It’s no secret that Red Bull KTM hasn’t quite had the start to the 2022 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship that they would have hoped. With Cooper Webb earning just one podium at the opening round and teammates Marvin Musquin and Aaron Plessinger having up and down rides through four rounds, the boys in orange are keen to get back on the right track. We caught up with each of them today at press day for round five in Glendale and here’s what they had to say.
Cooper Webb has admitted that he and the KTM squad are struggling with finding the ideal set-up on the new KTM in what could be a pivotal round five for the defending champion who can’t afford to lose much more ground to the title contenders as he searches for a bike set-up to feel more comfortable at race time.
“It’s been up and down for sure, we have been trying a lot of stuff and that’s what’s tough too, when you are racing a different bike every weekend, it’s hard to get comfortable. I feel like we went out of the ball park this week and went back to some things we did on the old bike and I think it definitely translated pretty good. So we will see, we are here at press to see if that will give us a better feel for the race tracks oppose to our practice tracks and hoping we got batter.”
