Hailing from Jindabyne, NSW, the NSWIS rider made his World Cup debut at the Olympic test event in Bokwang, Korea, in February 2016, finishing in 20th place.
At the opening World Cup of the 2017-2018 season, Dickson recorded a personal best 12th place in Cerro Catedral, Argentina.
Unfortunately Dickson just missed out on qualification to the Australian team for the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games, but showed plenty of promise to be offered a contract with the Olympic Winter Institute ahead of the 2018-2019 World Cup season.
