Stewart's Lakewood Crash- Another Angle
Thanks to our friends at VitalMX, this better view of Stewart's crash at Lakewood has surfaced.

The section that JS crashed in was really gnarly and was causing problems for guys all day long. The section was so rough, so rutty that the world's best riders often looked like amateurs out there.
