2017 Season Recap:

With factory support from Honda for the 2017 season, Alessi had the chance to chase his best season in recent memory. From the start, Alessi showed he had the speed to contend alongside the supercross elite but crashed at the opening round and sat out until round 4 in Phoenix. Eventually, Alessi was able to capture two top 10s but an injury at round 13 in St. Louis forced him to the sidelines for the remainder of the season and an overall 19th place finish.
