Red Bull KTM’s Kurt Caselli Wins WORCS Round 1Monday, January 21, 2008 | 10:01 AM
Phoenix, AZ - Red Bull KTM's Kurt Caselli started out the season well with a race win at Round 1 of the World Off-Road Championship Series.
At the mid-point of the race Caselli was on the gas catching the leaders. He quickly moved into fourth, third and then second place. Meanwhile, Soulè was on the motocross portion of the course nearing the triple. He came up short and cased the jump dislocating his ankle in the process. He pulled over and put his ankle back in place. This incident caused him to fall back to 19th position. Nonetheless, he fought through the pain and charged forward to finish 15th overall.
The next WORCS round will be in Mesquite, NV February 15-17, 2008.
