Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing’s Dylan Ferrandis is targeting a return to competition before the end of the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Championship.

Ferrandis, 28, crashed violently during the 450SX main in Houston, bringing out the red flag after hitting his head in the fall and later followed the concussion protocol.

He was set to make a return in Daytona, but after an additional crash during the press day for the event he withdrew from round eight, also missing Indy last weekend. The latest update provided has indicated that number 14 has started a rehab program and aims to make a return in approximately six weeks.

“After my crash at Houston and Daytona, I needed further evaluation,” commented the Frenchman. “I just started a three-week rehab to make sure everything is okay and with the goal to come back in around six weeks.”

Prior to the incident at Houston, Ferrandis delivered a relatively solid start to the season, notching 4-6-5 results in the opening three races.
