Last year, Dean Ferris confirmed that he would be riding in the AMA Nationals in 2019 but has admitted to motoonline.com.au that he was close to racing the MX National season opener this weekend due to not having any opportunities.
“I guess at some stage I had a fear of missing out, but I just had to realign my focus and know that I’m going onto different things now and make sure I keep going in that direction”.
“Up until recently I didn’t really have anything on the go, so I almost contemplated coming [back], but I’m glad I’ve hung in there and some opportunities have come up now. It’s definitely strange not being there, but I’m also excited with where my career is going.”
It sounds like an opportunity has presented itself to the Aussie and if rumours are to be believed he could be heading to the Factory Yamaha team in MXGP with Romain Febvre ruled out due to injury.
