Keep up with Cooper Webb on Instagram.

Two weeks before Anaheim I, plans had changed for Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha’s Cooper Webb. The 2015 Monster Energy AMA Supercross West Coast champion had made plans to try his luck on the East Coast for 2016, but when his teammate Jeremy Martin had injured himself early in December, it was back to the West Coast. For some, the pressure of the number one plate can be a little much, but for the Yamaha rider, he loves it, and it keeps him motivated during the week. And it was during the week when we spotted Webb hard at work at the private Yamaha test track in Corona, California. After his motos were complete, we sat down with the West Coast championship defender.
