Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing rider Cooper Webb has confirmed that he fractured his tibia in a crash during 450 Main Event One at the 2018 Minneapolis Supercross. Webb and a number of other riders came together as they went through the first lane of obstacles on the opening lap and Webb faired the worst of all, as his lower leg was landed on by another rider. Webb was able to get off of the track with the assistance of the Alpinestars Mobile Medical staff and was taken out of the stadium on the medical cart.
In a post on Instagram Sunday morning, Webb stated that early scans showed the fracture to his tibia but he will visit an orthopedist on Monday morning to see the full extent of the damage.
UPDATE APRIL 23RD 11:30 AM | Over the weekend Webb posted an injury update on Instagram. Webb said that there is one fracture of his tibia and two fractures of his fibula, which required a surgery to repair the damage. With this, it’s unclear when Webb will be able to return to action and it’s unlikely that he will make the start of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in May.
Little update for you guys. Lastnight in Minneapolis I was involved with some carnage in the rhythm section right off the start and I ended up getting landed on in the 1st main event of the night. I ended up with a fractured tibia as of now. Have an appointment Monday with an ortho to see the final word. Extremely bummed to say the least… but I do know it’s hard to beat someone who won’t give up. I’ll be back soon #GodsPlan Thank you to all my sponsors and people in my corner for the uplifting. @yamahamotorusa @monsterenergy @thormxofficial @bell_powersports @ride100percent @alpinestars @toyotaescondido @swanie387 @seth_rarick @teamdrg @jakevanada @trentwebb175 #hutch
