JAMES STEWART: THE FUTURE OF MX
This year will probably mark the end of Ricky Carmichael?s record as the most dominant amateur in the U.S. when Stewart wins his tenth Loretta Lynn?s title. Being mentioned in the same sentence with fellow Team Kawasaki riders R.C. and Jeff Ward could go to a lot of racers? heads. Come to think of it?it has, but as far as we can tell James Stewart is not one of those people. After talking with Jimmy at his new home in Lake Hamilton, FL it was clear to see that his head still fits in his helmet, and thankfully so, since he needed it at a crash in Gainesville a month ago. We asked him what happened, along with his influences, hobbies, and being called the Tiger Woods of MX.
DB: So what happened at Gainesville?
DB: What riders did you look up to when you were a kid??O.K., a little kid.
DB: How does it feel to be compared with the likes of Team Kawasaki?s R.C. and even Kawasaki?s legendary Jeff Ward?
DB: We hear you recently moved from Winter Haven, what gives?
DB: What do you like to do when you?re not racing?
DB: How have your parents and Kawasaki added to your racing?
DB: How do you feel about being called the Tiger Woods of MX?
