Cooper Webb to miss Atlanta Monster Energy Supercross
Cooper Webb has confirmed that he will miss the next round of the Monster Energy Supercross in Atlanta this weekend after injuring his shoulder last week in a qualifying heat.

The Monster Energy/Yamalube/Chaparral/Yamaha Financial Services/Yamaha Factory Racing Team rider has confirmed that there is no break but deep bruising will keep him off the bike for the week.

Providing his account of what happened last weekend in Minneapolis, Cooper said, ‰ÛÏI felt great in qualifying, and then, I pulled the holeshot in the heat. I was leaned over in the turn heading into the first rhythm section when I spun the rear wheel. I wasn‰Ûªt able to get through that section the way I wanted to, and unfortunately, another rider‰Ûªs rear wheel basically landed on the left side of my handlebars, and I went down.

‰ÛÏI flew to California, and I‰Ûªve been working with Dr. G (Dr. Rey Gubernick) this week. I had an MRI today [Tuesday], and it showed deep bruising. We were concerned that there was a fracture to the scapula [shoulder blade], so it was great news that the MRI revealed just a bruise. The plan right now is to work with Dr. G all week, and then, get back on my bike as soon as possible and see how I feel.

"I‰Ûªm really disappointed that I can‰Ûªt be in Atlanta this weekend for the big MotoFest. It‰Ûªs the closest Supercross event to my home in North Carolina, and I was looking forward to seeing my family and friends, and of course, meet all the awesome fans in Atlanta. And, I was really looking forward to getting a great result at the final Supercross in the Georgia Dome. I‰Ûªm working hard this week to rehab from the injury and return to racing as soon as possible.‰Û
