We caught up with the friendly Scanadian (Scottish Canadian) Dean Wilson at the recent Husqvarna FC 450 Rockstar Edition Launch above downtown Los Angeles. Last year he didn’t have a ride lined up at the beginning of the Supercross season but that didn’t stop him and his dad from showing up and putting in the work. That work paid off with Husqvarna grabbing him after the fourth round. After that, he put in a great Outdoors season with a fourth overall at the end of the summer. Then, he strung together some awesome off-season race results. Hopefully he can keep the pace up and come into next year’s SX series ready to go.

We’ve seen brilliant rides from Deano in the past. Hopefully the new bike and setting will make that more of a regular occurrence.Husqvarna
