Bubba Scrub Slow Motion Video
Two-time 450 Supercross Champion James “Bubba” Stewart is one of the most animated track riders to date. Since racing at the age of 12 through going pro at 16-years old in 2002 to his current seasons aboard the Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450, Stewart has been associated with much movement on the bike.
Shortly after he went pro, JS7 began a technique that allowed him to remain extremely low on jumps. Stewart practically crashes his motorcycle as it goes sideways on the face of jumps, creating an extremely low center of gravity. The sideways bikes seems to hover just above the dirt before Stewart stands it up and gets back to wide-open throttle.
The technique became known as the “Bubba Scrub,” and nowadays almost every rider emulates the move. The Bubba Scrub not only lowers lap times – it also looks amazing.
Red Bull recently released the first installment of the Bubba Scrub “Super Slo-Moto.” Speaking of the video, Red Bull says “we enlisted the help of the sport’s most influential rider of the modern era to break down the Bubba Scrub at his home track in Haines City, Fla., all for the eager lens of a high-speed camera to capture it all. So study up on your scrubs, and remember, yours probably won’t look like this at first.”
As for Stewart, who was suspended from 2015 Supercross and Motocross championships due to a controversial anti-doping violation, the Floridian returns this fall with the Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing team for the Red Bull Straight Rhythm, an event he won in the past.
Stewart will then compete in the 2016 Monster Energy Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross championships aboard the RM-Z450.
