What a huge and terrible loss for the motorcycling world.

It is now being reported that the booby trap claims are not accurate.

Sad news abd my condolences to his family, but racing is a dangerous sport and blaming someone (a Country) for KC death without knowing the real story
is irresponsible

I don't care what they come up with as to what happened. Mexico is still a real POS. I don't get it we will send our guys around the world to kill bad guys but when they are right next door we look the other way. Fuck them all. Kurt , you will be missed.

There is always more to the story in Mexico, there is nuance upon nuance, rumor upon rumor. Stories take on a life of their own so it is always best to wait a bit and let the truth settle out.

Latest report from the riders who stopped for Caselli is that there was no booby-trap or any such thing. Apparently Kurt struck an animal from what was seen on his bike. Very sad.

Always tragic when a young stud like Caselli dies in his prime doing something as cool as racing Baja. Condolences to his family!

Sounds fairly unanimous that is was not a booby trap. BTW, most of those booby traps are just building up the lip on a jump or some such thing, so the spectators in the area get a little more show. Never meant to harm anyone and have been part of the deal for decades.

Surprisingly, I haven't heard a retraction or apology to the "Third World Assholes" yet? I'm sure one will be coming later today. It's easy to spew that racist BS online but a lot harder to go down to Mexico, walk up to a Mexican and call them a Third World Asshole to their face. Do that, Luv2race and let us know how it works out for you.

You "First World Assholes" in California are so advanced that wont even allow a race like Baja to take place in your state. You should more grateful to the Mexicans.

This is the time to reflect on the life and career of Kurt Caselli, a truly great rider and an exceptional man. He will not be forgotten.

Just returned from my first longer trip in Mexico. Six weeks and visited as much of colonial MX as possible before heading to the Pacific Coast.

Awesome visit…great people, food, and scenery. Favorites included Creel, Zacatecas, Guanajuato, Morelia, and Zipolite.

Lots of road damage due to storms, especially in the south, but in general, a hassle-free ride.

Uh-oh

Now you've caught the Mexican version of Bieber Fever

Be prepared henceforth to address the expected cyclical "fix" you'll have to score that's only available by riding south of the border.

You know the rules. Where are the pics?

Isn't Zipolite on everyone's list of favorite places?
