James Stewart’s return to full flight racing was a mixed affair, he obviously rode extremely well in moto one and fought hard with both Ryan Dungey and Clement Desalle but moto two was a different story as James failed to finish.
“I knew I wasn’t going to be 100-percent coming in here, but I can’t take anything away from those guys,” he said. “They were riding really good and I didn’t have anything for them. I’m confident in myself and my team that things will only improve from here” said Stewart.
“This was a learning experience for our team,” said San Manuel Team Manager Larry Brooks. “Though many of us have years of motocross racing experience, as a team, we have not raced motocross in a long time. We had some challenges but we learned a lot today and will do what it takes to improve before Southwick.”
With the news of Dungey, Andrew Short and Trey Canard now booking their flights to Denver as the US team the weekend certainly didn’t go quite to plan for the once “fastest man on the planet.”
