Deano was born in Scotland but was raised in Calgary, Canada where his racing career would begin. It did not take long for the industry to take notice of his incredible talent and he was soon placed on Kawasaki’s Team Green amateur program.

He would go on to win 13 amateur national championships, along with the AMA Horizon Award in 2009 after winning the 250A and 450A/Pro Sport classes at Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National Motocross Championships.

Making his debut in the AMA Supercross Lites East Region, Dean would earn himelf 2 podium finishes and end up 6th overall despite having to miss two rounds due to travel implications. He would take this success and build into 2011 where he won his first AMA Motocross 250cc Championship aboard his Factory Pro Circuit Kawasaki.

In 2013, bad luck striked as Wilson suffered a very serious injury that kept him out of the rest of the supercross series and once healed he was struck again 2 rounds into outdoors which would keep him on the sidelines. Injuries continued after signing with RedBull KTM where he planned to contest both supercorss and motocross series. Unfortunately, injuries would again change his plans as back to back knee injuries kept him off the bike for the majority of the year.

In search of a ride at the beginning of 2017, Dean put together a privateer effort on a Yamaha with support from his family and key sponsors he was able to get back to form. Pitting out of the back of a sprinter van, Dean was able to catch the attention of Factory Rockstar Energy Husqvarna and landed a fill-in role for the rest of supercross. This deal then turned into a 2-year extension when the results kept pouring in.

For 2018 and beyond Dean Wilson will contest both supercross and outdoor motocross series aboard his Factory Rockstar Energy Husqvarna, wearing Fox Instinct Boots, Fox V3 Helmets and Fox Vue Goggles.
