Great stuff.

Any idea how his mom is doing? Was he married? Kids? I didn't know much about his personal life but, I hope they are getting the support they need.

way sad..

While is super sad and Kurt was way to young to die, you can say also that he lived life full throttle and was living the dream. Kurt could ride....so fluid and natural. Pure talent.

I remember that quote he had in Moto 4 where he said you should live your life where one thing scares you everyday. Thats walking the line..

No doubt to go at 30 sucks, but he was truly living.

RIP Kurt. I've felt this sadness before. Reminded me of Danny Hamel. Prayers and condolences to his family and friends.

Very sad news indeed. Kurt was one of a small bunch that could end up on the top of the Dakar leaderboard one day. A big loss for the rally world and a devastating loss for those near him. Let's channel our thoughts and prayers to them...

Pretty cool video featuring Kurt Caselli...

There is a very prophetic comment he makes in this video.

I know that it is still early, but after watching several videos, I realized Kurt did not wear a neck brace. Contributing factor? Time will tell. So sad.

Just finished a bottle of good vino in honor of Kurt.. I feel a little better now..
Thanks Kurt for ripping it like no one else could. I'll miss you, I'll miss watching the bike dance beneath you, and I'll really miss that damn friendly smile..

RIP Kurt!!

I just got back from the 1000. It was a hard course. Just very sad to hear the news of a rider down.

I was reading up about him while I watched the race tracking. Kurt had a fiance, Sarah. No kids that I am aware of.

I will always regret not being able to meet him. He was 30 feet away at bike tech on Wednesday.. that dude always had a smile

Here is some raw footage from a race earlier this year. The dude flat out hauled ass and was one of the best ever...

Kurt Caselli - Raw Files - Helmet Cam POV - Round 5 2013 NHHA Series from Beau Cottington on Vimeo.




a touching tribute
