Cooper Webb and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing have parted ways. Webb was with the factory team for five seasons. The mid-season split is effective immediately. Webb was injured in a crash at the Nashville Supercross race that took him out of championship contention for the remaining races of the season.
Webb had an option in his contract to opt out of the Pro Motocross season. Webb decided he wanted to race in the Pro Motocross series which KTM agreed to support. Webb crashed over the weekend during practice at Red Bud, sidelining him.
Webb posted the following message to his fans on social media: Forever grateful for the opportunity that Roger, Ian and the entire Red Bull Factory KTM Racing team gave me. It has been one hell of a ride and I’m proud of what we accomplished these past five seasons.
Together, we’ve decided to go our own ways following my practice crash last week, which will leave me out for the rest of summer. See you at the races soon
Webb’s future return to racing has yet to be disclosed.
