How does one have such incredible luck?

This post is about cooper webb.. im just curious if the dude is carrying a lucky rabbit foot or went to a voodoo priest or something.

If i was tomac i woulda punted him so far off the track, they would tried to ban me from racing.

Osborne and tomac pushing hard and crashing isn’t luck, but when it’s your year it’s your year

You don’t win a SX Championship on luck. Dude is mental NAILS...fun race

Kevin Windham‏ @kdub_14

Not 1factory racer hasnt been told that if ucan help teammate out, then do it 4 championship. Few r in a position like MM25 #partofthesport

especially when you look at tonight individually
Tomac- showed his problems under pressure he’s had his whole career
Osborne- rookie trying to win first sx and made a mistake

|

Luck. Even he cant believe how much luck he is having.

|

Not making mistakes like everyone else isn't luck, it is talent.

“Luck” is winning the lottery.

When preparation meets opportunity, thats when the results come. Thats not luck at all. Luck is total bullshit. Cooper did the work and put himself in the position every weekend this year.

Saying he had “luck” is kindof rude after all the work he put in.

You don't get lucky 16 weekends in a row. Guys pushing hard tend to crash, or have you never ridden a bike?

|

He was lucky not to crash on that front end wash as tomac and osbourne we unlucky to not save theirs...

No its not rude... He has luck to not have been punted off the track .. or luck not getting taken out on the start like musquin... Lucky to save the front end and still make the turn... That's all luck and not preparation.. every rider trains hard as hell.. but some do end up with shit luck... So brings me back to how is this dude so lucky this season racing?

Was Ryan Dungey lucky? No. He was fast and consistent, amidst periodically erratic competition.

|

4/27/2019 5:14 PM

Ya no luck, you’re rude!

|

4/27/2019 5:14 PM

Luck wasn't a factor on that track tonight. I haven't ever been a fan of Coop, but nobody deserves this title more than him. That kid has earned every single point. The kid was drooling during his interview for fucks sake

Its Putting in the Work and believing in yourself , The Law of Attraction and The universe or God whichever you want to call it will do the Rest.

Btw im not saying the title is luck
Thats hard work and consistency..


Its the general avoidance of any sort of errant issue, that grabs other people. During sx seasons especially thats mind blowing.. even dungey had more errant issues for his first title

Hate to admit it but Webb has made the rest of the field look silly. They're all crashing their brains out while he cruises to the checkers plain sailing without drama. Bring on Outdoors.

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not too sure.

4/27/2019 5:20 PM

Man it hurts being a Tomac fan

|

4/27/2019 5:25 PM

If its their bad luck, then he is indeed lucky and opportunistic

I dont think Webb got lucky at all this year . What other people do has nothing to do with Webb. But I hate when RC say s you make your own luck . RC had some hugggggeee crashes and just got up . He got lucky many times . Other rider s had tiny crashes and had big injures .

Even That isn't always Luck, there are Guys that are better at crashing, Sounds dumb i know but i believe its true, also being it Super good shape Helps, as does flexibility.

Grow up with a trampoline in your yard and learn how to crash.

If Eli wins the Championship....THAT will be luck. Webb has not cracked ONCE under pressure this year. You nailed it....mental toughness.

This. You win titles having the least mistakes. All I could think watching him tonite was how Dungey-like he was. Chaos all around him wasn't the outfits fastest though he did win. He would have taken 2nd or 3rd if he had to.

Webb is going to be a pain in the dick for everyone else for the foreseeable future. Aldon is literally going to write that kids name all over the record books.

He’s not lucky. He’s good and others have made mistakes or been unlucky. What does Webb have to do to be considered the real deal for some of you here? Win , lose or draw this SX championship the guy is for real.

I hope he does the same thing out doors.

Exactly. This luck or gift bullshit has to stop.

Cooper has earned this 100% and any insinuation otherwise is a bit disrespectful.

Just like they kept saying Sexton got a "gift" from Forkner. Bullshit. Forkner caused his own misery and Sexton never quit. Hardly a gift.
