Red Bull KTM’s Kurt Caselli Finishes 5th at HavasuMonday, March 17, 2008 | 9:54 AM
Lake Havasu, AZ - Red Bull KTM's Kurt Caselli finished 5th at the third round of the WORCS Series in Lake Havasu, AZ.
Caselli's day went considerably better although it didn't start out as great as he would have hoped. Caselli started inside the top ten but a crash on the second lap put him back in 21st position. Once he remounted he tried to pick off riders but couldn't find his rhythm quick enough. "I wasn't comfortable until after the gas stop. After that halfway mark I finally got in my groove and was able to start moving forward," reported Caselli. His gas stop came approximately one hour into the race, at which point, he was able to pick up the pace and finally break back into the top ten. A few laps later on this quick 6 1/2 minute loop he had moved up to 7th. By the end of the race he passed two more riders to take home 5th for the day; an impressive finish for coming from so far back in the pack.
