2017 Season Recap:

After six seasons of overseas competition, Ferrandis landed a ride with the Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha team and was a contender immediately following his 6th place finish at round 1 in Minneapolis. History shows that French riders have achieved the most success of international riders in supercross, likely a result of their highly technical skillset, and Ferrandis captured his first career 250SX Class podium at round 4 in Detroit and a season-best finish at round 8 in New Jersey. The Frenchman went on to finish 5th overall.
