CHINO, Calif. – Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s James Stewart announced late Thursday that he will sit out the last three Monster Energy AMA Supercross events in order to fully recover from injury.

At least weekend’s Minneapolis race Stewart suffered a get-off and tweaked the wrist he’d initially injured at the end of the 2012 AMA Pro Motocross season.

Stewart plans to be rested, rehabbed and ready to race at the season-opening round of the AMA Pro Motocross season in May.

“The decision to sit out the last few races is a tough one for us,” Stewart said. “The Supercross season hasn’t been going the best but I’ve been having a great time racing thanks to the fans and my Yoshimura Suzuki team. They’ve all been supporting me the whole time. So to have this last injury – I hurt my wrist in the heat race and then again in the main event – was a disappointment.

“I think this is the smart decision for us overall and now I’m going to focus on recovering and getting ready for the motocross season. I’m psyched to be on the gate for Hangtown and now I just want to get the 2013 AMA Pro Motocross Championship.”
