 2020 Season Recap

Cooper returned to the 250SX Western Regional Class in 2020 and showed off his ability to take control of races and consistently be in the hunt for podium finishes. Cooper got his season off to a hot start by grabbing the Round 1 victory in Anaheim and following it up with four additional podium finishes throughout the duration of the season. Ultimately, Cooper fell just short of taking the crown come to the season's end, taking second place with 180 points to a teammate, Dylan Ferrandis.

 2021 Outlook

Cooper announced this past October that he has resigned from the Monster Energy/Star Racing/ Yamaha team for the remainder of his 250Sx career. Cooper and team developed great momentum coming out of the 2020 Supercross season and with teammate Dylan Ferrandis moving up to the 450SX Class, all eyes are on Cooper to take home the crown and continue the Yamaha win streak.
