What’s up everyone. First off I wanted to thank everybody for reaching out to me. I really appreciate it. I Was feeling really good, fit and ready for monster cup. Started the day off fastest in the first free practice & P3 in qualifier 1. 2nd qualifier I was putting 2 laps together. I jumped the quad the lap prior before my crash. As I came around the 2nd lap I hit the jump face a couple inches over from where I was the lap before. With the track being ran forwards and backwards I hit just a worn down part of the lip that didn’t give me the pop to get over it. I came up short and got ejected off the bike last lap of practice of course and suffered a fractured and dislocated hip. By far the most pain I have ever been in my life. I’m glad I waited a couple days to post this as I was down in the dumps but now I feel better and ready to heal up. I hate that this happened but it’s motocross this shit happens, I can’t control it. As much as I don’t really look at negative comments about me sometimes some people do piss me off with there arrogance and it will get the best of me. But it’s just the way it goes. I never wanted to be that person that was injured obviously. But that’s my journey and I’m gonna stick to my script keep working hard doing all I can to be the best I can. Thank you to my Team @rockstarhusky , My family , Friends and fans for sticking behind me – Dean
