The motorcycling community is still morning the loss of American off-road racer Kurt Caselli, who tragically died while competing in the 2013 SCORE Baja 1000.

A beloved competitor, and rising star in the rally racing world, Kurt’s absence is felt by many, but during our time of mourning we also remember the light that he was as a person.

Paying tribute to him, KTM has put together a thoughtful video that remembers Kurt, as told by the people who knew him best at KTM. It’s cool if you cry a little. We did.

Additionally, the Caselli family has invited all family, friends, and fans of Kurt to attend his Memorial Ride Day on December 6, 2013 at Glen Helen Raceway from 10:00am to 3:00pm.

The Caselli family is also grateful for any letters that people would like to send about how Kurt has touched their life. KTM will be collecting all letters for the family at the KTM office, or you can send them to the following address:
