Tim Ferry Bio

Tim Ferry
Ferry has fought relentlessly for victories that have been few and far between.

Another of the veterans, Tim Ferry is perhaps the most tenacious man on the track. Known for his fitness and stamina, Red Dog regularly stalks and hunts down unsuspecting front-runners and bags podium positions.

The Florida native emerged as a legit contender in both Supercross and Motocross with Rookie of the Year honors in ’92, and has yet to relinquish that distinction. Tim is always a nice guy in the pits and has earned a reputation for his never-say-die attitude. Red Dog started out as a privateer and has raced Hondas, Suzukis, Yamahas and now Kawaski. Ferry helped bring the 4-stroke to the front of the pack in 2000 and worked his way into the factory Yamaha tent in ’01. After five seasons there he was demoted to a satellite Honda squad, a move that traditionally has spelled the beginning of the end for racers. However, Ferry bulldogged his way back into the elite group by earning a spot beside James Stewart in 2007 and 2008.
In 2010 Ferry was left with a lingering heel injury which he originally broke at Daytona Supercross back in 2009. Although he finished the rest of the ’09 SX and MX seasons, the injury persisted and became a big problem for the 35-year-old in 2010. He missed the entire 2010 Supercross Championship, and right before the start of the outdoor nationals Ferry announced his retirement from the sport. 

His one championship was the 125 East SX title in 1997, and many beleive he was on the brink of another title before his retirement.
