Caselli Places 3rd at WORCS Round 7

Olympia, WA – Shock Doctor/KTM rider Kurt Caselli made a guest appearance at the seventh round of the WORCS series and showed he still has what it takes to run up front with a 3rd overall for the day.

Caselli, who has been focusing on the GNCC Series, made a return to WORCS and was glad he did so. “It felt really good to be back at the WORCS Series. I wasn’t sure where I would place but I am glad to see I was still able to ride a strong race and finish inside the top three,” commented Caselli.

Caselli began the race in 5th place off the start and stayed in that position the first lap. On the second lap, a large bottleneck occurred which delayed the race so badly that the promoter decided to restart all the riders and shorten the distance of the track. After the restart Caselli remained in 5th position for quite a while battling with his teammate, Mike Brown. Soon Caselli had worked his way up into 2nd position. He was moving in toward the leader when his chain derailed after hitting a large log. While his team was repairing the chain Ricky Dietrich was able to move by Caselli and take over 2nd position. Caselli eventually reentered the track in 3rd and finished on the podium.

His teammate, Brown, finished a solid 5th overall while the third member of the team, Justin Soule, finished right behind in 6th position. “I am happy with my overall result,” stated Soule. “I typically favor fast desert courses and struggle in the woods, so I am very happy that I was able to stay close to the top five in the woods today.”
