James Stewart Out for San Francisco SX

James Stewart ready to roll in 2010 - Anaheim 1
That right wrist is causing James problems.
San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart, who's currently running fifth in the championship points, will sit out tonight’s Supercross race in San Francisco. Stewart got banged up in Phoenix two weeks ago and has been dealing with the side effects ever since. After soldering through Anaheim 2, Stewart went back to the doctors for a second look on Thursday, January 28, and they discovered that he has a broken scaphoid in his right wrist. Surgery was performed successfully by Dr. Arthur Ting of Fremont, California.

“James is a true champion. The fact that he rode as competitively as he did making the podium at Anaheim 2 with a broken wrist (unknowingly) is testimony to that. He's anxious to heal and get back on the race track as soon as possible,” said Team Manager, Larry Brooks.

It is uncertain when Stewart will return to action. He and the team are taking it day-by-day with constant evaluation. With Chad Reed out due to a broken left hand, the title chase is wide open now that the biggest stars are on the sidelines.

James Stewart and the best driver of all we have.
errors and falls are part of the sport.
he takes more risks than all the other drivers which sometimes goes wrong.
but not the doubt that he and the best.
to recover fast because the sport without it not the same thing

since stewart stepped up to the supercross class in 2005 only three people have been crowned champion! those riders are the ones who sell out stadiums. If you have been a fan of supercross very long you will realize that the other riders are not as fast as stewart. in fact there are multiple times when stewart has lapped into the top five! You got to give credit where credit is due! James Stewart needs his speed to win. He is an excellent rider and people need to realize crashes happen taking risks is part of the sport.

More than anything ..... I am tired of hearing the phrase "the fastest man on the planet"!!!!! Let's face it.... any one of those guys out there riding factory plus programs can go crazy fast out of their minds. That's just a fact. Being able to control your speed with technical finesse and more importantly respecting other riders that have come just as far as you have...... is the BIG difference in a true champion. Without all of the other guys that make up the other 19 gates ..... you wouldn't even have a sport to compete in. RESPECT THEM and YOUR TEAM. Be consistent and stay on 2 wheels.... the notion that there's no one else on the track that matters other than YOU is ridiculous.

I'm curious to see how well Stewart keeps the rubber side down with Reed out of the picture.

Stewart needs to find a balance between speed and wrecklessness. He takes himself out to often.
