Malcolm Stewart comes back from bad crash at New Orleans SX

2 years ago

JDR/J-Star/KTM rider Malcolm Stewart showed he was among the most determined riders of the night when he recovered from a hard crash while running in 2nd place on the fifth lap of the race held at the Louisiana Superdome.

Stewart had a great start in his heat race rounding the first corner in the top five. He quickly moved into 3rd place before the end of the first lap. He then set his sights on the 2nd place ride of Phil Nicoletti. On the fifth lap of the heat race he was able to make the pass stick and claim 2nd position. A lap later he crossed the finish to secure his spot and earn a great gate pick for the main event.

Stewart got the start he needed as the gate dropped for the Supercross Lites main event. He was 3rd around the first corner and on the tail of the leaders. On the third lap he was able to pass current point leader Justin Barcia to take 2nd position. He maintained the 2nd place spot for the next three laps before he suffered a huge crash in the whoops. He was down for over a lap being looked after by medics before he stood up on his own and got back on his bike. Now a lap down, Stewart set to work to salvage any positions and points possible. He caught one rider by the eighth lap and was able to make up a 15 second deficit on another rider to move into 17th when the chequered flag flew.

“This is just another disappointing race to add to my season. I was feeling really good today and just made a mistake in the whoops that cost me a lot of time and positions. I am thankful to walk away uninjured but am really upset that I was not able to get a spot on the podium,” remarked Stewart.
