After the Australian Supercross promoters expressed their dismay at James Stewart’s lack of communication with them about whether he was racing or not. James followed up with the following Instagram post saying that he wouldn’t be coming to the Sydney Supercross (which given that Australia is on the other side of Date Line is only two days away). No one expects James to race if he is injured, but the Sydney promoters did deserve more of a heads up than a couple days notice before the event (and that seems to have only come when they embarrassed him with a press release this morning). The Sydney promoters scrambled and got Cooper Webb to race in his place.
Here is James’ Instagram.
