As you probably know, Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Mike Alessi injured his knee before Round 4 of the AMA National Motocross Series in Pennsylvania. There was potential he could be out for the entire season. But he is already back on the bike practicing!
But this info and photos below just came in from Alessi racing:
Adversity: a state, condition, or instance of serious difficulty or adverse fortune
This is the current situation for Mike Alessi, the #800, who is coping with an injury while in pursuit of the 2009 AMA 450 Motocross championship! Mike is currently second in points, 19 behind team-mate Chad Reed.
Happy birthday wish from all of us to Rita Coombs and Tim Cotter. Rita & Tim have always treated the Alessi boys like family … Happy Birthday Rita & Tim!
Bret along with Mike Bier and Tom Carson from CTi knee braces produced a custom one of kind knee brace to accommodate the doctors orders! Thanks guys for the expert attention.
#800 Mike Alessi was back in the saddle today!
