Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Dean Wilson, who is currently battling through the dreaded Epstein-Barr Virus, was having a good first moto at the RedBud National on Saturday, running inside the top 10 late in the race.
Unfortunately, Wilson had a big crash late in the 450 moto and sustained a bruise to his kidney/ liver area. He was unable to line up for the second 450 moto.
“It’s a disappointing way to end the weekend,” Wilson said in a post-race press release. “We were looking for a good first moto and with just two laps to go, I drug pegs off a rut on the tabletop and I had to step over the bars. It happened so fast and I landed on my feet luckily but I bruised my inside organs a little bit. Unfortunately, I have to sit today out, which is hard to take because I want to get good finishes and keep getting better but unfortunately, we had this. We’ll see if we can make next weekend.”
His status for round five on the championship at Southwick this weekend is still up in the air.
