It is obvious to anyone who has eyes that the change to KTM for Webb, plus the change to Aldon Baker’s training program has had a profound impact on him. KTM is without a doubt one of the-if not THE-top racing teams in the world. Aldon Baker‘s training program is without a doubt the top MX training program in the world. Both of these factors have contributed to bringing out the rider we saw in the 250s to the 450 class.

Cooper said something on the podium last night that I thought was very interesting. He said, “I can’t believe it”, with regards to winning races back to back. I think in very short order he’s going to start believing it, and then start KNOWING that’s EXACTLY where he should be-fighting for wins every week the way he used to. Then watch out.

I would say that’s what all the top-tier riders have in common – the mental strength of knowing that they should be a top-tier guy fighting for wins with the other top-tier guys. Sometimes it can make them come off as arrogant, and that can be offputting to some. But honestly you have to have a touch of arrogance to do the things these guys do on those machines out there, especially at the very top level.

It looks to me like the old Cooper everyone was waiting for has arrived. The gunfighter we all saw before appears to be back now. It’s about time.

In my entire life of being a fan of moto, Webb is the only rider I have ever actually disliked.

I've told people they're nuts for thinking Webb would ever be a 450 title contender, and I never understood the people who were "just waiting" for him to start winning. Well, apparently I was wrong. And it sucks laughing

You have to admit, he brings some personality to the sport. On the plus side, his podium interviews aren’t filled with sponsor vomit.

I fucking hate him, truth be told I thought his A2 wins were a fluke...damn it I was also wrong lol. I’m a huge Kenny fan so I was absolutely heart broken. I was cheering because I thought for sure Webb fucked himself over until I looked at timing and saw Webb at the top. I may not like the dude, but i respect the hell out of his riding this season

Who was his trainer when he won both an outdoor and Lites SX Championship?

I knew that, was just making a point to people who all of a sudden think Aldon has done something special, when in reality, Decoster should get credit for hiring him.

Aldon helped him get back into the right mindset and lose weight. KTM put him on a bike he apparently really likes. Seems pretty straightforward.

The one thing that cooper has that sets him apart from 90% of the field is he is he thrives under pressure.. he’s clutch as hell.

What is to not like about Webb? If we're talking about rider's personalities, there's so many other riders I'd put in front of Webb in the unpopularity contest.

I find myself having to look past like 90% of the rider's personalities and just respect their game and enjoy the races. Webb is actually one of the few I haven't heard anything that made me think bad of him yet.

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.

That was definitely a quality ride. So many times I thought he was going to over ride the track trying to catch Ken and throw it away, but he really kept his cool and pulled it out. Hard not to be impressed.
