Apparently Alessi crashed hard in the second practice and was carted off. He still held the fastest lap from the first practice but yeah. Hope he's okay and can be as close to 100% as possible for the race! UPDATE From Racer X Twitter "Word is that Alessi is out for today and will be back at Texas, his time will hold up as the fastest though." "According to KTM sources, mike Alessi may have a concussion, and he is out for the day." Edited May 21, 2011 by DeeO991 The update.
