For the second-consecutive round, Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart has opted out due to recovering from an unspecified illness.

The two-time SX Champion of Florida was forced to also miss Washougal Motocross two weeks ago. Though he had last weekend’s break from the series to further recover, his team reports he is not 100-percent.

Stewart will now miss this Saturday’s Undadilla National in New Berlin, N.Y., round 10 of 12, as he continues to recover.

“We’re just not ready for Unadilla,” said Yoshimura Suzuki Team Manager Mike Webb. “It’s been a tough road lately and James hasn’t felt well enough to put in the time on the bike that’s necessary to compete safely.

“He’s only now getting back into his normal training regimen on the Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450. Obviously, this isn’t how we’d hoped to finish the 2014 season, especially after starting strong by sweeping the High Point National. But right now, we’re trying to support James so he can be ready for Indiana.”

Yoshimura Suzuki’s next race will be in Indiana next Saturday, Aug. 16, for the Indiana National in Crawfordsville.

After nine of 12 rounds, Stewart is fifth in points, 181 behind the series leader, Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen.
