    This bit is scary,

    Information regarding the incident is still somewhat vague, but it’s been widely reported that the factory-backed KTM rider hit a man-made “booby trap”

    This is sad news.:cry

    From http://www.moto.it/sport/kurt-caselli-muore-alla-baja-1000.html
    "Mexican public often creates artificial obstacles (bumps, potholes and other nonsense) to embarrass the pilots and take them back to video. The organization makes in fact warned the contestants and asks them to pay close attention when, in the middle of the desert, are isolated groups of viewers. They could be there to take the effects of their trap."

    A real shame and loss to the community. Glad it wasn't a booby trap.
