 2020 Season Recap

Dylan Ferrandis entered the 2020 season on top after taking the 250SX West title in 2019. After a unique nine-race season, Ferrandis was able to convincingly defend his title by finishing in the top-two in seven of nine races with three of those being wins. Ferrandis found himself in a tight points battle early on through Round 5 with teammate, Justin Cooper. However, Cooper’s efforts were not enough to keep Ferrandis off the top step of the podium and Ferrandis took control of the standings the last four rounds to take the crown with 200 points.

 2021 Outlook

Ferrandis is making the jump from 250SX Class racing up to the premiere 450SX Class alongside his Monster Energy/Star Racing/ Yamaha team. This is an exciting step in the young Frenchman’s career as he has shown how dominant he can be in the 250SX Class. It will be interesting to see how he reacts to the new style of racing that comes with being in the premiere 450SX Class, but it is safe to say that Ferrandis could be considered a dark horse in the hunt for a podium spot.
