Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Dylan Ferrandis claimed his second overall win of the season in the 250 class at round 10 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at the Unadilla National in New Berlin, New York. The French rider swept both motos in the muddy conditions and sits fifth overall in the championship standings.

“It was really a big battle all day today,” Ferrandis said. “For me, the experience I have from Europe really helped today. I’m used to not having a sighting lap prior to the race. The dirt here is awesome when it’s raining and it was a really good racetrack. It’s not often that I have the chance to battle with Aaron [Plessinger], so today was special and it was nice to push one another for the win.”

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Mitchell Harrison rounded out the overall podium with a pair of fourth-place finishes on the muddy Unadilla course.

“Today was filled with rain and mud,” Harrison said. “I got a good start in the first moto and was running right behind Michael Mosiman for a while. We both went down, unfortunately, and I ended up fourth. I had the lead for awhile in the second moto, but I got together with a lapper. I knew I had to be smart to secure the overall podium, and that’s what I did. It was a great day.”
