Kurt Caselli Tribute

When accomplished off-road and desert racer Kurt Caselli passed following a crash during the SCORE Baja 1000, the motorcycling community was quick to respond with memorials and tributes.

The latest arrives from the brand that the American Caselli was closely united with – KTM. Now, KTM Sportmotorcycle AG and KTM Racing are asking those close to Caselli to share their personal stories, anecdotes, tributes and photos to honor the fallen rider.

KTM reports that “this compendium of memories of Kurt is for the Caselli family and it is hoped that the collection will be a worthy tribute to someone very special who will be very sadly missed throughout the international racing community.”

Caselli was admired throughout the racing community, and was a huge role model for younger racers. KTM says it perfectly – “he is and will always be remembered as a champion on the bike, and in life.”

KTM and the Caselli family would appreciate receiving all contributions ahead of Jan. 30, 2014. The contributions may be sent to the following addresses:
