Cooper Webb Earns Six Titles at the 2012 Winter Olympics
Wiggins, Miss. (Nov. 27, 2012) – For the 41st time, Gatorback Cycle Park in Gainesville, Fla. was host to the annual Winter Olympics of Motocross during the week of Thanksgiving. Star Racing/Yamaha/Rockstar Energy’s Cooper Webb contested the 250 A and 250 Pro Sport classes in both supercross and motocross, sweeping all four titles. He also raced the 450 A and 450 Pro Sport classes on his Yamaha YZ250F winning two championships in the 450 A classes and finishing on the podium in the 450 Pro Sport classes against more powerful machines.
“I had a good week, it’s tough competition in the A class and it feels good to have been a contender in each of the classes I raced,” said the 17-year old Webb. “I work really hard, and the goal is to win. I want to thank Bobby Regan (Star Racing/Yamaha/Rockstar Energy Team owner) and the entire team for building me an awesome 250, Yamaha, Rockstar Energy, my coach Gary Bailey, my mechanic, my trainer, and all of the sponsors who help our team get to the races,” added Webb.
Webb will make his professional debut at the start of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship May 18, at the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, Calif. Follow Cooper Webb on Facebook at facebook.com/cooperwebb175.YMCB, and on Twitter @minicoop175.
