Dylan Ferrandis, 2021 AMA Pro Motocross champion, will line up with Phoenix Honda Racing during the upcoming SuperMotocross World Championship season.
The Frenchman has raced under the Star Racing Yamaha banner since 2017, but announced his departure from the Blu Crew in early October. On Friday, Ferrandis officially signed his new contract with Phoenix Honda.
“I’ve always wanted to race a Honda and Phoenix Racing has given me the opportunity to do so. David Eller has been super nice with my situation and working towards building a program that will work for me,” Ferrandis said. “This includes working with Factory Connection, which is something that was very important for me in 2024.”
Eller is the owner and manager of the North Carolina-based team.
Ferrandis endured a challenging Monster Energy AMA Supercross season this past year as he was taken out of contention due to injury at round four. However, the 29-year-old rebounded during the summer motocross campaign to finish runner-up to champion Jett Lawrence in the standings.
Next year will mark Ferrandis’ fourth season competing in the 450SX class.
“So far, everything has been really great and the feeling on the bike is exactly what I was looking for,” Ferrandis said. “Having Ziggy around, with all his experience in the sport, I feel really at home with him and the whole Phoenix Racing team. The vibe is awesome and I’m very thankful to be in this situation.”
