Team Rockstar Motul Suzuki working on setup and moving forward

Posted:

With two new riders in Cody Cooper (Pro Open) and Lawson Bopping (Pro Lites), Australian Team Rockstar Motul Suzuki Motocross and Supercross Team Manager Jay Foreman is working hard with both riders on set-up and moving forward with his new team.

"Our 2010 results in Pro Lites so far have been mixed: Setting the bike up for a new rider takes some time," Formeman said.

"We had three years working with Matt Moss where we knew exactly how he wanted the bike set up. We've had experience racing, and winning, with the injected 250, but we are working through getting the suspension set-up right for Lawson. These things will take some time to develop, but his speed is there which can be seen in his qualifying results. It also takes some time for a new rider to adapt to a new team.

"In the Pro Open class, Cody Cooper has returned from New Zealand to pilot the RM-Z450. Cody has plenty of international experience having competed in the AMA outdoors and achieving good results.

"As with Lawson, the exact same things apply to Cody: Cody tried to set the bike up "US style", but because the tracks in Australia are so different, we had to revise our set up. Now we are back on track and seeing really good improvement in results. Cody has shown great speed, but we need to work on him getting out in the first three off the start. The shorter race-format here is not helping our cause, but Cody has the speed to run up front.

"I am sure both riders will be winning races by the end of the season and hopefully carrying momentum through to Supercross," Foreman concluded.

Both Cooper and Bopping currently reside in 6th place in their respective championships.
