DEAN WILSON INJURED AT DENVER SUPERCROSS
View this post on Instagram
Such a massive gut punch on Saturday. Just as I was gaining good momentum riding well, feeling good and chasing my first win things turned in the blink of an eye. Started off Denver topping free practice then went on to qualify P1 in qualifier 1. Qualifier 2 didn’t get the cleanest laps but ended with a 4th. On to the main event I was running around 7th on lap 7 moving forward and as I came around for the rhythm section I tripled in and something freak happened causing the bike to nose dive after I tripled in and pile driving me into the ground. The tough part of this is I have been trying so hard this year to be back where I need to be trying to get a job for next year. It’s tough just hoping to have a ride each year. 2nd part is people saying “wilson’s hurt again, big surprise there” when it was something that wasn’t my fault. It’s a tough pill To swallow.. I injured my shoulder and got a contusion on my kidneys. Got MRI and good news is I dodged a bullet on my shoulder and I am just going to give it a few weeks of rest and therapy and see where we are at. Huge disappointment to end my SX season like this. Thanks to my whole team for everything and everybody checking in on me. I really appreciate it. I will be back.
Dean Wilson suffered an injured shoulder and a contusion on his kidneys in this crash during the 450 Main Event at round 15 of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season in Denver. The Rockstar Husqvarna fill in rider has had a solid 2019 season with his best finish being a third just two rounds prior in Houston. Dean’s plans for 2020 were already unknown as he hasn’t signed with any teams yet. This injury will make finding a contract for 2020 even harder. We are sad to see him out with an injury and we wish him the best in his recovery process.
