Cooper Webb has been cleared to race the full season of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship.
The Red Bull KTM rider suffered a concussion during round 15 of Monster Energy AMA Supercross a little less than a month ago and was originally slated to return to competition in six-to-eight weeks.
However, the 27-year-old has been given a clean bill of health and will appear at the opening round of motocross Saturday at Fox Raceway in Pala, Calif. He began riding last Friday, following a final round of scans and medical testing.
“After my crash in Nashville, I’ve been able to take some time off and get fully healthy, cleared and ready to go,” Webb said. “I’m looking forward to getting back behind the gate.”
This will be Webb’s first time racing motocross since 2021, as he didn’t compete last summer.
The two-time Supercross champion has yet to secure a 450SX Pro Motocross title, but will be looking to do so this summer. He only has one outdoor event victory to his credit.
“Wish we had a little more prep, but stoked to make round one after it didn’t seem possible a week ago,” Webb wrote on Instagram. “Let’s go racing.”
