In motocross we expect contact while passing in turns. But dumping your clutch into the side of someone is just stupid. It's Alessi though it's no surprise. His dad and brother already got in trouble last year. His brother who used to race at the pro level is now permanently banned from the tracks.


Heres one of his fans.

What happened that the brother got banned?

Watch the start of this race. Jeff Alessi got busted shining a laser pointer into the eyes of Ryan Villopoto. He was using his dads credentials to get around the race.

Hahaha of course. No one has ever liked the Alessis. Even since their minicycle days. I remember when they both stepped up to the Pro's and Mike went straight into the 450 class and his dad and their crew had "Believe the Hype" shirts and posters and stuff. He got shut down SO hard. It was a great moment. I also seem to remember way back in the day somebody fighting Mike either during or after a supercross race in the pits. I think it was Josh Hansen? Maybe Josh Grant, I dont remember all the details. But either way the Alessis are just assholes.

Was completely a douchebag move. Dude didn't even have an excuse for why it happened. He's supposed to be on pulpmx sometime soon so maybe he'll have some kind of bs explanation or an apology.

Any other person and we're not talking about a suspension and fine. I have more respect for Mike than his ******* dad or goof brother.

It didn't help that broc is RC's rider and all the fans got Ricky and Jeff making it sound like they ruined brocs chance at a title. When in reality tickle is lucky to be in the top ten week in and out. This was a heat race. Brock still qualified for the main. And still finished like 7th one spot behind Alessi.

But that move was just as reckless as Chad Reed on js7 in atl a couple years back. That move cost James a win and screwed up his position in the points. No penalty.

If you're talking about the last lap in 2011, sorry, but that didn't warrant any sort of penalty. Was it a hard block pass, most definitely. Was it CR intentionally trying to take JS out by ramming into him, definitely not. Apples and oranges, IMO. One was a racing incident, one was a malicious act to take out an opponent. CR shut the door on JS, plain and simple.

I agree. Completely different. You can watch Alessi dump the clutch on purpose into the side of him. Then gives some BS about he came into the turn too tight. As for Tickle lucky to be in the top 10, Alessi is no different. Still shouldn't happen.

Yeah tell the Stewart camp that. If Reed had the block pass he wouldn't have gone into Stewart's side. A block pass the rider usually has space to check up. Ama is just kissing carmicheals ass. Alessi is an easy target. Like to see them show some balls and do that barcia for his dangerous move week prior over the triple almost taking out roczen. Can't go after a Honda rider though. Two sets of rules I guess.

I wouldn't say he was lucky to break the top ten. The crash happened in the first heat race. Than tickle raced the semis and qualified. Both sat thru lcq's and 250main. Lots of time to get over the incident.

I would tell Stewart's camp he shouldn't have left the door open, and it wouldn't have been shut in his face. I've raced a lot of MX, and been on both sides of block passes. You get punted over the bales on the last lap because you don't protect the line, that's on you.

And how are you going to penalize Barcia? Was his move the smartest, no, but no contact was made.
