This sad, terrible news put a damper on my day. Best wishes to his family and loves ones. I had hoped he'd be the first american to win Dakar.

Kurt was an extremely talented moto racer, a gentleman and an all around nice guy.
You will be missed my offroad brother.
Rest In Peace Kurt

Im totally stunned by this terrible news.

My condolences to family and friends. He seemed to be such a nice guy, so humble too.

A true great is no longer with us.

He may have hit an animal. I am sure that the cause of the accident will get cleared up soon enough......:(

Our community has suffered a great loss at the hands of a petty, piece of s%*t human being or group of human beings.

One theory I have is that someone or a group of people bet a large sum of money that the JCR Honda team would win and they weren't going to let Caselli and KTM take the victory. Another possibility is it was another race team that planted the trap. More than likely, though, it was just an f'd up asshole that set the trap for no reason whatsoever. Whoever it was needs to be tried for murder. However, as LSHD said, it's Mexico and nothing will happen.

So much potential. So much lost.

RIP Curt. You will be missed.
Ridiculous!

The team, who have now recovered Kurt's bike discovered traces on the machine that indicate he had collided with some small animal, which apparently caused the crash.

Taylor Robert was there:

Read Taylor's report & debunk of the booby trap crap.
Taylor is on Facebook, Instagram & twitter. Read the truth there - no more guessing or unfounded rumors.
Peace & respect - to Kurt, family & all the OffRoad race community.
Truly a sad Day!

What a tragic loss to the off road racing community. So much talent. And seemed like a super nice guy.

From Taylor Robert's FB page:

"I want to make something very clear and stop the rumors. Kurt Caselli did not crash because of a man made booby trap, a spectator, or any other nonsense that people are saying about his accident. My teammate Ricky Brabec was the fist person to Kurt which was in a very secluded area with no Spectators. Ivan Ramirez showed up shortly after Ricky. They decided Ricky would go get help while Ivan stayed with Kurt. Even though the news didn't come out until the night time the accident happened while there was still daylight, and didn't have anything to do with racing at night. This was merely a racing accident and had nothing to do with booby traps, spectators, or another vehicle so please stop spreading rumors."
