Fresh off of re-signing with the Rockstar Energy / Husqvarna factory racing team for the 2021 season, Dean Wilson went down hard in a practice crash and is now forced to sit out the remainder of the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. The #15 will have surgery on his knee to repair a torn meniscus.
While it is a bum deal for Deano, at least this is one of those rare moments where he has some job security when dealing with an injury. He will miss the remainder of MX, but this is a relatively minor procedure so we should see Dean back on the bike pretty quickly after his surgery. You can check out the teams PR on the situation 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.”
