The offseason continues with teams figuring out their budgets and rosters for 2019, but with this comes unfortunate realizations that riders may not be linked to originally expected deals. That has occurred between Dean Wilson and the Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna team, as Wilson has announced that he will not return to the factory effort in 2019. There had been talk that Husqvarna could figure out a way to field three riders in the 450 class with Wilson staying on the team alongside defending Supercross champion Jason Anderson and incoming rookie Zach Osborne, but it’s come out that it will not happen which means Wilson will be left out.

Wilson spent two seasons with Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna, a deal that came up as a result of Wilson’s privateer status in early 2017 and Christophe Pourcel’s midseason retirement. Wilson spent much of 2018 on the sidelines due to injuries sustained at the opening round of the Supercross season and then a torn ACL due to a practice incident before the first National.

Wilson states that he has no deal lined up for any team in 2019 and hints that he may have to return to a privateer program in hopes of something coming along.
