy with today. I got two really mediocre starts, which kind of made it hard for me, but I put in a big charge. Made a lot of passes in the first moto and was able to get to 10th. In the second moto, the start was a little better. I felt really strong all moto in spite of the heat. I think my big off-season in Australia training in the heat and getting ready for this outdoor championship really helped me today. So I’m really stoked that I could push through and pick up a couple more positions late in the moto because my fitness was strong. We made some improvements while testing throughout the week, as stuff turns out. I’m looking forward to Southwick; onward and upward.” Said, Dean Ferris.
Next weekend, the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team heads to Southwick, Massachusetts for Round 6 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at The Wick 338 on Saturday, June 29.
