Marc Coma Dedicates 2014 Dakar Win To Kurt

At the conclusion of the Moroccan rally last November. One has to wonder what Kurt could have accomplished at this years Dakar.

Likely would've won, just as he would've certainly won in Baja. KTM will never be able to replace him. He was destined for great things.

Coma

I just saw the coverage of the last stage in the 2014 Dakar. Marc Coma won and at the finish line he waited for all the cameras to arrive, put hist fists in the air and pointed at the sticker on his fairing: Caselli 66. So the world would know. Beautiful.

As the commentator explained, the #2 spot was for Jordi Viladoms, on the bike that was reserved for Kurt. Viladoms was planning on participating on a Gas Gas.

Congrats, Marc & Jordi. Godspeed, Kurt.

It was a very emotional moment at the Dakar 2014 finish for Marc Coma and the whole KTM team.
Marc was in tears talking in Spanish about how he had Kurt in his mind many times in the race and how Kurt helped in the race. We was riding with Kurt and they won it for Kurt.



At on the podium, an emotional moment for the team

I saw that too, very emotional Dakar for sure. They were clearly good friends, given how Marc gets along with everyone...and helps other riders with riding tips. He was helping Kurt last year with riding and navigation tips from the sidelines.
Even though the community lost someone like Kurt...Everyone celebrates who he was, his life and love for the sport. and even in loss, we got to thank the big guy upstairs.

Coma seems like a really cool guy. He is even more my hero than before
