From Barcelona, my respect and admiration.

Kurt Caselli was a rush of fresh air for all. Cheered for him since day one last year when I first heard his name.

:(

Sad sad news

RIP, A fresh smile, new american spirit for the Dakar.

Prayers and thoughts for his family and friends.

Quite a few from the rally fraternity up there now. I am sure Ivan will show him around.

A truly sad event, feeling quite sick inside at the moment as the dangers are brought home and especially happening to one of the best in the world - RIP Kurt.

Oh, no!
Just thought to check and see what was new in the Bivouac and . . . . this.
Devastated.
Sincerest condolences to family and friends.
RIP Kurt.

RIP Mr. Caselli

Full respect for a life well lived.
You will find me planted firmly in this camp.
RIP, dude was a straight animal. Respect.

I was napping and opened up Facebook, first post I see is from a friend about this...scroll down, almost every post was about Kurt's passing. I had to re-read several times to make sure I was reading it right.

Truly sad, RIP Kurt.

I was looking forward to some good riding and a couple of stage wins by Kurt in Jan.

Will miss his riding. R.I.P hope his family and friends have the strength to keep going.
