Following his crash at Jimboomba supercross Dean Ferris will continue his recovery in the hospital for a few more days, he revealed today.

The Australian had a heavy fall in a heat race at the opening round of the domestic supercross championship which was serious enough for the 28-year-old to transported to the hospital.

Ferris underwent head and chest scans and it appears the only injury is a contusion to his right lung, which will require close monitoring for the next day or so.


He wasn’t able to say when he would return to the Australian Supercross Championship.

“As most of you know I went down hard at Jimboomba on the weekend,” wrote the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy rider on social media. “I’ve been in hospital since but hopefully will be out in a day or two. I suffered from a contusion to my right lung so doctors are monitoring it very closely. Everything else seems to be clear.

“Thanks for all the support and get well messages. It’s been a very long time since I crashed and ended up in hospital, not ideal but will still learn from it. I’ll rest up for a while and keep everyone updated with my recovery time.”
