Kurt Caselli Foundation Announces Official Website kurt caselli foundation 635x423

The Kurt Caselli Foundation, an organization dedicated to the safety of off-road riders, has announced the release of their official website. The foundation was established in 2013 after the death of Motocross legend Kurt Caselli during the 2013 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000.

The foundations website states that their goal is to emphasize safety in a three-part mission:

  1. Before racing, we are committed to encouraging, developing, and standardizing safety precautions that will help minimize risk outside of the rider’s control
  2. During racing, we are committed to developing, establishing, and encouraging the use of safety equipment and policies to increase the safety of the riders
  3. After racing, we are committed to providing a safety net that allows and encourages former racers to further their education and reach career goals for themselves and their families

Kurt Caselli was a world-class motorcycle racer who first slung his leg over a motorcycle at a young age in the deserts of Southern California, riding next to his father. He quickly established himself as one of the world’s premier off-road riders, taking his first victory in the Mini Enduro K1 in 1997.

During the course of his career, Kurt would go on to win nineteen District 37 Championships, four National AMA Hare & Hound Championships, and three WORCS Championships, which are really only a fraction of his accomplishments.

The foundation seeks to not only keep Kurt’s legacy alive, but to try and prevent this sort of tragedy from recurring. To make a donation or for more information, visit the Kurt Caselli Foundation’s website.

    I am going to be unpopular for saying this….
    I don’t agree with increasing the regulations. There is risk in racing. Tragedies happen.
    There is personal choice and personal risk in all types of riding. It is for the individual to assess and ride/wear appropriately. The death was caused by hitting a animal on an open section of track. Kurt was wearing helmet, neck brace and everything else that is considered the highest level of safety.

    Unnecessary risks should already be controlled, as best possible… because there is death in a dangerous sport, that does not mean that additional levels of controls are instantly needed.

    If the end result is additional MANDATORY safety wear or ‘softening’ of events then we are defeating the risks and challenges that make racing/riding exciting.
