Cooper Webb praising MXGP and ripping on MX Sports last night on Twitter:

The comments were so off the wall that Matthes insinuated that Webb's acct may have been hacked and Reed said "Oh know he didn't" regarding Webb's initial tweet promoting the upcoming Charlotte MXGP map:

"Looking good, can't wait for a 'real' MX series race to be held in the States"

Did something go down for Webb to say not only that but much more responding to fans on his original tweet, here's an example: Photo

It's rude to talk about religion. You never know who you're gonna offend

He commented on the 1st moto podium at MC that he saw a bunch of tractors out there after 450s and that they ruined it.

I agree,the lap times dropped like 6 seconds.

A lot of guys in the back 20 have trouble with long rutts . Maybe they complain,or maybe they want the bikes looking fast ,i dunno.

If it was up to me I'd work the start and domnhill so everyone can clear the start,the rest should go to hell and be left alone.

The few highspeed jumps could be fixed for safety to i guess.

I hate whiners. He has a choice. Quit and race the GPS.

Is he talking about Charlotte GP? Cause my impression of the consensus here was that it was going to be the worst GP of all time and a disgrace to Motocross around the world. Webb needs to get on the Vitard trainlaughing

I'm referring to his original tweet.

About all the tractors touched after practice was the start down to the triple at the bottom of the hill.

If they did anything to "ruin" it, then it sure worked out pretty good for Webb.

Mxsports made him do the press conference after high point. Told him if he skipped it he'd get last gate pick at the next round or something like that.

Hes been handing out middle fingers all year, now its directed at mxsports.

It's the dirt more than the prep... Rip watered sand all you like, won't make much difference. Rip and water clay and it still firms up, crusty ruts, shiny spots...

All the added organic material ripped and watered, makes it almost rubbery... so you get gooey dirt that doesn't break down through the day and long balance beam ruts... like the bottom of Red Bud.

we always hear about how great MX sports is because its owner also owns the biggest moto media company. conflict of interest

Chuck Norris is the reason why Waldo is hiding.

Reed's comment of "we could make terrible teammates" was pretty funny .

Factory Yamaha will have fun keeping both Reed and Webb in check for 2017.

Long overdue in my opinion (Webb's comments), however, realistically it doesn't seem like anything is going to improve any time soon.

Just your average moto genius.

6/30/2016 7:08 AM

Oh look, it's Cooper Webb complaining.

Wants to be seen as a professional...

Literally says on the podium "Dem French don't want none".

I disagree with DC on some things, but the GPs are not better than the Nats. I don't think Webb has looked at the GP program as a whole.

|

6/30/2016 7:17 AM

I'm waiting for the "it was taken out of context" excuse.

|

6/30/2016 7:34 AM

Love watching Webb race. But I kinda cringe when he speaks, because I wonder what kind of shit is going to come out of his mouth. It does add to the drama, though.

Bet Star is rethinking sabotaging the Martin's bikes now...







Just kidding......

Well he raced GH and the MXdN.
Ernee is an awesome facility, very professional. GH not too shabby either.
so that's probably where he makes these statements off.
If he went to Thailand or Mexico he would maybe think differently.

I understand you guys think you have this whole scenario pegged with Cooper complaining. Don't you think behind the curtain, more goes on with the top guys than many of the general public know about?

6/30/2016 7:43 AM

Matthes said his account got hacked last night. Whether that's true or not I don't know.

|

6/30/2016 7:50 AM

Obviously he has never raced in Thailand and rested in an empty sea container with no A/C

I like people who speak their mind. What I don´t like is the "motocross thought-police" who force you to retract your opinion because you could happen to butt-hurt someone in the industry.
People are different, if that is his opinion - great. If it isn´t - that is also great.

It's not that he is speaking his mind so much as.....

I agree. The tv package sucks, I don't even try to watch anymore. And the GP series isnt perfect but it does seem much more profesional. It hurts to say this. I almost think the top GP guys are faster nowadays also.

Chad Reed stated more or less the same:

http://pulpmx.com/stories/reed-paulin-covington-interviews

Some of the things about GP’s, like the wash bays, which I love, it’s way better. The pit lane thing is really cool to watch. The mechanics area is good. There’s some things that I don’t think are as good as the US Nationals but overall it’s a different series, different vibe. I like some of the things they do over here.

I enjoy it. I would like to hear what you don’t think is not as good.

I think some of the tracks blow.

The tracks suck but our tracks suck too, to be honest. I think that tracks in general worldwide there just seems to be a theme that everybody’s going for – the woodchips, the sand, the dirt. So I think that that’s a worldwide virus at this point. I don’t think that’s one here or there. I don’t love really short lap times like we had today. Having the amateur kids here with us felt like a Thursday afternoon with the way the track was working. If I had a bone setting I think I’d be stoked today. Thursday afternoon at Glen Helen. But for me I think that it’s my personal opinion we’re at a world championship and I think it feels like that.

When you go to a national championship it feels like that. Both people are making a lot of money. I think that here you can see the money getting put back into it. There’s things around the track and the way they do the start, the way they do the mechanics. There’s an effort going back that you can see. For me, it hasn’t changed over the last fifteen years in the US, so somebody’s getting very rich. But you can’t see anything for it. So that would be my biggest thing.

Really funny! I like Webb way more now!

Btw did you guys listen to the interviews that Matthes did after the Italian GP? He interviewed Reed and Reed pretty much say similar things like Webb on Twitter.
