Last year marked James Stewart’s first full season with the Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing Team, and the multi-time AMA Supercross and Motocross Champion did not disappoint. In 2013, Yoshimura Suzuki’s Stewart celebrated multiple milestones in both AMA Supercross and Motocross and also raced his Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450 to a number of victories and podium finishes. Now, as Stewart heads into the 2014 racing season, the Yoshimura Suzuki rider is focused on improving his already impressive past performance.
This year, Stewart will again campaign the premiere 450 classes in both AMA Supercross and Motocross. Naturally, his weapon of choice will be the 2014 Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450. Since its debut, the RM-Z450 has been one of the most dominant four-stroke motocross bikes ever produced. Once Stewart was added to the mix, the pair became a fiercely competitive combination.
Also as was the case last year, Stewart will be the sole representative for Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing in 2014. Although this is somewhat uncommon for the championship-winning team, Stewart has a solid reputation not only for being a positive ambassador for the team but also for the sport overall.
Yoshimura Suzuki Team Manager Mike Webb also returns this year to successfully pick up with Stewart where they left off last year. Webb has already led Suzuki to 22 major Off-Road Championships as that team’s longtime manager and he is eager to add Supercross and Motocross titles to his lengthy and impressive resume.
