2021 Season Recap

Ferrandis spent some time in 2021 figuring out how to navigate the 450SX Class in his rookie season through a series of highs and lows that culminated in an impressive 7th place finish in the season ending standings. Ferrandis’ season was highlighted by a podium finish in only his second 450SX Class race at Round 2 in Houston. He followed that up with three top-fives and seven top-ten finished throughout the season, an impressive feat for the young rider. 

2022 Outlook

Ferrandis took his 450 learnings on the bike to the outdoor motocross series and pulled off a stunning overall series win in only his rookie season. He captured six victories throughout the summer series and an additional six podium finishes. There is no doubt that Ferrandis has momentum on his side going into Anaheim 1 in January for the start of the 2022 Monster Energy Supercross season, many eyes will be watching to see if the outdoor champ can bring those results indoors aboard his YZ450F.
