    Terrible news. I was really looking forward to his Dakar race this year. He was a great rider and a all around nice guy.

    Such bad news. I watched him race at the Idaho ISDE qualifier several times, he was a special talent.

    Unfortunately this is Mexico and nothing will happen.

    I refuse to set foot in that 3rd world shit hole and this just reinforces my beliefs.

    Godspeed buddy..

    Super sad.

    So much potential. So much lost.

    RIP Curt. You will be missed.

    Kurt was like a superhero. Seeing him show up at District races I think made everyone else feel cooler especially after his incredible showing at Dakar last year.....

    Im totally devastated. I have no words at the moment. He was one of those guys that you think about while you're racing - be fast like Kurt, or what if Kurt was chasing me down - to try and be faster

    Kurt was one of the riders on this planet that was able to raise the bar of what is possible on a motorcycle. He will be sorely missed.

    I was watching the race and stepped away for dinner after seeing Team Honda finish 1st, physically. Couldn't figure out why Team KTM wasn't coming in. Didn't log on till this morning. WTF!
    We will miss Kurt for a long time just like his fallen comrades. The sport has lost a "great" one.
    My sincere condolences to his family, friends and employer. Godspeed Kurt. :(:

    Some news sources are still alleging the story about “booby-trap“.
    Has this been confirmed or dismissed?

    If anything like that happened than there is a criminal liability by someone and will be officially investigated.


    What a fucking waste ... :cry

    Who cares about liability... It would be terrible for the race and the sport as a whole!

    If it WAS a booby trap, as my friend said this morning "they moved Dakar because it was unsafe, they can move Baja."

    RIP Kurt, an immense talent and profile on the US off road, cross country and desert racing sceneand of recent the international rallye stage.

    This has some big implications.

    Don't know what to say, was really looking forward to see him do great in the upcoming Dakar.

    RIP Kurt
