MXA is all about motocross, but we can’t help but admire motorcycle racers of all kinds ? especially if we like them. So, it is with great pride that we report that Kurt Caselli won the 220 kilometer special test as a fill-in rider for Marc Coma, who was injured before the Dakar started. Caselli averaged 117kmh and was the first newcomer to win a stage since 2006. Sadly, French rider Thomas Bourgin lost his life in a traffic accident in Chile during a liaison section of the stage.
