Luckless Night for Dean Ferris at Soaked Wollongong Circuit

Luckless Night for Dean Ferris at Soaked Wollongong Circuit

Round 2 of the Australian SX series held at in WIN Stadium in Wollongong, NSW was hampered by an unexpected thunderstorm, which would have a hand in a luckless night for Monster Energy Kawasaki racer, Dean Ferris.

Ferris got off to a great start earlier in the evening where he qualified on pole in the dry conditions looking for his first win of the series. The heaven’s opened before the final which would mean the second mud ridden race of the series. Ferris got a reasonable start and was well positioned on the first lap however moments later he would be taken down and left at the back of the pack. He quickly remounted but 3 laps in another error saw the Australian wind himself which forced him to retire without points.

“I’m really disappointed with tonight” admitted Ferris. “I set pole position in qualifying so was happy with my pace but it seems my luck just ran out in the final.  I got cleaned out in the second turn and then landed on tuff block when I got going again and that ended my night. I’ve got the speed to win I just need to keep it upright.”

Ferris heads to Campelltown, NSW next weekend for round 3 of the 5 round series.

Justin Barcia wins final race in Paris; Eli Tomac second place in ‘King of Bercy’ rankings

GEICO Honda pro Justin Barcia was easily the quickest rider on the fastest motorcycle throughout the three days of the 29th annual Supercross of Bercy, but it wasn’t until Sunday’s finale that he earned a trophy.

“I had it all right in front of me this weekend,” said Barcia, who led just about every lap of every warm-up race and test from the start of the weekend. “I was riding well and the GEICO Honda 450CFR felt great underneath me. I think I could have swept all three main events and won ‘King of Bercy’ again, but stuff happened the first two days and it didn’t work out. That’s racing.”

Another rider crossed into Barcia’s front wheel and broke several spokes on Friday, ending his race on the first lap. Saturday he was taken out by Greg Aranda and hit by a couple of other riders and was unable to make the call for the main. Then came Sunday, where he simply rode away from any trouble and dominated the field.

“The starts were everything,” Barcia said. “When I got good starts I was able to gap everyone and just ride the bike. When people got overaggressive on the first turn, bad things happened. I won tonight because I got a decent start and was able to pass the two guys in front of me right away. Then I just finished. I wish it had worked out better but it’s good to leave here on a high note. The fans were great and I had fun, so it was a good deal for me.”

Teammate Eli Tomac had a chance to win the overall “King of Bercy” title but ended up fifth on Sunday, giving him the second lowest total in the general classification standings behind Kyle Chisholm, who had a win, a runner-up and a third-place result. Tomac’s three days yielded a win, a runner-up and a fifth-place finish.

“I tried an outside gate tonight in a kind of all-or-nothing bid to get a holeshot,” Tomac said. “It had worked for me in an earlier race but in tonight’s main I got shoved out and had to fight for a spot. I think I was 10th or 11th after the first corner and I was playing catch-up after that. To get back up to fifth was pretty good considering the start. I wanted to win King of Bercy but Kyle had a cleaner start tonight and I just couldn’t catch him. I was grinding a few seconds off each time around but I was just too far back. Still, we all won the overall crown for the USA so that was a nice deal.

“I had a blast. The crowd was so loud and crazy. It was a pretty neat event. I’m really glad we came over here and I’m also glad to be heading home.”
