2018 Season Recap:

Following a successful off-season, many people had high hopes for the Scotsman heading into the 2018 season, however, a crash during qualifying at the season opener in Anaheim left him playing catch-up. Wilson would miss the opening two rounds due to injury, but slowly regained form as the season continued and earned a career best second place finish in the 450SX Class at Indianapolis. Despite his slow start to the season, he used consistency to finish the season seventh in the championship standings.

 

2019 Projections:

Derailed by another injury during the 2018 outdoor MX season, it was still expected that he would retain his third spot at the factory Rockstar Husqvarna team, but the deal to field three 450SX riders fell through. Wilson was able to secure a very high level of support from Husqvarna, WP and Rockstar Energy that will carry him through the opening rounds of the SX series, while allowing him the option to take a fill-in ride should the opportunity arise. Now back to his full privateer days of a couple years ago, the Scotland native Wilson is more determined than ever to get his factory seat back.
