THIS WEEK IN MXA #19: “I KNEW I GOT THIS GUY BEAT”
It has been fun to dissect the Cooper Webb versus Ken Roczen battle all season long. These two were the cream of the Supercross crop in 2021 and the next best rider, Eli Tomac, finished 62 points behind. In Episode 19 of our ‘This Week in MXA‘ series presented by O’Neal Racing, we hear from Cooper Webb about the moment he felt the momentum shift from the Honda team over to his side of the pits. We all know Cooper is mentally tough and ultra-smart on the track, but, at the beginning of the season, Ken Roczen was looking new and improved. The 2019 Champion, Cooper Webb, was off to a mediocre start at the beginning of the season, but he started clawing his way closer to the 94 and eventually brought the points gap down to just a 6 point deficit coming into Daytona. Then, as shown in this video, Cooper made it a point to run Roczen wide in the second turn and Kenny’s reactions after the race gave Cooper the extra bit of confidence he needed to motivate his championship run.
