MX / Cooper Webb
Cooper Webb had a successful rookie season including an overall podium at the final Outdoor National round at Lake Elsinore. Although he will be a rookie to Supercross on a 250 in 2014, he did race a 450 at the MEC as well as Bercy SX to get some experience coming in. Cooper will certainly be a podium threat in his first full season.

- How did you start riding: Long story short my dad got a bike and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. He would take me riding on the gas tank of his bike and I wanted to get my own but he wouldn’t get me one. So I made a bet with him that if I could ride my bike with no training wheels he’d get me one. That day me and my mom went to the backyard and rode my bike with training wheels. Then my dad still wouldn’t get me a bike but my mom pressured him into getting me one.
