 2020 Season Recap

After being tested time and time again, Cooper Webb pulled off an impressive second-place season finish in his 2020 450SX campaign. After suffering a crash in Arlington that many thought he wouldn’t bounce back from, Webb got back on the bike and pushed through the pain giving everything he had to hold onto his title. It turned out to be just short of getting the job done, however, Webb’s 2020 season was a true testament to what he’s made of moving forward.

 2021 Outlook

After suffering a season-ending back injury in the 2020 Outdoor Motocross championship series, Webb’s 2021 focus is getting off to a healthy start come January and reclaiming his Supercross title back from Eli Tomac.
