21 – year old Cooper Webb hails from Morehead City, NC where he grew up riding and surfing. Cooper’s dad, Robert raced motocross during the seventies before pursuing a career in professional surfing. When Cooper was four Robert felt the urge to buy another dirt bike and ride for fun. By this time Robert and Trent, Cooper’s mother owned a surf shop that happened to have a practice track close by. Every time Robert would ride Cooper begged to be ridden around the track. It wasn’t long before Cooper was asking for a motorcycle. Robert was concerned that Cooper might be too young, but Cooper was persistent. One day Robert told Cooper who had not yet removed the training wheels from his bicycle that if he learned to ride the bicycle without training wheels he would get a motorcycle. The next day while at work Trent called Robert and said he would not believe his eyes when he came home. Robert arrived home to Cooper riding his bicycle over a small ramp and turning figure eights, without training wheels. Robert rewarded Cooper with a brand-new Yamaha PW50, the year was 2000.
