So far, so good for returning Rockstar Energy Husqvarna star.

Improvements were made by Dean Wilson in St. Louis as he rides himself into race-fitness during the opening rounds of the Monster Energy Supercross season.

Wilson was a late inclusion for the start of the 2020 series after a swift recovery from a serious hip injury suffered at the Monster Energy Cup last year.

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna rider only began riding again in mid-December and has finished 13th in the 450SX main event at both Anaheim 1 and St. Louis.

“Tonight was a small improvement for me,” Wilson said. “I had a good start and ran in the top 10 for a few laps, but I’m just not prepared to be at that point. I just have to keep working and building from here.”

Currently ranked 14th in the point-standings following two of 17 races, the target for Wilson in these early rounds is to continue to gain fitness and seat-time aboard the factory FC 450 Rockstar Edition.
