James Stewart’s fame was born from being insanely fast… borderline reckless. But Bubba’s masterful performance in San Diego this past weekend – laced with bold strategy and steady riding – revealed the modern day JS7 as he clawed his way past Ryan Villopoto for the Supercross victory. Known to charge his hardest, despite the threat of crashing from the sheer power of today’s 450 cc dirt bikes, James’ riding in San Diego was nothing short of an eyebrow raiser for fans and the industry alike as he displayed a more mature, solid brand of racing for the fans.
For Ryan Villopoto, the key was to move forward after Anaheim II as fast as possible. The three-time defending King of Supercross threw himself back on target in his mission to defend his Championship with a commanding victory in Oakland this past weekend. Despite a late, ferocious charge from fellow Oakley star James “Bubba” Stewart, RV exerted his dominance and closed out the race to grab back the points lead in the Championship standings. “It feels good to be up here tonight,” he said following the win. “We have put in a lot of work at the test track, and I have a great team behind me and a great bike under me. I hope I can carry this momentum into Anaheim next weekend.”
