Anyone with any shame would have taken his kids to roadracing and stayed there, motocross and offroad is a family sport where people with integrity and love of the sport raise their kids.
I hope he stays healthy, I don't wish injury on anyone.
It's better if he doesn't have an excuse for failure.

+1, but I think Mike tried to change his ways last year in the outdoors with the way he was acting or maybe he got stuck at the airport with some Hare Krishna and started to believe in their ways. Either way the kid needs to cut the strings from his dad.

Tangent mode on:

One of the best mx races I have ever seen included the Alessi bros at my local track. This was in November, 2004.

Out of Motocross Action Magazine:

"...At Cycle Ranch there were 38 Pros on the line for the 125/250 Pro Shootout to do battle for a piece of the $24,800 pie. The likes of Tommy Hahn, Ty Conner, Kyle Phoenix, Johnny Marley, J.J. Pecsok, James B Marshall, Brandon Beabout and many many more were lined up against Mike and Jeff Alessi. With Tommy Hahn having never been beaten at Cycle Ranch, everyone was waiting for the bar banging battle to ensue. What they got was a lesson in how to demolish your competition (also a good lesson to watch). In true RC or Bubba style, Mike went out there and killed the pack every time his gate dropped. During the week he participated in some local class racing and was laying down what was nothing short of incredible lap times at 2:06 on the very fast 2 1/2 mile track.

Come Sunday, the gates were filled and so were the stands. There was excitement in the air that hasn't been there since Robbie Reynard and Travis Pastrana battled at Cycle Ranch in the spring of '03. During Sunday morning practice Johnny Marley and Ty Conner started working on a move that I have never seen anyone even attempt in my 3 1/2 years of riding at Cycle Ranch. They were doubling into the inside on a 60-foot step-up into a 180 degree right hand corner and making the inside line. Then, in the back of the track, Mike Alessi and Ty Conner had the craziest idea of how to negotiate the 80 plus yards of whoops that lead into a 40-50ft quad. They were hitting the last whoop and sailing over the quad from there (4th gear pinned). ..."


Incredible riding.

Tangent mode: off

Dunno. I wasn't there, but apparently RV had compained to AMA about J-Laws behavior... apparently the AMA said to J-Law don't interfere on the track, but then J-Law did it again and it was more than likely witnessed by flagmen and the other AMA staff. Unwise move.

I imagine the extra penalties on him were for the 'track' stuff. $3,500 for the fight (each), and $7K for the on-track behavior.

All in all, it seems like MX pro's are pretty well behaved.

Lawrence deserved a few loosened teeth for that bullshit, he had been told to quit fuckin with him before that happened.

Wild stuff though.

Messing with someone's head and launching your bike at them aren't even comparable.

He was doing more than messing with his head , but your right ,he should have decked him rather than scratch that sweet plastic on his bike.

it's not my precious premier series it is the promoters series and forcing vested riders to compete with non vested riders from your own sub series defeats the point of a premier series supported by a sub series. it's not real complicated but as you're slow on the uptake I've spelled it out for you. no thanks needed I enjoy helping the noobs learn about racing MX and SX.

Well since they've been doing it this way since before there was SX. I don't think they are too worried about it. As such, maybe you shouldn't be worried about it either.

They haven't worn vests since the 70's.

as such maybe I'm not. here's a hint. if you're going to hit from the white tee's on the par 5's you look pretty foolish with a 4 wood. man up.

Did you find any decent courses in Dallas?
I have to go there next month and may drag my clubs, double up meetings one day and try to get 36 or 54 holes in on a free day.
