So the big rumor to pop up this weekend is that James Stewart is riding for JGR on a Suzuki in 2012. It might sound like a shitty mad-lib, but I am totally for realsies here. I have it on very good authority that he has indeed been on a Suzuki for weeks now, but can neither confirm nor deny that it is a JGR bike. But, from what I am hearing, the JGR thing is all but a done deal and Stewie will be riding for them in Supercross and Outdoors. Personally, I am kind of fucking psyched. I am happy to get things back to normal, and get the universe balanced. Once again, I am not a Stewart fan; he is a weird motherfucker off the track, and is kind of a prick. Dude rolls around with an entourage like he has people gunning for his DNA. BRO is going in the direction of a Prince or a Michael Jackson. That bodes ill by all accounts.
But this is BROtocross, we keep it real. Realer than anyone else. And that means admitting that James Stewart is the best rider in the world. Better than Villopoto, better than Reed, better than Dungey, and I am not even going to give Europe the satisfaction of a mention. In a heads up race, everyone riding at 100%, Stewart is miles ahead. Fucking miles. He is Ricky Bobby to everyone else’s Cal Naughton. He sucked on the Yamahas and still won races. So here’s hoping that Suzuki is a solid fit for him so we can get back on track. I feel like the continuum of space and time is all out of whack with people thinking Villopoto or Dungey are the best right now. I like both of those guys more than Stewart, but I am sorry, they are not better. Just watch each of them ride. Stewart goes stupid while they go just a little bit ignorant. And I also hope Joe Gibbs gives Stewart a whack across the face with a newspaper and just says something along the lines of “Stop it. Stop it.”
Update 10/30 – This post is still getting a lot of traffic, so I feel like I should let people know that Stewart is not going to Suzuki for 2012 as JGR signed a deal with Yamaha. I seriously have no idea how you people could possibly not know this. Do you even know who James Stewart is?
