Makita Suzuki US factory star Mike Alessi has confirmed that he will ride in the SX1 class at the NEC in the opening round of this year's Future West ACU British Supercross Championship on November 28th.
Mike who was to have competed in last year's BSX opener at Sheffield before an injury ended his season, said: "I was really disappointed not to make it to the UK last year, that injury took me out of action for some time, I can't wait to be racing back in England, especially on the big track that is planned for Birmingham."
Alessi has shown that he is one of the fastest riders in the States by leading in the US outdoor premier class points battle earlier this year before another injury finished his hopes at what looked like a legitimate shot at the US premier class title.
Alessi will be competing at Birmingham against a star-studded line-up including fellow American and defending British SX1 Champ Mike Brown, British Open class champ Carl Nunn will also be back to defend his British Open title.
Last year Nunn and Gordon Crockard thrilled the crowds when they battled down to the wire throughout the four round action packed championship, the duo tangled in the final race at London's O2 Arena with Nunn coming out on top to capture his second BSX title.
