Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb is now tied for the points lead with his rival Eli Tomac after sticking to his theme in Seattle and remaining consistent. Webb had a really good day, qualifying 9th, winning his heat race and finishing 2nd place in the main event.
What I want to focus on in this video is the return of the notorious ‘finger guns’ Webb gave to Sexton in the heat race. Webb coined this now legendary moment in supercross back in 2019 when Webb defeated his then title rival Ken Roczen, giving him the finger gun over the finish line. Webb went on to dominate and win his first 450 supercross title.
Well this weekend, Webb brought it back. So what does this mean? Does he feel like 2019 Webb? Webb was asked why he did it, his response was “Yeah man, it felt good… I hadn’t won a heat race all year and Chase is good in em so… It was a good deal you know, it’s one of those things that maybe make him get out of whack and lose focus, and it seems like it maybe worked.” Well there you have it.
Cooper Webb is known for playing passive mind games with his competitor’s. Maybe he’s in the same mindset he was back in 2019 and is trying to get back into his competitors’ heads
