I don't think there has ever been a rider with more "OMG" moments in their career than James. So, seeing that scrub last Saturday got me thinking about all his "OMG" moments throughout his career and thought I would make a list of them. If anyone have pics or videos, post them. And no, I'm not talking about the crashes!

1. 2002 jumping a quad at Phoenix SX on a 125.
2. 2003 jumping a quad at Vegas SX on a 125.
3. 2003 Bubba Scrub at Budds Creek MX
4. 2004 triple, triple, triple at Vegas SX on a 125.
5. not sure what year, jumping laroccos leap on a 125.
6. 2007 scrubbing pass on RC at A1.
7. 2007 jumping the entire whoop section at LV SX.
8. 2010 jumping a rhythem lane in 2 jumps at US open
9. 2011 triple, triple, quad at A2.
10. 2011 jumping tha wall jump at Daytona.
11. 2011 jumping a quad at LV SX.
12. many, many practice videos.

I know there's many more. Can you add to the list? I know the JS7 bashers will be along any minute to post stupid shit!

Atlanta SX. Pass on Weimer I believe, or maybe Short. It didn't look like much on TV, but It was CRAZY in person. It was the only time of the night that the entire crowd was on their feet at once. It was my oldest son's first SX and when James made that move we both yelled and looked at either other like "did you see that!!" I've seen James ride quit a few times and everytime I see him ride he does something that makes say "daaaaaamn." In his 125 days I use to think to myself "that boy just ain't right!!" LOL!!

Calling Reed out and letting him pass him at Unadilla while Reed was on the 250f and James the 125 -- That was pretty classic commentary by Bailey as well....That day alone STILL haunts Reed and is why there is so much shall we say tension between the two....

Too many to list but that's a good start right there.

When was it that he did the look-back in the middle of the whoop section?

Nr. 7 on that list is my favorite.

Soaking that jump up past Sellards in 03. I have no idea of the track, but its on The Great Outdoors 2. Insane.

Washougal 2003. Stewart is coming through the pack in Moto 2. He goes through the s-turn and dropped down the hill right before the Chuck Sun (?) tabletop in the center of the track. In 2003 there was a mini-whoop/step-up. He wheelied that single and continued wheeling all the way until his front tire touched half-way up the face of the table. THEN, he scrubbed the shit out of the table so hard. My dad and I looked at each other and both said to each other, jinx-style, "DID YOU SEE THAT?! HOLY SHIT!"

I saw this in person and it looked way crazier... but check the 2:21 mark here.

Seriously, Great Thread.

2008 - his Lakewood leap past Davi Millsaps for the lead. He came up a bit short, but he turned something into a double that nobody else probably even considered trying.

2007 - Can't remember the race, but the supercross finish line jump he crashed on. His bike was totally mangled and he caught back up and passed Reed for the win (I think).

2009 - U.S. Open of SX practice: He did some ridiculous quad in practice. I don't even know how he stopped for the tight following turn. I would try to find a video but I'm at work and can't figure out how to open a new explorer window. It's on youtube.

Love this thread! Keep posting videos :D

THis is gonna be long, James does these things everyday. Someone with the time should put together a bunch of short vid clips of him through the years, that would be sweet.

The pass that he put on David Pingree at his first professional race A1 in 2002. On video it may not have looked like much, but in person it looked like he jumped under Pingree. The jump was a tabletop that had kind of a curve to it. That is the moment that I think that people realized that James' talent was on another level.

Check out these videos from A3 of the same year. This is a 16 year-old kid in his first professional race.............crazy.

In 2008, that was Freestone that you are thinking of. and yes, that was amazing!

he's definitely had some "OMG" moments.

i witnessed both his huge quad in Vegas on the 125, but also his HUGE endo another year at Vegas.

one that sticks out to me though was at the World Mini when he was on his 80, he was triple tripling through a section that the fastest 250 Pro's were only doubling through. the same year Pastrana was quad doubling it on a 125, ate shit ass over tea-kettle, got up and nailed it the next lap.

but Stewart tripling through it was unworldly to us, it was unreal

Freestone 08??

He squared up a half track roller through a turn and launched over Davi Millsaps to flat ground to take the lead. Insane!! Gonna be a damn shame when he's not on the line..

I saw him pull a tear off while hauling around a big sweeper at Southwick on his 125. I was never the same haha

Also just remembered..Hurricane Hills Pennsylvania. James was still a little guy on an 80 and he had to come out and race for some sponsored race. He was jumping the elevator step up on his 80. This thing would eat your lunch if you came up short and at that time it was mostly 250 guys jumping it and a few experts on 125s. Kid cleared it every lap, I remember my dad telling me that he's never seen anyone ride like that before. To quote my dad "That kid looks like he is going to crash every time he leaves the ground" haha

Two people that have always blown me away in terms of just saying screw and going for something. Stewart and Pastrana, both have an unbelievable ability to do the unthinkable.
