Rookie Dylan Ferrandis Takes Home Pro MX Championship
Bell Helmets rider, Dylan Ferrandis, has clinched the 2021 450 Pro Motocross Championship title after a spectacular ride during the final round at Pala Raceway. Second place for the weekend was all Ferrandis needed to get the job done and take home the trophy.
The 2021 Pro Motocross Championship returned to Pala Raceway for the penultimate round of the Pro Motocross series on Saturday September 4th. With a reversed layout, 100+ degree heat, and a 50-point lead in the championship, Dylan had one goal for the day: finish in front of Ken Roczen and win the 450 Championship.
A brutal first Moto saw Dylan chasing down his rival Roczen for the win. A great start, but Dylan needed to outperform him in Moto 2 to clinch this Championship.
Turns out Ken was no match for the Frenchman’s speed on the day, and Dylan closed out Moto 2 with a 2nd place finish, a 2nd overall, and the 2021 450 Pro Motocross Championship. Congrats to him and the entire Star Racing Yamaha Team on an incredible year.
