Rider - Dean Ferris  Back Back
Team Mate Mel Pocock    Christophe Charlier    Maxime Desprey   

Dean Ferris joins Monster Energy Yamaha knowing that the last Australian to sample Grand Prix victory was the late Andrew McFarlane from the confines from the same team and also on the YZ250F.

The 22 year old has been a recognisable name in national competition for several years, so much so that it seemed only natural that he would try to follow in the footsteps of racers like McFarlane and Chad Reed by attempting Grand Prix. A handful of MX1-GP wild card outings took place in 2010 – and he scored points on his debut in Germany – but it would take a valiant crack at the Australian title in 2011 (where he led the standings going into the penultimate round and suffered a thumb injury that thwarted his chances) to make him realise he had the speed and potential to make a name for himself internationally.

2012 saw his first full Grand Prix year, the highlight being a promising run holding second position in the sodden mud of the Brazilian round, but a shoulder injury would prematurely curtail his rookie term. Still young enough to consider an MX2-GP berth, Ferris is fighting fit and ready to use the rapid YZ250F to make the next step in his fledgling career.
