St. Louis, Missouri (March 29, 2014) – Tony Alessi let the cat out of the bag today in St. Louis, basically confirming rumors that Mike Alessi will be racing the Canadian outdoor series, at least for the first race.
According to Alessi, the entire Team SmartTop/MotoConcept team (Mike Alessi and Kyle Cunningham) will race the AMA Motocross opener at Glen Helen, and then regardless of their finish, the team will skip the following week’s round at Hangtown to contest the first round of the Canadian outdoor series in Nanaimo, in Western Canada.
“Glen Helen is Mike’s hometown race, that’s in our back yard, so we’re going to start the summer there, and then we’ll go to Canada and see how it goes,” said Tony Alessi. “After that, we’re going to evaluate our situation and see what’s best for the team and what’s best for the riders.”
Tony Alessi made it very clear that they were not “blocked” from the AMA series. “This is not like we are running away from the AMA series in any way,” Tony Alessi said. “We’re looking for new horizons, new choices, new options.”
