In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We'll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory…

 

Dean Wilson is one of the feel-good success stories of the year. After failing to secure a ride for 2017, the Scotsman put together a modest privateer program aboard Yamahas and planned to contest the opening West Coast rounds of the Monster Energy Supercross Series in hopes of attracting the attention of a factory team. The former 250 National Champion’s efforts paid off as he was signed by the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team and went on to finish eighth overall in the toughest series in the world.

With a complete – and healthy – series behind him, Wilson will finally get to showcase his potential on a 450 this summer in the Lucas Oil MX Nationals. We’re looking forward to seeing evn better things from Deano in the coming months.
