Mike Alesia Car Accident: What Happened to American Former Professional Motocross and Supercross Racer?
Mike Alesia Car Accident: Mike Alessi, sometimes known as “Mr. Holeshot”, is an American former professional Motocross and Supercross racer. He began riding motorcycles at the age of three and became a professional racer at age sixteen. However, his career has been characterized by both outstanding accomplishments and difficult events.
Early Career and Achievements
Alessi’s rise through the amateur ranks began at age six, when he won his first national championship at Loretta Lynn’s in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee. After ten years, Alessi had tied James Stewart Jr.’s all-time Amateur National championships with eleven. Ever since, his family has overshadowed his talent.
Professional Debut and Success
When Alessi first turned pro in 2004, he made an appearance in two races in the 250/450cc class. His first race was at Spring Creek Motocross Park in Millville, Minnesota. He failed to score any points and was 30th overall. Three weeks later, at Steel City Raceway in Delmont, Pennsylvania, Alessi proved that he could compete at the professional level when he scored a 3rd overall finish behind Ricky Carmichael and Kevin Windham in his second professional race.
