Wow, how the off-road world of ISDE racing has changed. Winning the overall Trophy team win in Spain was the culmination of efforts via Malcolm Smith, John Penton and Dick Burleson in the 70’s, Larry Roeseler in the 80’s and 90s and Rich Caselli and his son Kurt in the 2000s. We’ve been tapping at the door for years and led by Taylor Robert who won the overall and shadowed by teammates Kailub Russell (KTM), Thad Duvall – Husqvarna and eleventh hour replacement rider Layne Michael. Michael’s accomplishment was incredible, easpecially since he was not originally on the team. Last years ISDE overall winner Ryan Sipes was injured in a pre-race accident, ending his quest to defend his 2015 overall win. Coastal Racing/Rockstar/Husqvarna teammate Layne Michael had less than 24-hour’s noticewhen he boarded a plane to Spain. As the week went on Michael’s results kept improving making him crucial to the winning U.S. effort.
Team USA dominated an event that has been owned by the European teams from Sweden, Italy, France, Finland, Germany (both east and west) and Czechoslovakia … for decades. Congrats boys!
Malcolm Smith, Dick Burleson, Larry Roeseler, the U.S Trophy Team from 1982 and Kurt Caselli have all played a major role in Team USA’s overall win.
