Injured Wilson out for the rest of the outdoors
Dean Wilson won’t be racing the final few rounds of the US motocross season due to a knee injury sustained in the practice.
The Scot hadn’t been getting the results he wanted but was determined to improve before the end of the year only for injury to strike again.
Wilson however, has the security of another year with Rockstar Husqvarna so can heal up without stress and get ready for supercross in 2021.
See the official press release below:
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team’s Dean Wilson will miss the remainder of the 2020 AMA Pro Motocross Championship due to a knee injury sustained during a practice incident last week.
After further review, it was determined that Wilson will undergo surgery to repair a slight tear in his left meniscus and he will begin the recovery process in order to be prepared for the 2021 AMA Supercross Championship.
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Stephen Westfall: “It’s unfortunate that Dean had an incident while practicing. We all agreed that it’s best to get it fixed now to be 100% for the start of Supercross. We wish Dean all the best and a speedy recovery.”
Wilson updated his social media saying, “it’s nothing too crazy.” But says he is getting surgery on his torn meniscus.
