Stewart's Injury(s)

Supercross

I think Stewart mentioned in his call-in interview that he broke a bone in his hand? Is this true?

I dont know why he would say he might be back next week if he knew he broke his hand

He did say it.

Stewart was interviewed on the SPEED television broadcast of the race where he revealed he had not only hit his head last week, but also broke his hand and tweaked a few other old injuries. Based on that, we would expect Stewart to at least miss this weekend’s race in Houston. After that race comes the only off-weekend of the season for Easter, which could provide enough time for some riders to come back into the series.

It'll probably become serious enough to keep him out of the nationals. :thumbsup:

i think he did. but it must not be that serious of one. i have fractured my hand before and while it hurt it was still very usable. strength wasn't there and gripping hard was next to impossible. should be interesting to see how this plays out. plus it would be 2 weeks to heal. I'm sure by then he will be getting the strength back some and the pain will almost disappear when the adrenaline kicks in... look a kdub! dude can barely walk and does 28 no issues!

Im not claiming to know any facts... but I still believe they misunderstood him. They asked him about his past injuries when he mentioned the broken hand. I dont think its broken. The whole world would know via twitter by now if he did indeed break it.

Not sure what could have been misunderstood. :thumbsup: Here's the interview.

Sorry missed the link you posted... Guess I misunderstood then. I thought he said the part about the hand after the hard hit question. Thats what happens when alcohol and SX mix. lol

I think that 'hand' is code for 'Pride'. His pride is broken.

Normally I would agree but he clearly stated his pride was his worst injury as well.

But you forget, K-Dub is a God.

I dont dislike Stewart but I will be amazed if he rides Outdoor Natls this year.

why?

why?

because thats how he acted the last few years, if this was pre 09 stewart i would say he would be riding whether in a cast or not, he would be in outdoors. remember how fast he was in outdoors what happened :thumbsup:

he had a sx only team and they have been very open about them not wanting to do it even after he left. but i guess you have a point! i just don't see it! oh well... moving on! here is to outdoors..

I'm getting those same vibes from Stewart as well regarding the latest injury. I think he "KNOWS" his only shot at a title with RV and RD racing the outdoors is with himself at 100% physical strength and "NO" injuries whatsoever. Anything less and he probably will not even line up to race. Prove me wrong James. Get out there and race. We need you out there and kicking @#@ again. I'm tired of this total domination follow the leader(RV) racing we got now in SX. We want to see a battle at the front instead of 2-3 guys battling trying to make it in the top 10 every week.

For all the reasons in above posts. I would almost be willing to bet he doesnt race Outdoors but i sincerely hope I'm wrong. I'll be at Highpoint and want to see all the top riders out there!

I'd be surprised if he doesn't race the nationals. 2 lackluster SX only seasons - I bet he doesn't want to keep going down that road. He wants redemption (I hope, have no clue where his mindset is) And he's learned that he can't solely rely on Supercross for that. Plus, he's had his most success outdoors (24-0) he has to have at least a little confidence with that history.

James isn't out of this yet.
