MX nationals Shocker - #800 out for the season
It was his to lose and that's what just happened. As hard as it is too believe, after Ryan Villopoto dropped out of the season due to a knee injury, basically handing over the championship to his Amateur years arch-rival, Mike Alessi hurt himself badly yesterday evening while practicing for the High Point MX National. Mike's injury is pretty serious with first reports of a split knee-cap.
The title chase is back for grab with Reed, Josh Grant and Andrew Short all in good position.
Very unfortunate and very sad for Mike who was on a roll after going 1-1 at Hangtown and Freestone.
