A hip injury sustained during qualifying at the Monster Energy Cup over the weekend has cast uncertainty over Dean Wilson’s attendance at the Auckland and Melbourne stops of the 2019 S-X Open International FIM Oceania Supercross Championship next month.

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team released a statement yesterday, indicating the popular contender suffered a dislocated hip in the frightening fall.

The extent of the injury and subsequent recovery time is yet to be determined, however early reports suggest Wilson could be on the sidelines for an extended period of time.

It potentially rules him out of the Monster Energy S-X Open Auckland and AUS-X Open Melbourne rounds, scheduled for 16 November and 30 November respectively.

Both of the prestigious supercross races currently boast an incredible international line-up consisting of Chad Reed (Honda), Jason Anderson (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing), Joey Savatgy, and three-time Australian supercross champion Justin Brayton (Penrite Honda Racing).

Ricky Carmichael will also be on-hand at both stops, while New Zealand great and former world champion Ben Townley will be in attendance at the Auckland round.
