Mike who currently sits 6th in the 450 standing suffered a severe shoulder injury while practicing earlier this week and will be out for the remainder of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series. He'll need to be off the bike for 6 to 8 weeks.

Edit: Torn labrum and cracked the top of his humerus bone.

Well crap. I was looking forward to seeing him race at Sand Del Lee.

Hope he heals up well.

Sucks for Mike. Hope the recovery goes well.

vomiting equals disqualification.

Bummer. Respect to the guys who don't stop early, Mike has had an awesome career nmw, and far exceeded many of the so called mini prodigies

when in doubt, pin it out

I like Mike. But I didn't know that he was still racing, now that I don't get my Alessi weekly anymore. Get well soon Mike.

He has been awesome and very friendly at The Glade.

Get well soon.

I believe he'll be back up in Canada next year.

I'd bet hes done now. Serious injury and hes getting older. Hopefully he'll continue to show up for some random races

I think he's contracted for another year. There's no doubt he loves moto and if he decides to call it quits he could do a great job in the booth.

I think it's last year at one of the rounds his bike quit on him and instead of heading back to the pits/trailer he walked straight to the announcers booth, put a headset on and joined them. I thought it was pretty cool.

Heal up quickly !!

He will be a solid announcer whenever he does retire

To be clear....I am a big Mike Alessi fan. However, the wording of the announcement seems over dramatic. Written like he would never ride again....

Exactly what I was thinking. It's pretty common to fracture your humerus when you pop your shoulder out. Or at least it happened to me, so I figured it was common.

Bankhart surgery with anchors and a few months out. Usually they feel stronger than new

What a shame. I sure missed seeing him at the Nationals over the past few years. Has to be getting close to retirement and when he does I hope he lands in the booth, he is a natural behind the mic

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

As I understand it, the Alessi's are some of the most approachable people in the pits. Super nice people. Tony included.
