At LA's Dodgertown Supercross, once the door was left open, James Stewart quickly went in to slam it shut it on Kawie pilot Jake Weimer. KTM's Ryan Dungey (#5) probably had the best view of this pass at the race...
After executing a classic "block pass" move, Stewart forces Weimer wide...giving him no place to go but off the track...
To his credit, Weimer attempts to ride it out, but as they say....'easier said, than done,'...
The moment of truth...Once he was up and over the berm, Weimer's fate was sealed...
As you can clearly see in this shot....bike and rider now part ways....
Part of racing is mixing it up in the turns, and doing whatever you need to do to make a pass. But in this case, was it just racing? Or a 'dirty' move on Stewarts part?
We're pretty sure we know what Jake Weimer thinks about this particular maneuver. How about you?
