After the prayer, at the beginning of the Kurt Caselli Parade lap.

I just got home from the motorcycle show in Long Beach. I ran into a woman wearing a Caselli shirt. I stopped and talked to her for a minute. She said she is with FMF, told me a bit about the event today.

For those interested: I asked her about funeral plans, if it had happened already, etc. She said that it had happened but, the family wanted to keep it to immediate family and friends and only the closest of industry people. I told her I fully understood but, also thought that a large turnout for a funeral was sort of important for the family so they would know how many people mourned his loss.

She said of the "closest family and friends," there were probably 500 people at the funeral. Outstanding! (if you can use a word like that describing a funeral)

RIP Bean Canyon Bomber

I asked Kurt's Dad once why he didn't race AMA motocross. He said no sand washes. My two childhood hometowns lose two of their best and brightest, Kurt from Lancaster, and Paul Walker from Glendale. See you fellow travelers in the new day, when the darkness that covers the Earth like a blanket is but a mirage.

Another Memorial

Mr Hotey,

There was a neat steel statue thing at GHR that will be erected near the memorial for Kurt's dad. I have no idea when but I reckon there will be posts when it's ready to be visited.

I hope that helps.

The GHR Memorial ride was like nothing I've ever seen. The track was full from from side to side and from the start all the way to the finish with riders. The first turn was so packed guys were falling over. The fiance gave an incredible speech and there were guys breaking down all over from her words.

Really glad I went and there are many vids out there now showing it all.

Lots of great detail here. A very well written article. It still doesn't make it any easier.

That's an excellent article. I hadn't seen such detail before. Long, but very well written and worth the read.

I didn't realize it took as long as it did to find him and get help, and that he was still alive when the first person (who didn't have a way, or knew of a way, to contact emergency services on the spot.) found him.

Apparently there are additional safety changes being out in place for future events.
