With almost 1/2 the season left basically, does Marvin come back to race the SX series or just get ready for the outdoors?

As much as I'd like to see him race....he has nothing to gain and risks injury again before outdoors.

Support those who protect us....our military, law enforcement and 1st responders.

He's not in the top 20, so he's not eligible. Right?

|

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

Not a chance he is back before outdoors,

Have to imagine that the KTM team would like the potential ability to put more bodies between Cooper (should he be in the lead) and his competition.

Also have to think he isn't thrilled at the prospect of 7 supercrosses in 21 days after coming off of a knee surgery and then busting right into outdoors with little to be gained by racing SX besides helping Coop.

Here's to feeling good all the time

If Marvin wanted to race he’d be allowed, after points scorers, two digit numbers are given priority slots in the 40 riders selected to race each class at the final seven rounds. Same if Savatgy wanted to race.

Marvin has nothing to really gain by coming back now, not in the big picture

He can't win the title, only races

Better to go slow, stay the course

He is not on the bike yet, so I think he won't race.

But I am sure that if he was fully ready he would be there.

Ah, I see.
Thanks.

Nothing to gain.....um money?

I believe bonus money is much larger in SX than in MX...where its much harder to get an overall.

IMO he would be crazy not to race everything he possible can at his age.

Pretty sure Marv isn’t hurting in the $ department.

Seriously bros?.... wait for the press release. No need to be going there right now.

|

5/15/2020 12:45 PM

Has he been on bike yet? Seen just cycling photos from him so far.

|

5/15/2020 12:59 PM

His knee injury had to be pretty bad. A "normal" ACL injury would result in about 4-5 months of rehab (in some cases even less than 4 months), this is now over 6 months and he hasn't been on a bike yet.

|

If he's ready, I bet he would... But it doesn't sound like he is ready to go.

So I wouldn't expect to see him. That said, I hope that I am wrong.

Pretty sure he hasn't even started riding yet, I thought I saw a post saying he may not even be 100% by the time outdoors start

..you assume there will actually be outdoor pro motocross this year?

They already said that they would not run the series without spectators, and a race that allows thousands of fans in one place seems highly unlikely at this point, as shitty as it is.

Who would KTM show to the 'Coop coming' board if so?

COOPER WEBB AND RED BULL KTM ARE ‘READY TO RACE’ THE FINAL SEVEN ROUNDS OF SX IN UTAH

May 15, 2020

Following a recent announcement from Feld Entertainment, Inc., the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team is pleased to confirm that reigning 450SX Champion Cooper Webb is ‘READY TO RACE’ the final seven rounds of the 2020 AMA Supercross Championship at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Beginning on May 31 and running through June 21, the final seven made-for-tv races are scheduled to take place twice a week (Sunday and Wednesday) for four consecutive weeks and each race will be broadcast on NBC networks without fans in attendance. Webb, who has often expressed his desire to continue racing, currently sits third overall in the championship standings as he continues his quest to maintain the number one plate aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

Cooper Webb: “At KTM, we are always READY TO RACE! I know it was questionable as to whether or not we would get to finish the season but I feel as professional supercross racers it’s our job to be ready to race and we do our jobs whenever called upon. With that being said, it also gives us an opportunity to grow our sport, give people jobs back and give all the fans a chance to see us race on TV while we do everything possible to stay safe and continue practicing social distancing.”

Roger De Coster, Director of Motorsports, KTM GROUP: “We are so happy to finally have this plan in place. We started feeling pretty bored after being off for this long without racing and now there is a sensation of life and energy again. And, it is cool for Supercross to be one of the first professional sports back!”

NBC and NBCSN Television Schedule

Round 11 (250SX East)
Sunday, May 31 | 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm ET on NBCSN then 4:00 – 6:00 ET on NBC

According to Feld Entertainment’s release, the responsible return to racing will provide guidelines and protocols to competitors and essential staff that complies with all federal, state and local health guidance and mandates. Mitigation efforts include mandated prescreening, testing, temperature checks, face masks, increased sanitation efforts and social distancing to limit contact among individuals executing the events. The stadium will assist with the implementation and execution of the plan. Additionally, Supercross, in partnership with the Alpinestars Medical Unit, has a trained medical team of seven professionals to assist on-site.

NBC Sports will present the final seven, made-for-TV races across NBC, NBCSN & NBCSports.com. Races will also be available to domestic livestream subscribers via the NBC Sports Gold “Supercross Pass” and internationally via the Supercross Video Pass.
