Team Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart came to Washougal looking to better his first moto 10th place finish from Spring Creek. James pulled out of the second moto last week due to severe blistering to his hands. James recently just had his first child and is taking it race by race to rebuild his stamina and speed from an earlier injury.Photo by Preston Jordan

Stewart qualified 5th fastest and looked very comfortable doing it. James was one of only a few riders skimming the deep whoop section (at a very fast pace) that Washougal has before the finish line. If you have never seen the number 7 go through whoops, do yourself a favor and watch this guy hit a set and prepare to be amazed.Photo by Preston Jordan

Moto one James was in a fierce battle with Dean Wilson and Weston Peick for sixth and seventh for over half the race. Visibly tired, Stewart went back a little and finished 9th (one spot better than his first moto performance from Millville).Photo by Preston Jordan

In the second moto James was seen pulling off of the track early on. No word on what the culprit was this time in Washougal, but we hear that blisters might be what is eating at him once again. We will see Stewart back in Unadilla in two weeks and hopefully the time off from the schedule will allow his hands to heal.Photo by Preston Jordan
