Breakdown: The Young and the Reckless Webb vs Savatgy! What Happened! (video)

Jason Thomas on how the Savatgy, Webb incident unfolded and what it means moving forward.

Cooper Webb and Joey Savatgy had a bit of a run-in on the first lap of Washougal’s second moto. Stuff like this happens in motocross. This was a bit more personal, though, and had been building for some time. Let’s take a look at how it all unfolded and what it means moving forward.

On the first lap of a moto, there are generally two different trains of thought. For some, they are trying to navigate a freshly watered, slippery track and not make a huge mistake. They don’t make any overly aggressive moves and are simply trying to maintain their spot until the track works in and the chaos slows a bit. After a lap or two, they up their aggression and try to make a charge forward.

While they may not have made much progress on that opening lap or two, they also didn’t toss away a good start or put themselves at the back of the pack with an early crash.
