I know many of you have heard, but for those who have not, Kurt Casselli of team KTM crashed and died from head injuries at the Baja 1000 yesterday. He was leading the event overall and lost control of his bike at about 770 miles of the 880 mile race. It is rumored, tho not confirmed, that he hit a boobie trap set up by the locals. He races and was the overall hare and hound champion for three years running and was moving on to rally racing next year. Great guy to talk to when the chance was there. He was especially good with the young racers. he will be missed
Allen Gerber- Great trip to Wendover. Just me and the Wifee. She was awesome and let me explore all day today. Thanks Tor!! Found some great new washes and roads that will be a great addition for the race in May. Just the two of us so we had to keep the speeds and exploring to a minimum so we didn't break down and have to post this from the desert somewhere!!For those of you that raced a month ago, the south loop will be roughly 30% brand new and 80% has not been run in several years. North loop? Had a hard time finding tracks. Sometimes I just had to look behind me... Maybe 35-45% new!! Going out again in three or four weeks depending on the weather. Could use hep!! And Spanky, We missed you. Hope you can come out sometime.
