The season came to an unofficial end this weekend in Las Vegas after riders and fans had decended upon the City of Sin.  While the big news was James Stewart’s dominating performances on both nights in the 2010 YZ450F’s racing debut, that was just a fraction of the interesting tid bits to come out.  As everyone knows, many teams and racing budgets remain very much up in the air at this very late point in the year, so where the US Open has typically been the place for riders and teams to debut new setups, many were instead still working off of 2009 contracts or extended deals.  Attendance was definitely down the first night, and Stewart even went so far as to say on the podium that more people need to start showing up or they are going to shut the whole race down.  Still it was incredible watching Stewart ride, as he looked extremely comfortable aboard his shiny new machinery.  It’s no secret that James took home the big prize of the weekend, but there was a lot more that went down that you probably haven’t hear about. Here is your Monday serving of some nice and juicy Kickstart…with a side of awesome.
