VIDEO: James Stewart on Anaheim 2 Supercross

Yoshimura Suzuki Factory team rider James Stewart talks about Anaheim 2 Supercross and why he wasn't racing.

Check out what Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing's James Stewart has to say at the 2016 AMA/FIM Supercross event in Anaheim, CA on January 23rd, 2016.

PRESS RELEASE from Jan. 22, 2016:

Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing rider James Stewart will miss this Saturday’s Anaheim II Supercross. Stewart rode late this week, but still is not feeling 100 percent fit to race. He is slated to return to action for the following round in Oakland, California, on January 30th.

Stewart was briefly knocked unconscious in the season opener at Anaheim I on Jan. 9, while running near the front early in the main event. He ran in practice in San Diego this past weekend before electing to not race.

“James rode yesterday and today and felt he still wasn’t back to where he wants to be to race,” said Mike Webb, Yoshimura Suzuki team manager. “The team is happy that James is taking a cautious approach to his return and we’re encouraged by his progress. We want him to feel fully prepared before he gets back into a racing situation and with the improvements he’s making he feels confident he’ll able to race in Oakland.”

Stewart’s teammate Blake Baggett has been back on the practice track and is getting back to fitness quickly. He was injured in a pre-season testing fall and is also slated to be back in action at Oakland.

“We’re looking forward to having both James and Blake back for Oakland and having the team back to full strength,” Webb concluded.
