Thor/Parts Unlimited Update
For being a rookie and one of the youngest riders in professional motocross, Dean Wilson has been with Thor long enough to be considered a veteran. This season marks the fourth year that Wilson has been in Thor gear dating back to his amateur days.
We caught up with the Thor veteran to get his thoughts on the Supercross season now that a couple weeks have gone by. Wilson also got us up to speed on his goals for the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship, where he will no doubt be in the mix for the 250cc title. You can see the complete video by clicking on the photo above, or by visiting thormx.com, YouTube, or Facebook.
At the opening round of the series last weekend in Hangtown, Wilson finished the day sixth overall, and looked very strong in the second moto with a fourth place finish. There is no doubt this young rider has the speed to compete week in and week out, and it should be exciting to watch.
