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

As an American expatriate living in Dakar country (Peru), I was so appreciative that Kurt was our Ambassador for this event. He truly had an unassuming way with all that talent!

RIP

My god, I'm absolutely floored by this news. So devastating for Kurt and his family. Sadly just before bed, I read an Instagram comment string where someone mentioned how hard it must be to be a parent of one of the competitors and (I believe it was) Kurt's mom chimed in about just having to trust that your child has the talent and skill to pull things through safely to the end. It was a general comment before any of this happened. Gutted.

I would see Kurt every year at the KTM Dealer Meeting and he always remembered me and was glad to see me. What a great guy and a gentleman. He is going to be terribly missed by the motorcycling community.
This is a tough pill to swallow. RIP Kurt Caselli.

Guess you know who your friends are when most of your FB feed is about Kurt.

Vaya con Dios, you were a good one.

As a parent, I can't imagine surviving your child. Hope that his folks can find a way through.

Off Road bike racing just lost its greatest, and he still had more on tap.

You'll be missed Kurt.

Just saw this news posted on PYNDON's FB page. Devistating news to hear about the loss of any rider doing what he or she loves.

Ride on Kurt in a better place.
