Dean Ferris raced his factory backed Monster Energy Yamaha YZ250F to a superb second position overall at the Grand Prix of Finland in Hyvinkaa and the twelfth round of the FIM Motocross World Championship.
This was the twelfth round of the FIM Motocross World Championship, also the first visit of the MX series to Finland in thirteen years.
Ferris returned to the winner’s circle after two punchy starts on the YZ and a mean pace that cast him as one of the main protagonists on the day. The Australian was able to spray champagne for the third time this season and on the first occasion since capturing second in Portugal for round six.
Ferris started third and held his speed and nerve to cross the line in the same position in the first moto. Later in the day he needed to recover from outside the top five to catch and pass Jose Butron for the same rank and confirm his silverware.
Ferris currently lies in sixth place in the MX2 World Championship standings, just 13 points behind Dutchman, Glen Coldenhoff.
