I noticed nobody is talkin about Alessi not returning to Suzuki next year. Eventhough he has been riding and is ready to return, Suzuki has asked him to not return fro the rest of the season and continue to rest. Goose has already been assigned to be Reed's mechanic from here on out and Alessi is not happy at all with the situation. Word is that Alessi now wants out of the contract and Mikey and Jeff may very well be back on KTM450s next year. That or he may go accross the pond for a world title since he loves outdoors and doesnt really wanna race SX.
