Anaheim 3 marks another night of what could have been.
It was another night of what could have been for Dylan Ferrandis at Anaheim 3, frustration admittedly mounting after being unable to convert his speed into winning contention in the 450SX main event.
Ferrandis entered Anaheim 3 determined to return to the podium – his last rostrum result coming at San Diego’s third round of the 2022 season.
The Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha rider made his intentions clear by topping the first qualifying session, ultimately ending up fourth on the combined times heading into the night show in what was the third and final stop at Angel Stadium for this year.
Unfortunately for Ferrandis, he was involved in a first turn crash during heat one, ending his race and meaning he had to qualify through the LCQ, which he won, however, he had one of the last gate picks for the main event. From there the number 14 launched to 10th and worked his way forward over the 20-minute duration to claim P6.
“It was another bad night for me… I had a big crash in my heat race and had to go through the LCQ,” Ferrandis recalled. “I was pretty sore, but I fought as hard as I could and finished sixth. It’s really frustrating to have these tough weekends. We’re going to keep working and try to get back on the podium.”
The next opportunity for Ferrandis to land on the podium comes this Saturday when the 2022 Monster Energy Supercross Championship heads to Minneapolis for round seven.
