Deano has taken to Instagram today (January 23) to unfortunately announce that he has been injured during practice yesterday.

Dean Wilson’s post reads:

As my results haven’t been the greatest I was excited to keep building my results better and better each weekend. Yesterday was one of the toughest days I have had in my career. Just a normal Thursday training in the middle of my moto when I made a mistake at the KTM test track.


I am so gutted and disappointed to say that I have torn my ACL and MCL and will be getting surgery next week.

Yesterday while I was on the way to the hospital looking out the window at the mountains I was contemplating on quitting and just get a real job and live a normal life.

It just seems to be a continuous streak lately and the disappointment is just killing me as a person…. But I know how much I am capable of achieving and how much I love this sport when things are going good.

But sometimes it can just be so cruel. I have the best sponsors and people that I can’t thank enough for their love and loyal support. And thx to all my fans for the support to. I wish I could be racing this weekend. But god has another plan for me.

Thx to @ktmusa @redbull @ansrmx @ride100percent @atlasbrace @shoeihelmetsusa @alpinestars @toyotaescondido @maniacwrench @nlsportsinc @ridecalifornia @step1fitness

We say hang in there Deano. You’ve got great support and it’ll all be worth it when you’re taking podiums again.
