He must have complete confidence in that suspension. Really gutsy and probably unnecessary move.

It worked. Any photogs get a shot of that leap?

Has there ever been a rider with so many pics and videos that leave all of us talking about it for days with our jaw dropped? I don't think so. James never ceases to amaze me.

It was probably an unnecessary risk. Cool as shit to see but come on. He would of caught him in the next corner or 2. Just scary when he does shit like that because I don't want to see him out the rest of the season but it's also what makes him who he is by doing shit like that.

There you go again, second guessing the guy when you weren't the one racing. James has been making passes like that probably most of his life and I've seen him launch a jump like that before when he was out front. Jumping is part of racing and he likes to jump. Didn't seem risky to me, considering what I've seen from him in the past and his skill level.

Wasnt risky? Are you kidding? He is just coming of a serious knee injury! He is racing for a title, not a trophy on the podium. Of course everyone likes to see kamikaze riding - its great to watch! But the goal is the title at the end of the summer,, even James said he didnt really think about it and just hucked it - not really knowing how it was gonna work. He already knows he has the speed on the ground to beat these guys,, he doesnt need to jack up his knee again. Its these kinda decisions that are gonna bit him on the arse if he doesnt watch it. That rut last summer showed him he IS mortal,,,, being fast is great - but this championship stuff is a thinking mans game.

But you are gonna go on to defend no matter what, so flame the hell outta me.

But you talk to him through message boards, and he knows you by name, and he's your black brethren, and I'm sure you guys play swords when you pee in the same toilet.

Let other people have their opinions. You're not James keeper, and he didn't say shit bad about James.

Get off his sack dude.

Like I said before I've seen James launch jumps like that before and if he felt comfortable enough to do it then I trust his judgement, why can't you??? He was smart enough to know that he needed to sit out the SX season so I'm sure that he is smart enough to know what his body is telling him and what he can and can't do on the track.

RC went out and rode is ass off after being out with a knee injury and no one said shit.

Yes, because James' mind has never made him attempt things he couldn't pull off before... never.

P - if that was the case, he wouldn't have spent his first two years on the ground ALL the time.

The kid rides with heart, and we ALL know that. But he takes unneccesary risks on occasion - this is nothing new.

He doesn't need you defending him at every turn.

If you want to win you have to take risk. RC did it, Bailey did it, every champion is going to take a risk at times, but that jump didn't seem to risky to me considering what I've seen James do in the past. It didn't have a steep face on the second jump and as was seen in the vid he rode it out with no problem.

Now, like you said, other people should be able to have their own opinion and so should I.

Yes, but you come on here acting like James' own personal trainer & best buddy in the world.

You also, act as if your opinion is the ONLY opinion that matters and YOU have the final say on what James can/can't, should/shouldn't, will/won't do. You give absolutely NO credibility to ANYONE else regarding James.

That's the part you can't see, or refuse to see, or don't want to see, or just omit from your little reality you live in where James reads your message board letters to him.

I was simply pointing out you said James listens to his body and wouldn't take unneccesary risks based on what his body is telling him. I was just showing you that you're wrong.

now please - STFU. You're not James' gaurdian, and your internet watchdog antics regarding him, won't make him kiss you any sooner.

Ohhhh, so now I have to shut up because you don't like my opinion??? Get da fuck outta here.

Look, you have your opionion and I have mine, so just leave it at that. I'm not going to muddy up the board today with your personal BS. Send me a personal message if you have such a problem with me. Personally, I don't really give a fuck what you think of me, but if you just want to get it off your chest feel free.

BTW, in terms fo credibility, don't even try to question my credibility.................

I'm saying you should give other peoples opinions a little merit, instead of discrediting them immediately as 'completely off base' when it comes to ANYTHING having to do with James.
How you take that as "i should shut up because you dont like my opinion" I have no idea.

Go back to 4th grade and try to grasp "reading comprehension". I'm saying your opinion isn't the be-all end-all regarding James (which is how you make it seem)

And clearly I didn't question your credibility - I said again - you should give some credibility to other peoples opinions sometimes.

Look how you're taking things I say, and pretending I said COMPLETELY DIFFERENT things - typical P.
Typical "everybody picks on me" mentality.

Your dream world is a far cry from reality. Too bad James doesn't have any idea who you are... but trust me, if he did - he still wouldn't make out with you.

You know, it was classic Stewart. One of these days he may not be known as the guy with the most wins and the most titles, but he'll be known as the guy who would do whatever it took to win, every time out, no matter what.

He's already known as the guy who's a ton of fun to watch ride!

When he keeps it on two wheel's he's blazing fast. When RC was riding, RC had faster laps, but James made his laps LOOK faster.

He's fun to watch, and he's cemented in this sports memory for that, even if he never won another thing (which he will)

Other's can have their opionions(as long as it doesn't go against how great James is, otherwise they're wrong and need to be told so). I didn't say that they shouldn't have their own opinions - I just let them know their opinions were stupid and wrong and proved it by giving MY opinion which is great, because I am James best buddy.

Like I said, if you have a problem with me contact me in a private message and stop being such an ass. Because I really hate when people see in public how delusional I am.

Your "picks on me" comment. Silly. I can handle anyone on this board (unless they badmouth James) and I've given the assholes here plenty of chances to talk shit in person and none ever have. I'm sure like like the rest.

I have to get back to running the James' fanclub - see you later boi's!

Yes, because adding a few snippets of text is really tough.

If you think that's hard, I'd hate to know what kind of 'work' you do for a living...

I already clarified the whole 'having an opinion' thing, and yet you continue to say the wrong thing. Typical "I'm wrong but am too stupid to admit it" attitude.
