Bubba Stewart is OUT

Recommended Posts

According to Vital Bubba is out because he needs surgery on his wrist or something, maybe he needs surgery on his ego. Looks like we have a new champion boys and girls

Wow, he must have really screwed it up last race when he was trying to ignore it...

That's too bad, I can't imagine how much money he's going to lose, however he's richer than shit right now anyways. Gotta wonder though how much this will affect his career to sit out for the rest of the year.

As much as I don't like stewart he's an awesome rider and makes the sport very competitive and entertaining.

He broke his Scaphoid a.k.a. Navicular bone in his wrist. It doesn't heal quickly, and is wayyy painful.

It took my scaphoid about 5 weeks to heal, and it was def way painful. With his accessibility to Hyberbaric chambers, top rehab specialists, and :cough-hgh-cough: He will probably be back in 3-4 weeks, fortunately not in the championship hunt.

So now the 2010 season could be more interesting than ever.

Looks like Windham will have to step up his game and give the kids a run for their money. I think Dungey is a shoe in for the championship now. I wish the kid all the luck in the world. He deserves everything he gets.

Bubba has always been physically fragile. Talent beyond compare, but he breaks easily. How many races/championships has he had to forfeit due to injury in his career?

I wouldn't say breaks easily, if you went half as fast as him you would be easily broke as well. He had a broken wrist and still got on the podium so defiantly not fragile.

This is all PR. Don't you think they knew his scaphoid was chipped after he first did it? They probably stuck him in an MRI machine right after and came to the conclusion that the damage was minimal, and the irregularity of any movement was obviously minimal, so suck-it up he did, and went to the next race.

Because he isn't having the start to the season he had hoped for, and he is hampered by a nagging injury ( like, who the hell rides without pain reminding them of either their most recent wreck or a past bad one?), he doesn't want to fight-out a tough season and wind-up 3rd or 4th because he doesn't feel 100%.

Yamaha probably would rather listen to excuses about JS7's absence rather than see their new bike miss podiums ( Yes..I know Hill is stepping it up...but the marketing plan was built around JS7).

I broke my right arm got 14 pins and a t-shaped plate..back on my bike 21 days after surgery. 6 weeks later broke my left arm and had 14 pins and t-shaped plate inserted: On the start line for my local race 10 days later. Crazy...maybe...sure helped to teach me how not to rely on my arms to ride...

Thats kind of a hard thing to judge, hes taken some massive falls that most people probably would have smashed or broke bones on, got up and hopped back on the bike with some whiskey throttle

I dont think he's fragile, he just rides at the very edge of his abilities more than the other guys do, that means more crashing

If you or I tripled 80 feet onto another rider and slammed the ground, out of the sport. He will miss some of the season and I bet he rides outdoors and smokes the field.

man this sucks him and reedy both out...... According to some this years winer will forever have an asterisk next to his championship. Even though they beat Bubba and Reedy for the years results. I was hoping to see everyone healthy through this season. Bubbles will not ride the outdoors. His contract doesn't include that. He will be back next year for supercross.

I'd take you up on the outdoor bet. I don't think he'll ride the outdoor series again, because he/his team are too concerned about.. injury.

Desperatly trying to keep Bubba healthy enough to competetivly race a complete Supercross season.

this astrix shit is just that.

dungey beat js straight up. not his fault that bubba crashed. as said a million times, you have to be in it to win it.

js's time is up, he won't come back from the injury and be able to lead like he used to. there comes a time when the faster kids move up. and the older guys move out.

sure bubba is fast, but dungei is fast, smooth, and has a head on his shoulders. js is to concerened with the big glam life and segway vids.

it will be great to see JS and reed come back with nothing to loose, but who ever wins this season does it because they put there time in and finished the season with the most points.

he won\t ride the outdoors for a few reasons, his contract and there are far to many fast guys who ride outdoors. js can't handle not being in the lead and crashes. if he can't win it, he won't race it.
