SX has always been Alessis's weakness. He's has always been substantially more competitive in MX. I don't even think he'll be that next-best guy. After Stewart, Dungey, RV, Reed, Barcia and Canard you are already up to 7th place and I think that will be a guy like Windham or Short (or even more likely Weimer or even Cole Seely who rode a 450 very well in a few rounds last year) before it will ever be Alessi in season ending points.
So here's my official season points picks.
8-Stewart after missing 4 rounds on the season
I left Seely out of these picks because he rode the factory Honda filling in for Canard very well last year, but he won't get anywhere that level of quality bike this year.
Anyone else want to go on record for season result picks.
