Team San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart, the reigning 2009 AMA/FIM Supercross Champion, will not be racing in San Diego this weekend. Last week on Friday, January 29th, an evaluation of an MRI showed Stewart had a broken scaphoid bone in his right hand. He underwent immediate surgery, that day, to have it repaired and be on the road to recovery right away. James returned to his home state of Florida for post-surgery therapy immediately following the procedure.

Yamaha’s radical new 2010 YZ450F with the rear-slanted and repositioned engine is acquitting itself quite nicely in the opening rounds of Supercross.

After setting the fastest time on the YZ450F in practice, Stewart suffered a bad crash during his heat race and left trackside in some pain. It was questionable whether Stewart would return.
In a spectacular night of racing, James Stewart won the opening round of the 2010 AMA Supercross series in Anaheim, Calif. on Saturday, Jan. 9 aboard Yamaha’s all-new YZ450F.
