Ferris Reflects On The Perfect Day Out At Conondale


Posted: Tuesday, 9th May, 2017 : 5:57 AM - - 2,749 Reads




Dean Ferris continued his sensational start to the 2017 MX Nationals with another dominant display at round three of the championship, held at the picturesque Conondale Circuit, on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

Mounted on his CDR Yamaha YZ450F, Ferris unleashed a near wheel perfect performance to win both MX1 motos contested and increase his lead in the championship to over 30 points.

On a track that the Kyogle resident admits is one of his favourite, Ferris sent out a clear warning shot to his rivals when he unleashed a grass burning lap in the Go Pro Superpole to take the all- important first pick of the gate and the confidence boost that comes with it.

And after the opening lap of race one, it instantly became the Dean Ferris show. He charged his way from third into the lead and let it rip. He slowly but surely moved away from his rivals and 30 minutes later he greeted the finish-line with a nine second gap back to Kirk Gibbs in second place.

With the bike and himself freshened up between motos, Ferris was again ready to do battle for another 30 minutes. This time his opposition didn’t get a look in. He took control of the race on the very first lap and set off into the distance.

His lead increased each and every lap, at one point out to nearly 20 seconds until the final laps where he decided to back down a notch and bring it home safely and lock down another race and round win.

After claiming the opening three round wins in succession, Ferris now has a 31-point lead.

“It was pretty much the perfect day from me,” Ferris stated from the podium. “I love riding this track and I reckon I raced with a smile on my face all day long. Tracks like this suit the way I ride and I enjoy the flowing turns, the hills and the jumps here. It’s just a really cool track to ride.

“Conondale is also special to me as it was the place I won my first ever National moto back in 2007 when I raced the MXD class, so to win here again 10 years later and again be on a Yamaha is pretty cool and something I was thinking about when I was riding.

“Thanks to my mechanic Aiden for all his hard work as well as everyone on the CDR Yamaha team as the continue to give me everything I need to ride well.

But the success from the first three rounds won’t change Ferris and he continues to strive for back to back championships at the MX Nationals.

“We are only three rounds into a ten round championship and a lot of laps are still to be raced. I will continue to give 100% in my training and preparation because that’s what it takes to keep achieving these results. There are plenty of good riders in the MX1 class so there is no chance of my taking it easy,” he warns.

The MX Nationals now moves to Horsham in Victoria for round four of the championship on May 20.
