Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb claims to have made a ‘huge’ step in setup direction at the third Indianapolis Monster Energy Supercross round which propelled him to second on the main event podium.
Webb was in a battle with eventual winner Ken Roczen but just lost out on the last lap.
“It was a great day, a step in the right direction. I had good qualifying times and just came up short on the Main Event,” said Webb.
“It was a hard charge, so close but so far. Ken rode great and adjusted to the race as it went. I felt like I charged hard at the end and got close, but just not enough.
“I missed the rhythm with two to go and that kind of killed it for me but he rode a great race and beat me straight up, so we will go this week and try to get better.
“We made a huge step today with bike setup and comfort, so I feel like I am right there. It’s a long series so we will keep fighting every weekend and get back to that top spot soon.”
