Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to confirm that Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing team rider Dean Ferris, who suffered a broken right Femur in the second moto at the penultimate round of the 2014 MXGP World Championship in Brazil, looks set to return to Europe next week.
Looking to build on his strong run of form from the four previous European rounds of the MXGP series, Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Dean Ferris’ weekend ended abruptly in race two. Sixth in qualification the Australian put himself in a prime position for a solid performance. Gating second in race one, Ferris delivered a brilliant ride to eventually place sixth. Moving into contention for an overall podium by holding down a top five position during race two, Ferris’ GP ended when he crashed heavily. Hitting the ground at speed Ferris sustained a broken right femur.
Husqvarna Motorcycles are pleased to confirm that Australian Dean Ferris will conclude the remainder of the FIM Motocross World Championship competing in the MXGP class for the Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing team.
After recent discussions, it has been agreed by both parties to bring an early termination to Rattray’s contract with Husqvarna Motorcycles’ MXGP team Red Bull IceOne Husqvarna Factory Racing.
With the MXGP of Belgium marking the final European stop in the 2014 FIM Motocross World Championship there were some solid performances from Husqvarna Motorcycles.
