Monster Energy Yamaha’s Dean Ferris had an operation yesterday on a broken right collarbone and is hopeful of being able to take to the line for the third round of the FIM Motocross World Championship at Valkenswaard in the Netherlands on Easter Monday.
Ferris, currently third in the FIM MX2 standings with his YZ250F, is now hopeful of being ready for the third round of the FIM Motocross World Championship at Valkenswaard in the Netherlands on Easter Monday. The 22 year old had an operation yesterday on a broken right collarbone and after this reasonably straightforward medical procedure (we are told) he then has two weeks to recover before entering the sand of Valkenswaard near Eindhoven.
“Initially it was beneficial for Dean to be at Halle to get some good time in the sand and against a lot of other Grand Prix riders who were also using the meeting for training and preparation for Valkenswaard,” said Team Manager Steve Dixon. “He had a good start and was going for fourth or fifth position when he got out of shape on the jump. Hopefully everything will go okay with the operation and then he just needs some time for the rib to get better. With some RandR and luck we are crossing our fingers that Dean should be back for the next Grand Prix.”
Ferris’ Monster Energy Yamaha team-mate, Mel Pocock won race two (MX2) at a very wet and cold first round of the Maxxis British Championship at FatCat, Doncaster on the same day.
