ASK THE MXPERTS: IS STEWIE MOVING TO AUSTRALIA?

 

Bob’s your uncle.

Dear MXperts,
I read that James Stewart is going to race in Australia now. Is that true? And, if it is, how is it that he can’t race in the USA, Europe or Peru, but he can race in Australia? I thought his WADA ban was worldwide.

It is true that the Australian Supercross promoter has signed James Stewart (and Chad Reed) to try to breathe some life into their Supercross series, but what you missed was that the Australian Supercross series takes place well after the August 11, 2015, date when Stewart’s WADA ban will be lifted (more accurately on April 12). James has only signed to do one round of the Aussie series, the one at Sydney Olympic Park on November 28, 2015. It is rumored that James will not race the final two National of the 2015 AMA series, even though they are after the date of his suspension, but will race the Monster Cup, Straight Rhythm, Paris (Lille) Supercross and Sydney.
