Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb has suffered a setback in round 15 after a dangerous incident in the first 450 heat race. Despite a promising start, Webb lost control of his motorcycle and crashed early on, resulting in a violent collision with Adam Cianciarulo who was closely following him.
Unfortunately, the collision caused Cianciarulo’s front wheel to hit Webb’s head, leading to his possible withdrawal from the race. However, Webb’s wife Mariah Webb took to social media to confirm that her husband’s results were clear and he had been sent home. The unfortunate incident is a stark reminder of the dangers of the sport and the importance of safety measures to protect the riders.
Mariah Webb posted – Good to hear the news, sad it happened to Webb last night though. “final results were all clear, he’s being sent home. I know without a shadow of a doubt. God had his hand in this, we cannot say thank you to everyone enough for all the prayers” – Mariah
