You gotta admit that Mike has never looked better than he has this year riding SX .

Tony and Mike back together and doing it their way and looking damn good doing it.

Can't wait till Hangtown.

MotoConcepts is looking pretty good for their choice.

And the best part is Tony is involved but we are not hearing any drama , Mike is doing decent , hopefully he will come alive Outdoors.

no offense but...

we are missing a lot of top riders....he would be lucky to break top 10 if we had some healthy racers. I have him picked for 5th in my fantasy this week....first time ever.

No offense but Your logic is Flawed, Mike has 8, 10th or better finishes in 11 rounds ,

As I said in another thread, with 4 of the big 5 out....there is some serious podium opportunities available to guys that wouldn't otherwise get a sniff of the podium (like Alessi), and-as ocscottie pointed out-the bonus money that goes with it.

And on the drama, I think the Alessi's finally got a set up they can work with...a team that provides bikes, transportation, and a pit....and then gets out of the way and lets the Alessi's do it how they want to do it. Factory teams aren't so hands off, and that causes Drama with the dad.

Minus the blatant track cutting at Daytona, trying to line up in the gate sideways, messing with Hansen during practice then running away and lying about it, taking out Tedesco then lying about it and a couple other things Tony and Mike have had a decent year.

don't disagree...canard went out early. been losing top guys ever since. look i'm not trying to bash Mike...he's just not great at supercross. I think its admirable that he fights for his positions and all but usually its for a lap or 2 and then he gets ate up by the podium guys. I would love to see him move up positions instead of going backwards.

And Jeff only got lapped once at Indy, a big improvment over the previous time he made the final.

You're right, SX is not when Mike is at his best, but he has made major improvements. His confidence has got to be sky high going into the outdoors after this SX season.

Both Alessis are doing good this year. I thought Mikey faded last weekend but I was glad to read that it was his bike. He might have made the podium....

daytona isn't a typical supercross, its more moto-x than it is super-x. mike should win there.

One thing that really derailed Mike in my opinion is that horrific crash on the KTM in the nationals last year. I think he would of been a pretty good contender. I was watching inside the outdoors and forgot how bad that was. He was running up front and looking great.

can you imagine how good they'd be doing with DV at the helm,? wink

At least DV could explain him what`s coming if you take out K-dub.whistling

Good luck to Mike and Jeff in Toronto,,

|

3/23/2012 3:18 PM

He looked great while leading last week then when he made that mistake and lost the lead it looked like he lost his rhythm. I think he looks great on the Suzuki and I can't wait to see him outdoors this year.

There is one thing that is for sure in motocross. Nothing is for sure!

I don't see him beating Ryan/Ryan or a healthy Townley. But, I'd love him to prove me wrong!

Great riders but for instance in Mike's case I don't think he's any better this year as a lot of good guys are not riding,maybe he will have a good outdoor season but yeah that smack on the head sure knocked his results,shame that KTM stint didn't work out for him,after superb rides at Hangtown and the USGP at Glen Helen on the 350l I thought he was onto the podium again
