Popular Rockstar Energy Husqvarna rider Dean Wilson suffered a huge crash in qualifying last Saturday afternoon at the Monster Energy Cup. Dean appeared to clip the landing in a huge rhythm lane and went down hard, immediately holding his leg/hip area. A press release from his team now indicates Dean suffered a dislocated hip. The overall severity of the injury--and a time table for Dean's recovery--will have to wait. Get well soon, Dean!
