Wow how terrible. Kurt always seemed to be a super nice guy. He was surely one heck of a rider. RIP

This is really unfortunate. What's with the "booby trap" explanation though? I'm assuming the Baja 1000 doesn't really have booby traps as part of the race...

Okay, found some more info here:
http://jalopnik.com/racer-kurt-casel...100-1465736031

"early reports are that he was killed when he hit some sort of man-made booby trap set by locals along the course."

"Details are still emerging, but booby traps are not uncommon to the Baja. Locals dig holes or build ramps or build obstacles not always with the intent to injure, but sometimes with the intent to create an opportunity for entertainment. They're often haphazardly built, and with a complete disregard for safety."

That's just a horrible thing to do...

Holopaw Ural Gathering today in FL. 40+ Urals. Not many folks under 35. And very few broads. But the valve chatter was deafening. My ural stayed at home :( I was just in town for work.

Three cylinder turbo diesel ural with radiator.

KTM just released the official report, stating that he hit an animal and not a booby-trap.

Just to clarify since I hate rumors as much as the next guy. My earlier report was wrong, it was what I had read on some desert racing site. Kurt Caselli's crash was just a crash and not caused by a booby trap. Taylor Roberts another racer who was on the Kawi team that actually had a rider stop with Kurt, released a statement yesterday about it and only thing they could deduct was he might of hit a small animal.
