Another Win For Ferris At Sunshine State Round 1

10 February 2010 - Honda mounted Dean Ferris pulled off another formidable season lead-up win at last weekend’s first round of the Sunshine State Motocross series at Coolum.

Ferris, who was supported trackside by multiple Motocross/Supercross Champion Glen Bell, won the first Pro Open moto from Todd Waters, as well as the round overall after the event was cut short due to inclement weather.

“Dean is a really talented young rider,’ Bell said.

“We have spent quite a bit of time together training and working on starts which is clearly paying off for him.”

“He really dominated the race from start to finish giving guys like Craig Anderson and Waters a real run for their money.”

Ferris fronted for the Queensland event fresh off his Deep Well Desert Race win in Alice Springs and says his fitness has never been better.

“I pulled the holeshot and put down one good lap and when I came around to see +5 seconds on my pit board, I decided to back it down. Still I managed to win by 15 seconds over Todd Waters so it was a really good race for me.”

“My CRF450 worked really well in the rough conditions, and everything is going to plan. I am fortunate to have a good team off people around me and I’m well on track for the first round of the national motocross series.”
