American Kurt Caselli Leading ISDE Overall

After four days of racing at this year's International Six Days Enduro in La Serena, Chile, American Kurt Caselli is leading the race overall -- and no American has ever won the race overall before. Kurt holds a 29.59 second lead over France's Johnny Aubert (you may remember him from his motocross days in the States) in the unofficial overall rankings. Kurt's been out front all week, except for a momentary charge from former GNCC Champion Juha Salminen, who briefly took the overall lead only to crash in a special test and drop back to third overall. However, Salminen's Finnish team leads the World Trophy Team Standings, like they do seemingly every year. The U.S. Team, led by Caselli, is in 10th.

This year's ISDE is the first to feature a Women's Cup division, for three-rider female teams. The U.S. Squad is way out in front in that race, with Amanda Mastin, Nicole Bradford and Lacy Jones out front by about 30 minutes.

There was a big scare yesterday when a massive earthquake hit Chile and registered a whopping 7.7 on the scale, but the quake too far from the race to have an impact on it.
