The Kurt Caselli Foundation was established after the untimely death of celebrated off-road racer Kurt Caselli during the Baja 1000 in 2013. The foundation is committed to reducing the risks faced by motorcycle racers through the education of both riders and race organizers about the inherent dangers of the sport and the best ways to manage those risks. By creating a new standard of safety for racers at all stages of their careers, the foundation aims to give racers the tools to protect themselves and their families.
