Dean Wilson added to Supercross line-up at Mt Smart Stadium
The Monster Energy S-X Open Auckland is shaping up to be a grand slam of the world‰Ûªs best superstars this year, with the flying Scotsman - Dean Wilson confirmed for the November 24 blockbuster inside Mt Smart Stadium.

Wilson raced to a career-best seventh overall during this year‰Ûªs Monster Energy FIM World Supercross Championship despite missing rounds due to injury and included his first ever 450cc SX1 Supercross podium result.

Wilson won the Saturday Main-Event SX1 Final at the 2017 AUS-X Open and believes his experience in the southern hemisphere provides a perfect platform to bounce back into the international spotlight, as he looks to secure a ride for the 2019 World Supercross Championship.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm super excited to be coming to New Zealand and competing in the first ever S-X Open Auckland,‰Û

No stranger to adversity during his career, Wilson has rebounded from two horror seasons in both 2015 & 2016, with two consecutive knee reconstructions keeping him out of the sport for the best part of two years and subsequently losing his ride with the Factory Red Bull KTM team at the time.

Despite the struggle, Wilson created his own team at the beginning of 2017, travelling to the races with his dad in their box van until a ride opened up at Rockstar Energy Husqvarna factory team where he would stay for two years. As a first time visitor to New Zealand, Wilson is excited to take in as much of the country as he can in his short stay.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve never been to New Zealand before but it does look like a beautiful country, it‰Ûªs very green, nice rolling hills, it is a bit like Scotland. I really am looking forward to it.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm going to see as much as my can, but obviously, I need to get back to the States and get training. I‰Ûªm just lucky enough to get to go check it out. It‰Ûªs going to be super cool and I‰Ûªm looking forward to it.‰Û
