  • Stewart in a class of his own at Anaheim II

    12 February 2011 by Paul Harris

    Anybody ever doubt James Stewart’s ability? The one guy to give Ricky Carmichael a hard time never really had a straight run without injury to show what he’s capable of, Chad Reed and Ryan Dungey popping along to give Stewart plenty to think about, with a charged Ryan Villopoto having plenty for Lil’ James to cope with so far this season.

  • Stewart fights back

    12 February 2011 by Paul Harris

    Rightly or wrongly, James Stewart has taken an outrageous amount of flak in his career for being inconsistent and crash-happy, but the Floridian gave notice that those days are over on Saturday with maybe the smartest win of his career thus far. Last weekend’s opener at Anaheim saw the 25-year-old take third overall as the quickest man on the track, as he so often has been in the past - this...

Kawasaki’s factory star was coming back from an enforced eight month layoff following a terrible crash last April and showed that the plates and pins in the badly-broken...
