Widely recognized for his grit and determination to win, Webb has overcome his share of adversity since earning his first 450SX title in 2019.
As the 2020 runner-up in Supercross, Webb missed most of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship due to a back injury and he even had a challenging start to 2021 with a ninth-place finish at the opening round.
However, in true champion‰Ûªs form Webb spent the early part of the season chipping away at the points deficit, as he prepared for a strong comeback in the second half of the series. The 25-year-old from North Carolina entered the final round with a comfortable 22-point advantage in the standings, but that didn‰Ûªt slow the KTM ace when it came time for the gate to drop at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
Webb delivered his eighth victory of the season with a masterful performance; the KTM racer concluded the 2021 series with his 13th podium from 17 races to secure the AMA Supercross 450SX class title, an FIM World Championship. Marvin Musquin furthered a remarkable night for the team as he delivered a strong runner-up performance to give Red Bull KTM Factory Racing back-to-back 1-2 podium sweeps in the final two races.
‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been a heck of a year with everything in the world going on, but we dug deep this year and stayed the course," Webb said. "It‰Ûªs been an incredible journey, a hard-fought season with a lot of hard races but this is all worth it right here. Being a two-time champion is incredible and to get the win tonight is the cherry on top. I‰Ûªm speechless, this is incredible.‰Û
