Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart has missed the last two rounds of Monster Energy Supercross after briefly being knocked unconscious at the season opener. He and the team have proceeded with caution on his return, electing not to come back until he is 100 percent ready.
After being cleared by Asterisk Mobile Medical Center personnel prior to Round 2 at San Diego, Stewart elected not to race after participating in two practice sessions.
Although he practiced last week, Stewart didn’t feel 100 percent and elected to sit out Round 3 at Anaheim. Earlier this week, the team released a video with Stewart providing an update on his return.
“It’s getting better every week,” he said in the video. “Obviously Anaheim 1 was a tough week and I tried racing last weekend and just wasn’t ready. It just sucks, because normally, any injury I’ve ever had, obviously outside of a concussion, if it’s a broken hand or whatnot, you know what hurts. With a concussion it’s different.”
Stewart went on to say he hopes to race this weekend at Oakland. Check out the entire interview below.
