Dirt Shark dropped another edit with the Monster Energy/Star Racing Yamaha guys—this time with a solo focus on Dylan Ferrandis. Watch as the defending 250SX West Region champion talks about his move on Christian Craig at the 2020 Anaheim 2 Supercross, the chip on his shoulder after making a life-changing move to the U.S. to pursue a racing career, and more. Oh and then there’s also footage of him ripping through the sweet hills of California at Chocolate Mountain MX Ranch in San Diego, which I could just watch all day long.
Highlights from the fourth round.

We all remember the sweet video that Ken Roczen and Red Bull did, Terrafirma 94, when the superstar made the switch from Suzuki to factory Honda before the start of 2017. Roczen took Jeremy McGrath's championship-winning 1996 CR250 and ripped around Castillo Ranch in a tribute to MC's part in the original Terrafirma series. Well yesterday, Red Bull released another edit of clips from that day—this time with no music and just the sound of that beautiful two-stroke.
