Dylan Ferrandis decided to make the move across the Atlantic and pursue a racing career in the United States with the Star Racing Yamaha team a couple of years ago. The longtime MX2 competitor made his AMA Pro Racing debut in 2017 and has since found his way to the podium in both supercross and motocross, proving his technical ability on the bike as well as his potential to grow into a future champion. Ferrandis was featured on France’s 2014 Motocross des Nations team when they won in Latvia for the second time in the history of the event, earning the accolade of the Best Young Rider in competition. The Yamaha rider has spent the last two years competing on American soil and has be- come somewhat accustomed to the tracks, the culture, and the style of racing that is present in the Lucas Oil Pro National se- ries, as exemplified by his multiple wins on the circuit. His multiple years of experience and his comfortability with the circuit played into the hands of the French team at Red- Bud, allowing Ferrandis to score solid re- sults in the MX2 division. His finishes were somewhat limited and restricted by small mistakes in the treacherous conditions that were present throughout the weekend, but he still eeked out a 3rd place overall result in the MX2 classification. The Yamaha rider’s ability to log consistent results and the way that he regrouped from small mis- takes was the difference in finishing on the podium and standing on the top step of the podium. A 7th place in the first moto and an 8th place in the second moto didn’t reflect his true speed and potential on the day, but he fought his way through small crashes and goggle issues to put France on top for the fifth consecutive time.
