James Stewart Supercross Video BlogSince winning his second AMA Supercross title in 2009, James Stewart has struggled with injury.The main problem arrived due to an broken right wrist in 2010 AMA SX, which caused him to miss loads of races, and plagued him with future issues.
With up and down results, Stewart departed with Joe Gibbs Racing at the the end of 2012 SX, and joined the Yoshimura Suzuki team for 2013.Stewart once again dealt with injury, this time his right knee, throughout 2013 SX, and he didn’t race in the final three rounds.But Stewart has been training heavily aboard the Suzuki RM-Z 450 for the upcoming 2014 AMA Supercross season, which begins January 4 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.Attached above is Stewart’s latest video blog, which discusses the Floridian’s recent training sessions.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at email@example.com and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
