Round fifteen of the Monster Energy Supercross took place at the Atlanta Motor Speedway tonight in Georgia, with Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb grabbing a 450SX main event win.
Speaking about those last few laps after Ken Roczen made a mistake in the main event, Webb explained what gave him that extra push towards the end.
“It kind of changed the dynamic, I had a good lead and I could see when I was entering the whoops, and he (Roczen) was exiting them and I saw a few laps, you know, we were all struggling on they were extremely tough to get through all day and especially in that main event.
“I think we were all kind of searching for lines and what to do and what not to do so I can kind of see that and we were just trying to click my laps, I was making some mistakes early on, really just kind of overriding and trying too hard and kind of lost some ground.
“I was kind of ready to pounce so obviously when I saw kenny went down it was, I felt like I had a shot to win the race and just really put my head down and that’s when I just kind of figured out the whoops, and was able to get through them really good there at the end and obviously, a late race charge and it was definitely a tough race, I mean the track was was really gnarly and, yeah, stoked on it, to be honest.”
