Mike gave a very honest and heartfelt interview last night touching on everything from his newly defined relationship with his dad to taking full responsibility for his results this summer. He didn't dodge a single question and spoke freely and openly about the speculation surrounding his season.

I've known Mike for many years and was especially proud after the interview for finally taking control of his own career and not making a single excuse for the past. He is just concentrating on moving forward.

PEACE!

Often times, in the lives that come hitherto and leave nothing but longings for days where the sun casts its lemon flavored light on our souls, man, each man, is faced with a choice. Some, upon facing their dilemma, in a moment of short-sided if not outright emotional plea, let their guard down and throw at their opponents spears of injustice. These are words, intent with nothing but dashing on our souls a darkness that too often precedes man. Intent as we are to capture such disparages of the tongue, we must not forget -- and here is an important thing to understand -- that everyone has moments of indiscretion. We must judge the indiscretions of others in the unwavering light our own. To do anything less, is a discredit to every good deed accomplished under the sun or possessed by the night. This is so because our judgments of one another are no less, and perhaps much more, judgments about ourselves.

Such is the case with Mike Alessi, that golden rider, squirmy as he is fast. With his fans, his dad, and his sponsors, Mike is no less guilty than you or I. If Mike has within himself the fortitude to look past his indiscretions, as we often do ours, then we too must champion our cause with the Alessi's and wish them the best with our only motivation springing forth like a surprised jack in the box, that Mike is not only a gifted rider and an asset to the motocross community, but he is, as men come, a kind person.

Is it a good thing that Maya Angelou posts on Vital?

Aw shoot, who will we pick on now?

Just kidding, I wish nothing but success for Mike and hope he's found some peace (and speed) with his decisions.

Best of luck to Mike. Hopefully he can get back on track and win some motos with his dad taking a backseat.

It was a great interview. Everyone should listen to it. The Roger DeCoster news overshadowed Mikes.. What stood out to me was that he is MX ONLY. His commitment to his girlfriend. The fact that he is only 22. And the fact that at age 22 he is STARTING to become an adult. Most people are adults by age 18/19. Wish the best for Mike and think he is making good decisions and sounds happy for the first time.

I've always been a fan of Mikey's. Having said that, the last 2 years his father has led him down a path of destruction. Tony's a father and fathers do what they feel is best for their children and don't give a damned about anything else. well, Mikey's finally awoke and said, WOW, change it now or my career may be done.

Wish Mikey and Jeff all the luck in the World and i pray that Tony lets Mikey take his course and stays hands off. On another note, Where's all that lip flapping about "Team Alessi" being on Yama's next season ??? Mikey made it very clear he plans on statying where he is at currently and very much looks forward to the changes coming @ KTM America. With "The Man" headed to pumpkin country I'd bet Mikey renews a contract asap for the future.

Mike mentioned your name BobbyM and a couple others from Vital MX, as being his supporters on here.

I have been a fan of Mike since his mini days at Lorrettas, and havent seen what his dad has done so wrong,maybe im not an insider like some of you guys, but most Dads support there kids , some times they make mistakes or bad choices, im sure that alot of you guys can look back to choices we made as adults and or as kids and said dam i wish i would have done that different.

Congrats Mike on your Podium at Southwick, and good luck at Steel city, and Pala.

Bobby, if your theory is correct then footage of the starts should still show Mike getting off the gate before anyone else, but being overtaken down the straight. Anyone have any start line footage or photo sequences of this?

what came first...the slow scooter or lack of holeshot confidence?

9/2/2010 11:02 AM

I saw a huge change in Mikey after the GP this year. I think AC dug a deep deep hole in his head and it's taken him quite awhile to get his head screwed back on staright. What's going to be interesting is when Mikey turns it around with "The Man's" help what will BobbyM be saying about that POS KTM as he has called it over and over again?
