Dylan Ferrandis won his first US National on Saturday at Southwick going 4-1 and the Frenhman put his Southwick win down to his GP experiences in the sand. Ferrandis believes riding tougher tracks in Europe than Southwick helped him adjust to the Southwick sand more easily.
“For the last four or five years I trained in the sand for multiple GPs in Europe and I think that is what helped me today on this kind of track. I have experience on tracks more difficult that today like Lommel or Valkenswaard. So I think all the experience in Europe helped me for this race.
“I saw one French flag and maybe four French people today! We show that we are a good country and it’s good for the end of the year that we are going to have a good Motocross of Nations at Red Bud I think!. From where I came from Red Bud is an unbelievable race and I hope to have a good race there next weekend, because it is really important I show team France I can be strong there for the Motocross of Nations.”
