Dean Wilson has battled his way to a top-10 finish at Petco Park in San Diego, CA for the sixth round of AMA Supercross on Saturday.
Wilson has been struggeling to overcome a shoulder injury sustained at Anaheim and is slowly working his way back to fitness. With the riguors of the supercross season requiring a rider to be on the gate week after week, recovery can be a long process.
The The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing was top 10 at the start of his heat and was riding smooth before having to maneuver around a downed rider which caused him to go down.
He remounted in 14th and worked his way up to a ninth place finish to transfer to the 450 Main Event. He was mid pack at the start of the Main and rode steady in 11th before charging into the top-10 halfway through the race. He stayed focused and finished ninth.
