Dean Wilson announced on Instagram that he will return to the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team for 2020. Wilson said in his post, "I am very happy and grateful for another great year with these guys."
Wilson, who rode for the team in 2017 and 2018, started 2019 as a semi-privateer in Monster Energy AMA Supercross. After pitting out of a van (while receiving help from the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team) for the first five rounds, Wilson was signed by the team after defending 450SX champion Jason Anderson went down with an injury during practice the week leading into the Oakland Supercross. At that time, 450SX rookie Zach Osborne was still sidelined with his collarbone injury, so when Anderson went down the team was without a rider in the 450SX.
Wilson was brought on and recorded seven top-ten finishes, including a third-place finish in Houston, before his season was cut short when he went down in the Denver Supercross with an injury. He finished sixth in the 450SX points standings.
The injury kept him sidelined for the first few rounds of the 2019 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship but Wilson made his return at RedBud, where he finished 12-7 for ninth overall.
The full details of the deal were not announced. Below is Wilson's full post.
