Dean Wilson joins Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing for 2017 Supercross and Motocross seasons
- Press Release -
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing is pleased to announce the addition of Dean Wilson to the 450 class line-up of the Supercross and Pro Motocross team. The final decision was made this week to welcome former 250 AMA Pro Motocross champ and fan-favorite to the team with hopes of seeing Wilson finish out the 2017 Supercross season with success and head into the 2017 Pro Motocross season prepared to take on the field. This weekend Wilson will head to Oakland, California for the 5th round of the 2017 Supercross series where he will race on the Husqvarna FC 450 for the first time.
Husqvarna Motorcycles is also excited to announce the expansion of its factory racing program to encompass the Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals in Canada for 2017. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Christophe Pourcel will spearhead that effort this summer as the team’s premier rider in our ongoing expanded global efforts in Canada. Christophe will take the remainder of the 2017 Supercross season off to allow ample time to fully recover from an injury that he sustained during the 2016 Pro Motocross season. He will also use this time to train to be a top performer at the Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals.
