Ferris on his first year in MXGP: Learned a tonne

Back in 2012, Dean Ferris signed with his first team to contest his first MXGP World Championship series.

The Aussie signed with the ICE ONE Kawasaki team who were a relatively new team – now they’re full factory which shows just how the team has grown.

Ferris says, he learnt a lot from his time in MXGP and especially how to train properly.

I signed with IceOne Racing Kawasaki and competed in the MXGP class. What an awesome experience my first year in Europe was. Learning all about culture and the crazy climate they live in. Flying into Finland when it was -40 was NEXT LEVEL (laughs)”.

“I spent most of the winter training in Spain to escape the freezing cold. I picked up an injury in the preseason but it wasn’t too serious. My highlight was running 2nd in the Brazilian mud for 30min before a small mistake cost me ( could barley pick the bike up, was so heavy from the mud ) Unfortunately I dislocated my shoulder at the next GP in France. It required surgery so the rest of my trip was just a holiday. I got an arse whooping in the 5 or 6 GP’s I completed though. My equipment wasn’t really on par but my fitness wasn’t either. Going that hard for 2x40min was something that I wasn’t accustomed too. When I returned home to recover and start building for 2013 I started working with Guy Andrews to reach that next level with my body. I worked hard and learned shit tonnes about training. I pretty much had to forget everything I thought I knew about being fit”.

“My only option to stay racing the GP’s was to drop back to MX2 on a Cosworth Yamaha. It was for peanuts but I knew I’d have a competitive bike so I accepted the deal“, Ferris stated.

7days until Christmas and 7 years ago was 2012. I signed with IceOne Racing Kawasaki and competed in the MXGP class. What an awesome experience my first year in Europe was. Learning all about culture and the crazy climate they live in. Flying into Finland when it was -40 was NEXT LEVEL haha. I spent most of the winter training in Spain to escape the freezing cold. I picked up an injury in the preseason but it wasn’t too serious. My highlight was running 2nd in the Brazilian mud for 30min before a small mistake cost me ( could barley pick the bike up, was so heavy from the mud ) Unfortunately I dislocated my shoulder at the next GP in France. It required surgery so the rest of my trip was just a holiday. I got an Arse whoopin in the 5 or 6 GP’s I completed though. My equipment wasn’t really on par but my fitness wasn’t either. Going that hard for 2x40min was something that I wasn’t accustomed too. When I returned home to recover and start building for 2013 I started working with Guy Andrews to reach that next level with my body. I worked hard and learned shit tonnes about training.
