With the return of Aaron Plessinger to the Monster Energy Yamaha team in America, Australia’s Dean Ferris will travel home. It seems that he and the team have come to a mutual agreement after serving his time as a replacement rider for Plessinger. In 2019, Ferris has ridden for factory Yamaha teams in both MXGP and the AMA Nationals as a replacement rider and will now be on the lookout to pick something up to ride in his home country. Just to bear in mind, the next round of the Australian Nationals is next weekend.

With Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team’s Aaron Plessinger returning to full fitness, the team and replacement rider Dean Ferris have come to a mutual agreement to part ways for the remainder of this season. The Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team will contest the rest of the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship with its original two-man team of Justin Barcia and Plessinger, and would like to thank Dean for his very respectable results supporting the team while Plessinger was out with injury.
Next on the schedule is round seven at the RedBud National in Buchanan, Michigan on July 6. In the spirit of the Fourth of July Holiday weekend, the Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team will be sporting a patriotic Stars and Stripes livery.
Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing Team Manager:
“It was a pleasure to have Dean filling in for the opening rounds of the 2019 Lucas Oil Motocross Championship while Aaron was recovering from injury. Now that Aaron has returned to his #7 YZ450F, the Aussie national champ has decided to return home down under. The Monster Energy Factory Yamaha team appreciated his strong work ethic and commitment while in the states, we wish him all the best in the future.”
