Burnt up some time on YouTube last night. Came across some scratchy copy of the '03 Budds 125 race where #259 Stewart looked like a man among boys in that second moto; damn!

Besides the riding clinic, the names on gate, how shitty non-HD TV was, etc. does any one else here think David Bailey needs to come back to broadcasting? He was the color guy but sounded like he owned the broadcast. So much natural passion & excitement. Get this man back behind the mic!

Found a video on YouTube, made a topic about it, and didn't even include the link.

I was there! Was my first time at Budds.
Stewart was amazing. What I remember distinctly obviously was his speed on the 125 but also seeing the lines he was taking through some of the off camber turns.

The track is so bad going that direction.

But damn Stewart was on another level entirely. Like A class vs beginners.

I thought this was the moto of the scrub heard round the world

I was there. A special moto memory to be able to witness that.

To add to the greatness of this, remember this was his first National of the season. He missed the first 4 rounds after demolishing himself in that nasty crash at the Vegas SX finale only 1 month prior.

2003 was special. The amazing thing was how his momentum carried over into '04, when 95% of the other riders were on 250Fs. Stew stuck with the 125 and nearly had a perfect season, winning 23 out of 24 motos. The only one he lost was due to a first turn pileup at RedBud.

Undeniably the most exciting, innovative and talented rider to ever race a motocross bike.
