Ferris’ team swap
A WRIST injury was not going to keep Kyogle boy Dean Ferris from doing what he loves.
In a sudden return to the motocross world, the 23-year-old has managed to lock in a deal with the Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing team, according to online motocross and supercross news website http://www.motoonline.com.au.
Ferris had been recovering from the injury during the mid-stages of the American supercross season, where he was part of the Red Bull KTM team.
On July 6 he will complete the final four rounds of the European GP season, starting in Sweden, for his new team.
He will then stay with the team for races in Finland, the Czech Republic and Belgium.
According to the website, Ferris is no stranger to the FIM Motocross World Championship, having contested the series in 2012 and 2013.
His best results came in 2013 where he claimed three MX2 race wins and ended the season sixth overall.
