Hilde is holding down the fort at MotoUSA’s Southern Oregon HQ. With world-class dirt bike and ATV trails just minutes away, the hardest part is getting him to focus on the keyboard. Two wheels or four, it doesn’t matter to our Off-Road Editor so long as it goes like hell in the dirt.

James Stewart and JGRMX went their separate ways immediately following the Las Vegas Supercross finale. It was just a matter of time before the news became public, but Stewart wasted no time confirming the other half of the rumor that he would be riding yellow. Stewart signed with Yoshimura Suzuki and will contest the outdoor Nationals for the factory squad. He will join existing Suzuki rider Brett Metcalfe. Stewart has already been testing his new 2012 Suzuki RM-Z450. Check out the photos below.
