I personally am still on the Webb train. I think he’s gonna be fired up, maybe a little behind, but fired up for redemption. Though I expect him to behind the likes of Tomac, The Leopard Seal, and Roczen; I’m hoping for consistent top 5’s while battling with The Tickler, and the Captain.

Does he have a Sophmore Slump (even more so than this year) or does he step up his game pissed this year sucked?

I think he will improve and be in the 2nd tier of riders. I can see Coop battling for top 5-10 with an occasional podium very similar to riders like Dean Wilson, Justin Bogle, Blake Baggett, Cole Seely and 1 or 2 others.

I would guess that Musquin, Anderson, Tomac and (hopefully) Roczen will again be at a different level than the other guys.

It's not make or break for him yet, but he needs to come out swinging and get some podiums and a win to stay at the pay scale he's at currently.

I think Barcia experience will help him calm down the hype and the mistakes of a rookie help would Guide a young racer to not take the hype for granted personally. Barcia gonna tell him to send it if anything. Keep calm and rail that shit with confidence.

If Coop feels comfortable on his bike, I don't see any reason he can't be a contender. He has a kind of intelligence on the track that I haven't seen in a long time. He seems to really understand how to move across the track and move around people.

I think 1 good finish for him will get him over the slump. It's gotta be a dinger to the 'ole ego seeing where Marvin is at right now versus where he is at. He definitely has it in him to run with those guys, kid just needs some confidence and to feel he belongs up front with those guys.

we have not seen the same Webb that tracked down herlings from a terrible start in some time but don't think we've seen the last Considering he's still in his early 20's still has a bit of time to get there

I still truly believe Webb got crushed by the MXDN of '16. After that race he hasn't been the same. He had a podium in SX but then got hurt. Whether the '18 is why better or not he thinks it is. No one is really talking about Webb, unlike last year where he was hyped. He comes in this year with his chip on his shoulder with ALL the light on Roczen, Eli and Musquin. Im looking for big things from Webb and I truly think he's gonna live up to his potential in '18.

Whilst i don't think the des nations is the reason why he struggled last year, i agree with you. I think he is going to live up to his potential in 2018.

I think if the old hungry Cooper is back he will be a contender no question. He has the total package to be a legend.

I like JGR and respect them as team, but the only plus I would see for Cooper going there is the NC commonality. I would think the Factory KTM would be a better choice career wise if he leaves the blu cru....

I agree that he will end up at JGR but I really feel like he would do well on the KTM, a bike that rewards those who can ride it aggressively. Regardless I expect some podiums out of him this year on the YZ.

Doubtful. Webb, whether he admits it or not...probably has a ton of pressure on him to ride up to his hype, and he has yet to do that on the 450. If the top-tier of riders fully capable of winning an event were not so deep this year, he might have a chance...but I just don't see "champion" in the guy, and unfortunately...the bike may not be championship caliber either.

I think he'll podium a few times, but no overalls.

If he gels with the new bike and gets back that confidence, grit and determination he had back in 250s then he could definitely be a threat to win.

Is there any rider that you'd say wouldn't do well on a KTM at this point? Seems like everyone's answer is that a rider needs to get on a KTM to win.

Webb's still young, I bet he'll have a better year this year and Continue to grow and improve. While he did beat Marvin in the 250 class, Marvin is/was already a world champion and older/has more experience. If I had to make a guess, I'd guess we really see him coming to life mid season, assuming he can stay off the ground, and be a podium contender come nationals.
