Crazy night in the 450SX main event in Detroit, Michigan, on Saturday night, as Chase Sexton landed on Cooper Webb and both riders crawled to the side of the track in obvious pain. Incredibly, Webb remounted his KTM 450 SX-F and circulated for a couple of laps with just one arm on the handlebars. Eventually, however, he accepted his fate and opted to head to the Alpinestars medics for further evaluation. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team provided this update shortly after the main event.
“It’s fair to say that Cooper was pretty banged up when he was landed on. Upon initial observation by the doctor here at the track of his shoulder and hand, it doesn’t appear that anything is broken, but he plans to have further evaluation and x-rays when he returns home to Florida on Monday.”
Webb already faced a mighty deficit in the premier-class standings entering round ten of 2022 Monster Energy Supercross, but now trails by fifty-six points with just seven rounds remaining. Webb is, shockingly, yet to claim a race victory in his title defence.
