Cooper Webb isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. At the KTM press intro today in California, KTM announced it has agreed to a two-year extension with the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross Champion.
After winning the 2019 title, Webb suffered a back injury at Arlington Supercross which took him out of the title hunt and ultimately sidelined him for most of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross.
Webb joined the team in 2019 after two years with Monster Energy Yamaha.
Webb will be joined by the returning Marvin Musquin in 2021.
Ian Harrison, Team Manager: “We are very confident in Marvin and Cooper for the 2021 season. Marvin has been with KTM North America for a decade now and has always competed at the highest level. Having missed the 2020 season, he is eager to get back to racing SX and being healthy is a big part of the puzzle. We plan to start testing this week to fine tune our 2021 machine – we have a few new components to test and work with that should help Marvin improve his bike setup. We are looking forward to what Marvin can do in 2021, him being with long-time mechanic Frank Latham puts him in good hands.Cooper has a lot of experience coming into 2021 and we are very excited to see how things progress now that he has been with us for two years. Along with his mechanic, Carlos Rivera, I feel we are all at a point where we understand each other’s strengths and that leads to better bike setup and race day changes. Cooper also has a clean bill of health, so we are confident that he will be ready to keep the momentum rolling into 2021.”
