Congrats on winning the stage today and moving solidly into the top ten. He'll win again before this is over. Just getting the hang of this type of racing.

Hare - Hound and sand

Enjoy the video riding along with Caselli at one of the Utah rounds for the 2012 Hare-Hound. BTW the goofball with Blue Hair is big Jonnny Jonson, a slacker running the over 50 B class. Jonny's a good guy, but goofy. Caselli is FAST riding in an area that is NOT his back yard.

Just watched the coverage from yesterday... Kurt seems like a genuinely nice guy... good to see him do well.

Looks like the neutralization of todays stage may have saved Kurt's ass after getting lost and coming in 57th place. Lucky boy to hold onto 11th overall.

Great to see our US rider doing well. But what happened today (stage 8)? The dakar web site shows Caselli dead last for the stage, with a 3:20:00 penalty??

First time he had to open a stage, navigating with no tracks to follow. There was a news blurb on dakar.com early in the stage that he went off track and "probably missed several waypoints".

The live tracker only showed him missing the first of three waypoints, but these are virtual waypoints in the public tracking. The roadbook has many more WPs and there are hard penalties for missing them.

Not sure if you have seen the interview on Spanish TV with Coma about Caselli:

http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/videos/d...01-13/1659910/

It's a great programme, but if your Spanish isn't up to it, FF to 29:30 ish.

What an opportunity; Coma's bike AND nav lessons from him.

Nice clip.

I think he finished 5th in todays Stage #10. Still down about #36 in general standings due to the earlier 3hr 20m penalty.

With some polished navigation skills it seems like KC could run with the big kids just fine, he is currently leading today's stage.
