Dean Wilson, riding for Canidae Motosport Xtreme Team Green Kawasaki, established himself the golden boy of up coming motocross stars. Wilson rode near flawlessly during the week-long Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National event.
The second moto of the week proved to be Wilson’s only frail point. A third place finish in moto one of the muddy 250 A class started Wilson’s Championship on shaky ground. However, the following four motos, in the 250 A and 450 A/Pro Sport, respectively, allowed Wilson to find his prowess.
Wilson was no flash in the pan. Including the third place effort in moto one of 250 A, Wilson lead an astonishing 74% laps (60 laps in total) turned in his two classes. He wasn’t just out front, either. He was flying. In the final moto of Dean Wilson’s 2009 Amateur Championship, he would go on to throw down three laps under the two minute mark. In the second lap of the final 450 A/Pro Sport moto, Dean-O dropped a bombshell time: 1:58.95. Not only would this be the best lap of the week, he would complete the third and fourth laps of the moto both in 1:59.59.
Dean’s combined 11 previous national championships in 2009, with six moto wins in the Canadian outdoor CMRC national series, along with his throttle twisting grit and mental focus helped to earn the young rider the most prestigious award of the week; the Horizon Award. The Horizon Award is given yearly to the rider showing the most promise in an upcoming professional career. Past recipients for the Horizon Award include phenoms such as Josh Hill, Ryan Villopoto, James Stewart, Jr., Travis Pastrana, and Nick Wey.
