DEAN WILSON OUT FOR REMAINDER OF THE 2020 AMA PRO MOTOCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP WITH KNEE INJURY
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. Wilson was in 10th place on the points chase after five rounds.
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. Generally, meniscus repairs for athletes are fairly mild and should be back on the bike in less than six weeks if everything goes as planned.
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.”
