BLAST FROM THE PAST

11HH3_ 066
Kurt Caselli gave the National Hare and Hound series a much needed shot of adrenalin. His presence in 2011 alone elevated the sagging series into National prominence. It as interesting that he resisted the series for years, since his Dad’s roots were married to the desert. Kurt had said that he preferred technical off-road and moto to high speed navigation. Later in his career he embraced this world and left a brand that will forever be etched into its history. Thanks to Mark Kariya for the pic.

PRESTON PETTY ELECTRIC BIKE INTERVIEW

I actually saw this on Facebook and started digging into finding the mag with the story. Zapata Espinoza wrote the piece for February 2014 issue of Electric Bike Action and it’s excellent. Preston Petty emerged when the dirt bike world was innocent and young and his genius came when filled a need for something…a plastic fender. Now he’s into Electric Bikes and turning  them into flatrackers…what a shocker! Enjoy.

Part of Cody’s training involved tires changes, a necessity to being a serious ISDE racer.

RIP DAN DAWSON

This week we lost a good one in Dan Dawson. He was an incredible rider, a great friend and a passionate father. He helped me test, he was a brilliant trail boss and really liked to go fast. His passing leaves a big hole in the lives that he touched. Godspeed my friend.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

wolfRMXfeed
This was the Mesquite Grand Prix, one of the toughest races that Casey Folks put into the Best in the Desert series. Blow sand, whoops that turned your arms into concrete and technical terrain that tested you physically was the norm. This was ’93 (maybe ’94) and it was a great event since rain had made the entire circuit much more fun. I raced with Dick Burleson (who was staying with me) and we both rode RMX Suzuki’s. Mine was well modified, a conventional Marzocchi fork, an RM250 cylinder, FMF piped and a Honda front wheel and brake. I’m pretty sure that I won the 40 class, and DB finished right behind me. And if that’s not the case…tough- because I needed to beat that sucker once in a while!
