When James Stewart launched his podcast in early December, some questioned whether he would have the motivation to continue. The early signs are promising, thankfully, as the second episode was just released on the various different channels. This episode is a little longer and contains insight from Stewart’s career, as well as his predictions for 2022 Monster Energy Supercross. Yes, he is really an open book nowadays! The most interesting point to arise from this is that he was in talks with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing in 2016 (head to 27 minutes).
Another interesting point is that he has picked Eli Tomac to claim the 450SX title in 2022 Monster Energy Supercross. “If I did not have him in first then I would not even have him in my top five,” was an extremely interesting assessment of the former champion. When the podcast show was launched, Stewart claimed that he was excited to be honest with his opinions and he has certainly delivered on that front through two episodes. It would have been easy for him to go with cookie-cutter predictions, but he stayed true to what he believes. The full episode is available below.
