Is that enough facts for you Js217 or do you need more pics and a video for it to be official?

For the 2019 season. Looks like he's on a 1 year deal?

How else would they word it? Theyre literally welcoming him to the RedBull Factory KTM team for the 2019 season.

I see big things coming for Webb. He has all the tools necessary to be a top rider. Hes one of if not the most accomplished 250 rider that is now in the 450s. Hes a 2 time sx champ and 1 time mx champ. That doesnt happen by accident. I feel like his 450 career got off on the wrong foot with the older bike that he hated and early injuries that derailed his confidence early on. For whatever reason he never really got going after that, and I feel like the team never pushed him enough after that rough start. Hopefully with this fresh start.. its just that, a fresh start. Its almost impossible to not get better under Aldon and hes said himself that he hates training... I mean everyone does tbh. Hes going to be up against Marvin every day and that along with Aldon will definitely make him better. Hes had a better career than Marvin has so far with his 250 championships and it took Marvin years just to get his first win on the 450. If he gets that killer instinct back he should be fine. I feel like the KTM suits him more too as a high revving light and nimble bike. Should be interesting to see how he does. Much more upside on this gamble than just a top 8 guy in tickle.

Do people still think he’s riding for another team or is this enough to change their minds? Lol

|

10/1/2018 4:12 PM

Ears tucked in and ready to go?

|

10/1/2018 4:12 PM

I think the change will do him good.

BUT.......we will have to wait and see how this works out in the long run. I believe he's setup to start training with Aldon. The down side to that is..... he'll be training with Aldon! It's a pretty well known fact that Cooper Hate's training. So he's either decided to step up , and train the way he's suppose to....or burn the hell out.

Everything thing he'll ever need , will be right there in front of him. Ball is in his court. Step up or flop.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I am gonna guess his finishes will be no better on the orange bike. If it is a one year deal KTM may not have a ton of faith in Webb's ability to be an elite 450 rider, or they have their eye one someone else that will be available in 2020. Either way I wish him the best, I just don't have a ton confidence in him.

Thought he was on a 2 year deal so seeing just for 2019 is surprising to me.

Guessing he has an option for a second year depending on how he does if not, I wonder who they have their eye on? AC? He'll be on the market and money talks.

Just saw that but there's no mention of it in the official PR and TWMX also said for 2019.

He's got no excuses to not get good results now. Arguably one of the top bikes, one of the top teams and one of the top trainers. If he doesn't get results I'd say his career of trying to be one of the top guys is over.

With that said I really hope this does help him become one of the top guys to be challenging Tomac, Roczen and Marv.

He will do good. Hopefully he has or will grow out of the little chip on his shoulder he’s had the last 2 years. Podiums are comming.

10/1/2018 5:00 PM

Well.... I certainly didn't see this coming grin

10/1/2018 5:14 PM

This ought to be good because the last I heard, Frenchie don't want none!

Who's getting the first slap in the rig? w00t

Great to see this announcement finally made, probably one of the worst kept secrets in the sport this year, but due to contracts with old and new teams they had to wait for an official announcement....congrats to Webb and KTM, hope it works out, I have my doubts on Webb’s results changing much, but hope it works out well for all involved. Wonder how Marv and Webb do under the same tent???

Any other rider/team announcements made today? Haven’t seen any anywhere....
