    I've never been much of a James Stewart fan and the TV junk didn't help. That said, I sure wish he'd find his lost mojo and learn to ride within his limits. There's no denying that he can ride, and it has always seemed to me that if he could find a little restraint, he'd be hard to beat for a championship. That would be interesting to watch.

    Motocross has been killing itself ever since it started. They talked about it on that show 'Inside the Outdoors' in one episode. How kids need to be homeschooled since they travel so much. Parents mortgage/sell the farm to keep the kid in bikes and gear. All for the very slim chance of being on a factory team that actually pays a salary. Most riders, even in the pro classes, barely make anything. And then if you get injured? Teams can change riders like changing underwear.

    Makes it very difficult to promote talent to the pro series. The series/promoters/factories need to find ways to support the amateur ranks better. It will make for a stronger series in the long run.

    Bring back the 2 strokes, families can't afford $20k diesels that blow up every week and a half.

    Did you not see RC regularly school him? And he would still crash out.

    No I wasn't following the sport that close then, but please answer this.

    If RC raced JS now (stewarts injury taken out of the equation) and JS dusted RC (he would) the first thing people would say is that RC is older and rusty.

    Works both ways. If RC wants to be known as the GOAT he needs to act like it and that starts with getting some decent looking sports jackets.

    If you weren't watching MX at that time then you are not qualified to make assesments on RC's abilities back in the day. Do yourself a favor and watch some RC/ JS battles. There was some good racing between the two, maybe after watching it you will appreciate why RC is called the GOAT. HE WAS AN ANIMAL.

    I don't remember the location but there was a race when RC cartwheeled on a downhill, flew off the bike and was up on his feet waiting for his bike to stop tumbling so he could get back on it.

    No, I don't. I was there, but I have to go back and look it up. I'm thinking it was James?

    I went on record way back in post 198 of this thread. I believe I was the first to do so. See above. So far, my Windham pick for 5th is out, but Stewart in 8th still looks possible! :lol3

    You mean to tell me these velour sport jackets with zippers all over them that I bought are no longer in fashion?!?!?!? I even bought a Monster Energy pin to complete the ensemble.
