Stewart losing no 7!

7/12/2016 10:34pm
I read an interesting report today that if Stewart doesnt reach 25 points for the year, he can lose his permanant no 7, Now this would be huge considering his gear company and marketing and clothing opportunities.
The report stated that Cooper Webb could potentially take the no 7 if he keeps going the way he is.
Thoughts????

It is possible that he could lose the number, not saying that would happen...I think #7 would be the only top ten # to be potentially up for grabs , wouldn't RV lose his #2 as well or has he already lost it? heck I can't remember...

To keep a career number you need to score 25 points every year, he didnt get any in SX did he?

It's something like score 25 points every 2 or 3 years. With his injury a few years ago and then the WADA thing, it's been a few years...

I am not sure to be honest...this is what ML512 said in Chisholm's thread about his number "....... Once he earned a career number (#11 was available) you have to score a minimum of 25 points a year to keep it."

so that why I thought it was 25 per year.

He had a one year exemption due to the WADA test. Some guys get a similar thing for an injury. One year only though.

He would need to score 18 more points this year to keep his number.

BUT...as Matthes and JT have said, they wouldn't take his number away from him. It's synonymous with James and especially if he is still racing.

I agree with them. It won't be taken away if he doesn't score the needed points.

•Any rider with a career number must earn at least 25 points next season to keep that number, although exceptions are granted for injury. Riders who lost their career numbers this year were Ryan Villopoto (#2), Ivan Tedesco (#9) and Michael Byrne (#26).

On to the full list below. Riders with a career number are denoted with an asterisk; those with an already-existing career number are italicized, while riders with new career numbers for 2015 are listed in bold.

1 (450MX): Ryan Dungey
1 (450SX): Ryan Dungey
1 (250MX): Jeremy Martin
1 (250SX West): Cooper Webb
1 (250SX East): Marvin Musquin
3*: Eli Tomac
4*: Blake Baggett
5*: Ryan Dungey
6*: Jeremy Martin
7*: James Stewart
10*: Justin Brayton

I stole this off the AMA site

So on another note, who was/is/has the no 8?
Wasnt Grant Langston the last person to use #8, back in 2010?

If someone took 4 eventually they will take 7.

I wouldn't take that to the bank, I think most would have bet he would have the points already.

Lites riders should not have two digit Numbers. The two digit number should be a badge of honor that is earned in the 450 class.

The number structure in this sport makes no sense.

Agreed. I have never liked the career number dealio especially when for instance RC never (except once) ran the #1.

Meanwhile in the stupidest idea ever dept we have semi-permanent numbers for dirtbikers. Where ever you finished last year should be your number this year. It was the most perfect system ever. I know I know dead horse..... Carry on

If he loses it, could he get it back by winning every practice? Or by throwing crazy scrubs and whips while battling just outside the top 10? What if he raced straight rhythm with his son strapped to the rear fender?

Your avatar makes me laugh. Lots of irony in that meme.

Anyone want to ponder a guess as to what number Webb may wind up taking should he end up winning the lites title? Will he go single digit, or will he take a two digit number? What number did he run as an amateur?

Webb will take 2 and the 2 will return to a blue bike. Party like it's 1999. It'll look good rolling out at A1, too.

Honestly, no one wanted that number for years before JS took it, it's really not very popular. I doubt he will lose it either way.
7/13/2016 7:29am
He should just go back to the 259. He had better results with that number anyway.
