.......continues to be quiet on James' second moto departure.

Any of you insider types picking up any vibes on what's happening in JS7 land?

Plenty of rumor and speculation to go around- bike problems, fitness, nagging wrist injury, accidental cicada ingestion, fear of double-digit finish, reality show dramatic scripting, etc.

I just find it odd in this day of information overload that we've been hearing nothing, and nobody seems to be talking about it.

Expiring minds want to know.......

Ran out of recording space on the Fuel cameras so called it a day.

Pitboard read "Cameras dead - don't catch Dungey, just park it"

No news, is the norm for the Stewart camp.

He was overly fatigued and not comfortable with his setup and decided to call it a day instead of pushing it and possibly getting injured again. What else do you want them to say?

I saw Sorby cleaning his boots after that moto and asked him what was up, and he said he stayed clear of James when he came off. So I would assume James was not happy about it whatever it was. But James was locked tight in his motor home like he was pretty much all day.

You just made that up. Admit it.

What? Sorby is his cleaning lady now?

Sunday night on Wind Tunnel of Speed... When they reported on the Unadilla race, they report the message from the Stewart camp... Was a lack of fitness for the pull off.

When I was watching the internet broadcast and I seen the interview with Steward on the podium... I was saying to myself... "James looked spent..." He did look really tired compared to Dungey and DeSalle.

Isn't it safe to assume that if he pulled off that he either didn't feel ok or his bike was dangerous? He admitted he doesn't like Unadilla... Maybe he took a rock to the sack and called it a day. If he pulls off at Southwick, then, hmmmmmm

Guilty.

The truth is the director of the show yelled "cut" not fully understanding how the sport works. Only James listened. Does that sound better?

“I knew I wasn’t going to be 100-percent coming in here, but I can’t take anything away from those guys,” he said. “They were riding really good and I didn’t have anything for them. I’m confident in myself and my team that things will only improve from here” said Stewart.

James was totally smoked even before the 2nd moto even started. It was blatantly obvious when Erin Bates was interviewing him.

Locked in his motor home all day? But he was there for the fans.

Possibly the strangest thing I have seen is that cubicle they built in the pits at the Paris Bercy SX last year to hide from the the rest of the riders. For a guy who wants to be high profile why does he isolate himself so much?

Sure enough, he didn't look ready to line up against them.

In the interview I did with Brooks after the race, there were no excuses or anything like that. I don't think they're "hiding" anything.

Mathis is getting weeded out of the pro pits one team at a time he and his almighty will be outsiders soon.

Does this imply that he is going to drop Todd Potter as his trainer and go back to Baker?

This is like watching an improv troupe attepting to do a roast of a rider. I guess I don't get it.

The only camp I saw was Sorby's tent that he camped in outside of James' bus. smile

As far as communication, they said all they wanted to say after the race. That he wasn't comfortable in the second moto, and rather than wad it up, he pulled off. Do you want a new and improved story the next day? Or the day after that?

We've got a week-and-a-half to Southwick. I know James is working on his sand riding and fitness (Mike Alessi is headed down there after today's practice at Southwick). You can all try to align your satellites over Florida, and see what you can pick up.

James tweeted, " I gave it my all" , but didn't have enough to finish moto 2?
Will he gain that much fitness in two weeks?

They gave no excuses, but did they give reasons for dropping out?

And who could blame them. Just look at some of the post on here.

I don't get how a professional race team, can not or will not do a race recap / press release weekly, or at least after each race. It's funny how Larry Brooks was so vocal about another rider not thanking his sponsors, but his team's lack of informing the ticket paying public on what is going on with his team seems to do a disservice to his own sponsors and fans.

8/17/2010 10:35 AM

I wonder if Stewart will ever win a Championship again?

We get deluged with press releases from the teams, and they get generally get dumped into a press release section. But hopefully you feel better about the team now...



TEAM SAN MANUEL’S JAMES STEWART PODIUMS IN 1ST MOTO AT UNADILLA NATIONAL – AUGUST 14TH, 2010

Murrieta, CA (August 15, 2010) - After a long hiatus from racing due to an injury early in the 2010 Supercross season, Team San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart made his return to racing at the infamously gruelling Unadilla race track. Having had only a few short weeks to prepare for the longer moto format of the Outdoor National Series, the Team goal was to race, qualify and “have some fun” in Stewart’s own words.

James Stewart’s day started strong. Posting the fastest lap times in both practices with an amazing 2:05.839, proving he has the speed he’s known for, Stewart began Moto 1 with a solid start. In 4th position on Lap 1, he quickly but strategically worked his way into 3rd by Lap 2. Continuing to advance, Stewart moved into 2nd place by Lap 6, holding that position for several laps. Towards the end of Moto 1, Stewart dropped back one position, but with a solid hold, finished the race in 3rd, making the podium in his first return to the track in several months. On the podium, when asked if he had anyone to thank, he credited the support of his fans on the track for helping him push through the challenging race, along with that of his family, team and sponsors.

In Moto 2, Stewart didn’t fare as well. A rough start landed him in the 15th position in the first lap and despite working his way into 11th place by Lap 4, Stewart was forced to pull off the track. Simply put “We’re not 100% yet, but I’m confident in myself and my team that things will only improve from here” said Stewart. From Team Manager Larry Brooks “This was a learning experience for our Team. Though many of us have years of Motocross racing experience, as a team, we have not raced Motocross in a long time. We had some challenges but we learned a lot today and will do what it takes to improve before Southwick.”

Rookie Kyle Chisholm rounded out Team San Manuel’s 2009 team. In 2008 team, Team San Manuel Yamaha consisted of 2004 Supercross Champion Chad Reed and former West Coast Lites Champion Nathan Ramsey -- the newly-formed endeavor garnered its first championship title that season.

Platitudes and euphemisms. Nebulous generalizations. And stuff like that.

Are probing questions really a roasting?
Come on, are James and the bike so out of shape that he couldn't finish the moto at all
without crashing? This should be news. This is an elite team and one of the greatest riders ever, with a renowned trainer. No story here?

Move along folks, nothing to see
