Malcom Stewart broke his femur last night

Malcom Stewart crashed in the whoops section last night and broke his femur...seems likehe is following in his brothers footsteps of being fast and inconsistent.

That is too bad. Those guys are playing with fire for sure.

I always admired how Ryan Dungey was smart and strategic about his racing and managing the extremely high risk at his level. Dungey is fast, but not the fastest guy, and he managed to keep something in reserve and consistently finish well. Dungey wore his competition down. For the length of his career and the results he got, Dungey made it through with comparatively few injuries. His 2017 title win against Tomac, who had far more 1st place finishes, was a testament to Dungey's steady consistency. Ryan did what he had to do, finished behind Tomac but not too far behind, to claim the 2017 title, and then he retired. Ya, it would have been nice for Dungey to beat Tomac in that race, but he did not have to. Dungey did exactly what was necessary without taking on extra risk for ego's sake.

At an infinitely lower level, I try to model my dirt bike riding after Dungey's (and Mr. Smooth Kevin Windham) attitude. I wanna enjoy riding off road for as long as I can while avoiding injury. That means still holding something in reserve when riding fast. To hang it all the way out there like the Stewarts do is cool in the short term, but not terribly sustainable over the long term. All that said, nobody blitzed the whoops like James in his prime...

Mookie needs to hang it up. He's lucky he got a ride this season. He's fast on occasion, but has no stamina because he doesn't train like the others.

His biggest mistake was taking time off when he won the Championship, missed his best opportunities then.

James was good but I watched Travis Pastrana wheelie the entire whoops section at Washougal just skimming the tops. It was amazing to watch.

It sucks that Malcolm broke his leg and I wish him a speedy recovery.

Sucks for Malcolm. It looks like he was in good physical shape this year and ready to stop crashing out of every main.

Sorry to hear about Malcolm - he was riding pretty well. When he crashed I thought "he's following in his brother's footsteps."

Sorry to hear about Malcolm. Very good rider at times, but never great. James, Wow, he was the fastest guy I've ever seen. Shame it didn't last.

I saw that, too. We must have been at the same race years before we met! Small world.

I remember Pastrana being really impressive through the whoops, and Ricky Carmichael (who was still racing in 125s then) also being really fast.

All of the top level riders can all ride just as fast and on the edge like the Stewart brothers. They don't ride that way all the time, to limit the risk of getting hurt and not being able to race. You have to ride smart to win championships
