If anyone had any doubt about how seriously MX Sports was taking the laser pointer issue, wonder no longer. Jeff Alessi (as an athlete) and Tony Alessi (as team manager) get indefinite suspensions. There's a $10,000 fine to Mike (paid by the team and donate to the Asterisk Mobile Medical unit), and loss of points for the day.

Check out the photos below, and you can see the light dancing on Ryan Villopoto's visor.

Sounds like Mike might be an escape goat in all of this.

I feel bad for Mike and hope he will use it as motivation to live up to his abilities. As for the rest of them, they got what they deserved.

You're trying to use logic in your post and 4stroke doesn't appreciate logic! (FACT)

Tony hasn't done shit. 10,000 for Mike what a crock of shit, Coombs is a idiot motherfucker. what a bunch of bullshit, Tony nor Mike shined the lazer or had anything to do with it. you're a motherfucker DC.

* that's all the negative crap I will post I hope I don't get kicked from here but this is bullshit. It had to be said. RV gets to hit people in the face with his bike but Tony gets suspended for nothing? Okay now I'm stopping.

As posted above and in the feature section, all evidence and rulings have been accounted for. The evidence is pretty clear. Tony really is a whack job. I feel bad for Mike.

Admitting to and begging for forgiveness would be a good place to start. If I was advising him, calls to Malcom, Ryan, DC Mathes etc.. may go a long way and start the process. If he doesn't reach out to them, they should make the indefinite suspension permanent.

I agree, it's BS that Mike has to pay for the idiocy of his brother and dad. If anything they should have just fined MC WAY more than 10k and not punished Mike for the actions of his idiot team.

I am still bewildered that I captured this moment. This is my photo and I was shocked when I found it after going through all of my Washougal photos.

You're not that really much of a mouth-breather, are you?

The penalties were in accordance with the AMA rules and signed off by Roy Janson. Why do you have to spin this as Davey being vindictive? rail on Roy, while you're at it. And, if you represent Tony's supporters, then you're doing a spectacular job at helping his cause.

Feel for Mike. But sometimes the people that you surround yourself with will bring you down regardless of what you do. It is in their nature to do so. This may be the best thing to happen to Mike.
