Red Bull KTM star Cooper Webb has agreed on a deal that will take him to the French capital in November for the 2022 Paris Supercross.
The two-time AMA Supercross champion will use the famous event to launch his bid to regain the AMA 450SX title he last won in 2021.
For his third title push, Webb returns to Aldon Baker, the trainer who was at his side during his 2019 and 2021 winning seasons. And for this campaign, the team will have Webb mounted on a fully-developed works 450 SX-F.
The North Carolinian is eager to put a disappointing 2022 season behind him and rebuild his winning package – a mix of technical finesse, physical endurance and racing mastery, topped with an immense fighting spirit.
Much like winning the AMA 450SX title, winning in Paris will be no easy task, as the current champion, Eli Tomac, will also be chasing the “King of Paris” title, and Hunter and Jett Lawrence will share the same goal.
“We are glad to welcome back Cooper to our event, which he has raced twice as a 250 racer,” said Paris SX sports director Xavier Audouard.
“One can expect to see him back to his true level after re-launching his program, and we anticipate great battles between him and the other stars behind the gate.
“Being able to present US champions to our event is rare and always a treat. Cooper and Eli are great rivals; they have won the last four world and US titles. And with Eli and Jett, we have two of the three current champs lined up for this 39th edition, which promises to be an epic one!
“Our event gives these top factory riders a unique chance to get some gate drops and face proper race conditions, on a US-style track, in the middle of the off-season while chasing the prestigious King of Paris title.
“We are glad that themselves and their teams take that opportunity and will do our best to honour their commitment.”
