Despite muted early expectations, Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb won the 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship and took his first 450 Class win in Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross. The Racer X Rider of the Year takes his well-deserved spot on Page One of our February issue.
Inside the February issue of Racer X magazine:
• Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb is the 2019 Racer X Rider of the Year.
• The legendary Paris Supercross may have lacked some star power, but that may not have been a bad thing.
• Racer X’s Trent Lopez hit the gym, pounded out laps, and entered the brutal Ironman GNCC, just to see if he could do it. (He could.)
• Steve Matthes and Kris Keefer entered the Dubya USA World Vet Motocross Championships at Glen Helen, then sat down for a chat about their weekend.
All these features and much more in the February issue.
FLIPPING THE SCRIPT
At the start of the 2019 season, Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb wasn’t even considered a title contender. Now he’s the Racer X Rider of the Year.
The fabled Paris Supercross didn’t quite draw the usual star power this year, but that may have turned out to be a positive development.
BABE IN THE WOODS
Racer X’s own Trent Lopez lost 60 pounds through sheer dedication and determination. His final test? The unforgiving Ironman GNCC.
