Everyone should read this!

http://xgames.espn.go.com/rally-moto...elli-last-ride

Most complete write up I've read to date and is the strongest testament I've read for having your SPoT on you person - not on your bike!

RIP #66

Kurt Caselli Article

This probably isn't the right place to post this, but since so many here are off-road riders it should be of interest. Mods, feel free to move it.

I'm not a big fan of ESPN, but every once in a while they surprise me. Shocking enough that they cover anything moto related, but they did an excellent job on this article about death of Caselli in the Baja 1000.

RIP KC

Caught a bit of this on ESPN last night. It replays on ABC from 4-5 PM Saturday 12/28.

WORLD OF X GAMES

2013 Baha race. Follows mostly the trophy trucks, but has some mc content, including a bit on Caselli.

They spelled his name wrong...

ABC ends the show as a tribute to KC and then spells his name wrong? That is real sincerity there...

If you think about it, that isn't surprising given the jive turkey host and the .0001 seconds they showed of moto coverage.

I'm kind of surprised this past weekend's Supercross broadcast didn't mention KC though (unless I missed it).

Eurosport Dakar coverage mentioned KC and showed the KTM team's memorial stickers on KTM riders' bikes.

Thanks to those of you that posted the link to the article. Even though it bummed me out all over again. It's sad to know he was alive for so long after the crash.

RIP KC66

I know that this may have already been mentioned here or on another thread or other site but didn't Kurt race some Motocross(not supercross) before he found his niche in off road? And I don't mean when he was a kid I mean AMA national 250 or 450 pro? I was thinking an thought I remember him racing a few rounds/maybe season or two....

Sounds familiar

Same for Robby Bell I think. Both at motocross ambitions originally as I recall.
