Supercross will see two of its top factory-backed racers return to action this Saturday when Team Honda’s Nathan Ramsey and Team Yamaha’s Tim Ferry line up for Round Nine of EA SPORTS Supercross.
Ramsey, who suffered a Grade 2 separation of the shoulder at Minneapolis, was on the sidelines for the Atlanta round. Some serious rehab work withlegendary supercross trainer Jeff Spencer and Ramsey says he’s good to gofor Daytona. “I think I’m just as strong as before the injury,” said Ramsey, who’ll run the Universal Studios/Honda CRF450R four stroke on the sandy Daytona track. “If anything, I thought I might be a bit behind mentally, but I’m looking at it like ‘Hey, I only missed one race and I’ve had a little break.’ So really, I’m probably better off than the guys who’ve been racing the wholetime.”
For the Florida-based Ferry, it’s been a couple weeks of home-cooked meals and training hard to get ready for his return aboard the Yamaha YZ426F. As you recall, Ferry injured his chest at Phoenix and has been on the mend forthe past several races. Ferry’s been back on his bike, training, for about 3.5 weeks and definitely feels like he’s got his A-game going again. “Everything’s great,” said Ferry. “I’m riding great, chest and knee feels fine and I’m really looking forward to not only racing at Daytona, but beingcompetitive as well.”
