Last weekend during Anaheim 1 Supercross – the opening round of the 2016 SX season – James Stewart collided with the reigning SX Champ, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey.

The Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 pilot Stewart hit the Anaheim dirt hard, and was taken off the track by medical staff. He was questionable for this Saturday’s round 2 at San Diego SX, and was put through a series of tests. He also began some light training to get back into shape quickly.

On Friday, Stewart underwent “neurocognitive and concussion management testing,” and the results were positive. Asterisk Mobile Medical Center personnel has now cleared Stewart to compete at PETCO Park for San Diego Supercross.

“James said he started feeling much better in the last couple of days since his Anaheim fall,” said Yoshimura Suzuki team manager Mike Webb. “He was eager to get back in action and was happy he cleared all the tests and got the OK to race tomorrow.

“The team has been taking a cautious approach and we’ve made it clear to James that we only want him to come back if he’s fully healthy and ready. It’s his decision to race and we’re putting our trust in James’ decision and the testing procedure the series has in place to protect the riders.”
