I have never been a big fan nor a hater of Mike Alessi. But lately he has been pretty entertaining and seems to be coming into his own. I had to laugh at the FIRST LAP at Red Bud, Mike pulls the hole shot and lead over the leap with a big fist pump to the crowd:applause: He knew he wouldn't be there long and I thought it was classic. And at the Indy supercross this year he rolled himself up in a turn, sat up and cheered the crowd on:applause: He seems to be having fun and I wouldn't mind seeing him finishing on the podium more often. I know there are plenty of people that don't care for him, but is he changing that with his obvious better attitude? And do you think his recent speed is this track only or will he continue to be strong?
