COOPER WEBB AND JASON ANDERSON TO SIT OUT THE 2019 MONSTER ENERGY CUP
COOPER WEBB TO SIT OUT THE 2019 MONSTER ENERGY CUP SUPERCROSS
The 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Champion Cooper Webb has announced that he will not be racing the 2019 Monster Energy Cup this Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although he competed in the Red Bull Straight Rhythm, Cooper and the KTM team have decided to play it smart and skip out on the MEC this year. Cooper’s teammate Marvin Musquin will also sit out the MEC due to a knee injury that he sustained at the final round of the Pro Motocross series at the Ironman track in Indiana.
Cooper posted via instagram: “Little update for everyone. I will not be racing MEC this weekend. With only 3 days of riding on the 450 so far @ktmusa and I decided it would be best to skip this race and focus on preparation and testing for 2020 SX.”
JASON ANDERSON OUT FOR MONSTER ENERGY CUP
Jason Anderson has also announced that he will not be racing either.
After spending a month in Europe training for and racing the 2019 Motocross of Nations, Jason Anderson and the Rockstar Husqvarna team have decided to sit out the Monster Cup. Coming into the offseason Jason and his team had big plans to compete in the MXON, the Red Bull Straight Rhythm and MEC, but after only a few days of riding the two-stroke, Jason and the team decided that it would be best to sit out the Red Bull Straight Rhythm and Monster Cup to let his body recover and prepare for the 2020 Supercross and motocross seasons. As of now, we do believe that Jason will still compete in the SX Open in Auckland, New Zealand on November 16th and the AUX-X Open in Melbourne, Australia November 30th.
