 2020 Season Recap

Dean Wilson got off to a slow start in his 2020 Supercross season but quickly reeled things in once the season ramped up again in Salt Lake City. Wilson was able to put together five top 10 finishes including a major third place podium finish in round 17. This second half of the season push that Wilson was able to make landed him an eighth-place finish in the season ending standings, just two places shy of where he ended up in 2019. 

 2021 Outlook

Wilson and the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will look to build on this consistent success and hopefully turn in a few more podium finishes in 2021 that Wilson is more than capable at achieving. Wilson suffered a small tear in his meniscus during his outdoor Motocross season but is back to riding on the bike and is expected to be fully prepared on the start gate in Houston come January.
