A rich guy that is just as big a delusional prick as Tony .


Hopefully enough people will bombard the few sponsors he has left to dump the chump.

I know you don't think a trainer is worth the money. And I don't know if Alessi has a trainer, but probably not because his dad probably thinks he can do it. Something is lacking from his program and it appears to be mental, or physical, because he has some skill. That is what a good trainer can work do.
I never said a trainer wasn't worth the money. If you think a trainer's presence would have prevented what Alessi did I'd advise you to not buy any real estate in south Florida before seeing it.

Well, which is it, is rubbin racin or not? Or is it only legit when your guy does the rubbin?

Bam Bam got fined $5,000 for that little tirade last year roosting the medical guys while they tending to a downed rider.

He and a lapper came together and they both went down, then Bam Bam had a meltdown and cried on the podium.

Hardly anything as severe as this little punk bitch last night, and the entire Alessi clown tribe has a history of this shit for 20 + years.

If that was a love tap Tickle must feel like he got jail raped.

some of these guys aren't very quick on the uptake so to speak so sometimes you have to spell it out for them.

Like when they all go quiet when you ask them why RV was a one man wrecking machine prior to 2010 without his wonder trainer, the zenjens and his ilk just don't get it, but me and Wayne try to work with them the best we can in hopes they'll be able to appreciate it more when they watch a race.

you can't change human behavior wether its a carpenter, the captain of a nuclear sub, a pro MX rider or whatever. some people just aren't right in the head and the Alessi's would appear to be the poster family for that.
While Jeff is a fidiot, he did finish 8th in the 2008 450 MX series.

And he's had good finishes, he's won a couple of outdoor 450 heats.

Last night he just plain ole fucked up. Brain lock, though sadly as much as I wanna like the kid, just like RC said last night; poor judgement, and decision making skills.

With all talk about Allessi's bonehead move, did anybody notice Will Hahns performance? 4th place! He's been riding really well as of late and that's good to see. I watched that Supercross special last weekend and that dude has had a rough career with some pretty nasty injuries... good to see him running as well as he is.

And am I the only one who thinks Dungey was not expecting to be KTM's 2nd best rider? Roczen is impressing the hell out of me.

According to Ryan himself he was missing a piece of the puzzle, that piece was training.

He hired Aldon and took his fitness to the next level.

2009 saw two victories in Supercross, he won the opening round of the outdoors and sat out the rest of the series due to knee surgery.
Not quite a "one man wrecking crew"

Just in case you didn't know, the 250 class was the premier class for a significant amount of the first two decades of MX in the US, the 70's and the 80's.

Also just as an FYI, they finally eliminated the 500 class.
