News Capsule: Mike Alessi and the brain trust behind him have made one of the stupidest moves in motocross history. By eschewing the AMA Nationals to run away and hide in the Great White North,  they have set themselves up for failure. In truth, even success in Canada will still be considered failure. Because Mike has no chance of getting a big-time ride in the USA, regardless of how well he does (because of a minor issues of burned bridges), his mentors decided to take the underground railroad to Canada—where he wouldn’t be subject to the derision and scrutiny that comes with his checkered past in the United States. But, it is a meaningless excursion. Yes, Mike will win the 2014 Canadian Championship…and then what? Mexico? Columbia? Turkey?

The decision to become a B-squad team even though you have an A-squad rider is something that will baffle those who have never followed the Alessi clan—but not those that have.
