Pulpmx: Does James Stewart’s victory at the Monster Cup mean anything or is Ryan Villopoto still a heavy favorite?
Jeff Emig: I do think it means a lot to James. I’m sure that it’s done wonders for his confidence. The reports that I hear are that he looks really, really good on the track now, that he seems really fired up. And I didn’t hear the same thing before the Monster Energy Cup. Is Villopoto still a favorite? Of course. I don’t think that he’s a heavy favorite. I think that [Eli] Tomac and [Ken] Roczen are really going to come into the class and do something. I think that there’s other riders, the [Justin] Barcias and whatnot, that are still going to better than they were this year. I think for James it was a great race for him. It’s got to do wonders for his confidence.
