Monster Yamaha’s Dylan Ferrandis was forced to give up in the Orlando Supercross 450 main event after crashing and then getting run over.

Ferrandis qualified 13th and finished ninth in his heat race. When it came time for the big show, the Frenchman found his stride, getting off to a good start in seventh.

Unfortunately, he went down in one of the rhythm sections before the third lap and was hit by another rider


“It was a difficult day with only two practices on a tough track,” said Ferrandis. “I managed to get a good start in the main and was feeling good. I tried some different rhythm sections then ended up crashing.

“I got hit by the rider next to me in the stomach and couldn’t breathe for a moment. I was okay in the end, but my race was over.”
