Cooper gets team USA MX2 MXoN spot?

According to Steve Matthes over at Pulp MX, Justin Cooper has now got the MX2 spot for team USA at Red Bud MXoN!

Cooper had been having a tough season outdoors after a badly broken foot in just before supercross started but he has been winning races in the last two outdoor rounds and that appears to be enough for the Star Racing Yamaha rider to inch ahead of previous favourite, teammateChristian Craig, who had been tipped to drop back down to a 250 for the event after a strong supercross and motocross season.

With the MX2 class being key in the mixed races, Justin Cooper’s starts could be a huge plus for the USA and he probably just needs one good result given the sensational pace of Tomac and Sexton on their 450 machines in US Nationals.

The Americans are going to be very tough to beat in September.
