After following the sometimes-arduous path to success for riders like three-time defending champion Ryan Villopoto, former champion Ryan Dungey, rookie star Ken Roczen, and up-and-coming youngsters Adam Cianciarulo and Jordon Smith in its first episode, Supercross: Behind the Dream shifts its focus to a pair of promising young riders and their journey. Both Dean Wilson and Wil Hahn have experienced success at the sport’s highest level, but their progression to the top couldn’t be more different.
Since entering the professional ranks in 2010, Wilson has been a rider to watch following a successful amateur career. A native of Scotland, who grew up in Canada, Wilson’s story was one that drew the attention of both the media and the industry as his family showed a willingness to sacrifice everything for Dean and his dream.
In 2011, Wilson began to realize his potential and was well on his way to becoming one of the sport’s biggest names. However, while battling for the Western Regional 250SX Class Championship in 2012, Wilson suffered an injury that would set off a string of heartbreaking moments that left him on the sidelines more than on the track for the next full season. Rejuvenated and more motivated than ever, Wilson has returned for the 2014 season in full health with his sights set on his first Monster Energy Supercross title. After a slow start to the season, Wilson has emerged as one of the hottest riders in the Western Regional 250SX Class, culminating with his first win of the season at the third race in Anaheim, Calif.
For Hahn, his journey to the pinnacle of the sport has been a patient one. Turning pro in 2008, Hahn waited three seasons before receiving the best opportunity of his career at GEICO Honda. While he himself battled through injuries and consistency out on the track, Hahn’s determination for success never wavered and after five full seasons of competition, he was able to win his first career 250SX Class Main Event in 2013 and carried the momentum to his first career Eastern Regional 250SX Class title. With years of experience and tremendous confidence working in his favor, Hahn entered the premier 450SX Class this season and has made consistent progress through the first quarter of the championship.
Since making his move into the premier 450SX Class on the heels of a Western Regional 250SX Class title in 2011, Jake Weimer has battled to make the most out of his opportunity to ride for a factory team at Monster Energy Kawasaki. Racing under the shadow of defending three-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion Ryan Villopoto since joining the team, Weimer has experienced the harsh ups and downs of the sport while his teammate and friend has emerged as the sport’s most dominant figure. In need of a fresh start, Weimer has gotten married and established his own routine in hopes of achieving the success he’s worked so hard to obtain during a contract year.
Reed has already established himself as one of the greatest riders in the history of the sport and carries the distinction of being the most successful international rider of all time, but the Australian endured his toughest season in 2013, both physically and mentally, forcing critics to suggest he should retire at age 31. With his own name at stake at TwoTwo Motorsports, Reed refused to quit and entered the 2014 with arguably more motivation and preparation than ever before. His rejuvenated outlook on racing made age nothing but a number as Reed set out to prove he’s still got what it takes to be considered the best in the world.
