Malcolm Stewart Undergoes Knee Surgery

Yesterday, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Malcolm Stewart underwent surgery to repair a knee injury sustained in a recent practice accident, according to a post on his social media. 

After claiming a career-best third in last year’s 450SX standings, the 30-year-old was exceptional in the opening two rounds of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, leading multiple laps at Anaheim 1 and in San Diego prior to being injured.

“Today is surgery day,” he said. “So its a big day. We are here in Vail, Colorado. I’m excited to get this over with. I’m nervous and excited at the same time because I don’t know how this process is going to be. I know I’m in good hands being up here.”

Nathan Ramsey, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team Manager: “It was very tough to receive the news that Malcolm will need to undergo knee surgery. He has worked so hard to be in a position to win races this year and I truly believe he was ready. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing program will support him in every way that we can through his recovery and we can’t wait to get him back on track and back at the races.”

It is yet to be determined when Stewart will be fit to return to action following his recovery.
