Webb wins qualifying moto in Japan
Cooper Webb has won the qualifying moto in Sugo, Japan from fellow American Trey Canard.
Canard, who was fastest in qualifying, ( only six tenths of a second separated, Canard, Webb and Febvre) stayed with Webb for most of the race before dropping back in the last two laps. Romain Febvre suffered a bad start and by the time he got to third the Americans were long gone. The world champ will be hoping for better starts on Sunday!
Tim Gajser had to ride his MX2 machine in the end instead of the 450 and won his qualifying heat but was 1.3 seconds behind Jeremy Martin in timed practice. Martin also won his qualifying heat and it sets up a good duel between the world and US national champ in the main races tomorrow…if Gajser can find a bit more pace!
