Professional Motocross Racer Dresses As 80 Year Old Grandpa, And Pranks Kids At The Track

You guys know how much we love a good prank video, and this one is one of the best ones we’ve seen in a long time! Not only does it involve a good disguise, there’s kids getting in on the fun, and some great “WTF just happened” looks on the faces of the people who aren’t in on the joke. There aren’t really victims, per se, in this prank, just a group of guys who had no idea what was in store for them.

The star of the show is professional motocross and supercross rider Dean Wilson, a racer who typically spends his weekends racing handlebar-to-handlebar with the other top competitors in the MX and SX worlds. Today, though, Dean has something else in mind. Wilson has a makeup artist age him a few decades and he adopts the persona of Uncle Earl, a longtime fan of the racers he and his “grandson” Colton.

The ruse is that Earl and Colton are just hanging out to watch these pro riders practice, but Uncle Earl gets a hankering to ride, so he suits up and goes head to head with Colt Nichols, who was clearly not expecting an “elderly old guy” to not only hang with him, but lay down a quicker lap than he did. Wilson, as Earl, continues to turn heads when he hits the big freestyle ramp and lands a huge jump like a seasoned pro. From what I can tell, Wilson doesn’t do freestyle, but he’s so experienced in controlling a bike, he still manages to land the huge air like it’s nothing.

The only thing missing from this video is the big reveal, which would have made for an interesting ending, but I guess it’s fair to say the guys racing with Uncle Earl are probably seeing this now and putting the pieces together. It looks like everybody had a great time, so maybe Earl and Colton will make a few more appearances to have some fun with other pro motocross and supercross racers.
