THE WEEKLY FEED: JAMES STEWART ROMPS IN 2014

EXPOSURE: JAMES STEWART 2014

James Stewart signed with Yoshimura Suzuki in 2012 and was immediately dominant in the outdoor Nationals. A big crash at Colorado, after four straight wins ended up in a broken wrist and a premature end to the season. In 2014 James won the San Diego Supercross, his first main event win of the season and he ended up winning five more times overtaking Ricky Carmichael for second place in all time wins. James was suspended for failing an anti-doping test and missed the entire 2015 season. His career pretty much fizzled and he faded away with very little fanfare considering he was one of the greatest motocross athletes in the history of the sport.

Ryan Sipes took an impressive win at the LL Raceway Sprint Enduro in Fairmount, Pennsylvania, coming from behind in the final test to edge out Tely Racing’s Steward Baylor and Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Josh Strang for the overall victory in what turned out to be a real cliffhanger of a race.

GEAR BAG

Mobius Braces X8 Wrist Brace 

The Mobius  X8 Wrist Brace uses the same Continuous Cable Routing System (CCRS) seen in the X8 Knee Brace. This brace has been specifically designed to progressively resist hyper extension as well as excessive lateral and medial bending of the wrist. Patent pending CCRS technology provides maximum support across the wrist joint without hindering mobility while riding. When force is applied to the wrist, the CCRS becomes progressively tighter and pulls the Metacarpal Shell, Tendon Back Plate, and Ulna Shell together as to grip the rider’s wrist and prevent the brace from moving. A simple adjustment screw achieves desired support by limiting the degree of extension from 0-70 degrees. The X8 Wrist Brace delivers a unique palm-free design which provides an unrestricted grip and allows riders to achieve their full potential without compromising protection. Price: $199.95

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

Back in 2008 I had a chance to race a Paul Whibley Replica Suzuki at the OMA nationals held in Arkansas. I loved the track, the people and Gusse put on his typically tough race. The bike was a beast- full moto with good RG3 suspension. I also got a chance to race Shane Nalley’s personal bike and he de-tuned the engine a bit and made it more manageable and fun.
