Caselli continues win streak taking the victory in Johnson Valley
April 29, 2013
The following is an industry press release...
Johnson Valley, CA – Factory FMF/KTM rider Kurt Caselli claimed his third straight victory of the season at the fifth round of the AMA National Hare & Hound Series to further strengthen his points lead. The day was even more exciting for the Factory FMF/KTM Team as Caselli’s teammate, Ivan Ramirez, joined him on the podium in the runner-up position.
Caselli took the lead as the riders neared the end of the bomb run followed closely by Ramirez. The two remained close on the first loop and were able to put a good gap on the rest of the pack. By the second loop Caselli had stretched his lead on Ramirez to just over two minutes.
On the third and final loop, the riders were given more rocky terrain which allowed Caselli to further increase his lead on Ramirez to take the win by nearly five minutes. Ramirez crossed the finish line in 2nd position, over 8 minutes ahead of the 3rd place ride of Nick Burson.
“I was able to get out front early today so I never had to deal with the dust,” commented Caselli. “I am happy to continue my win streak here and I am looking forward to the sixth round next weekend in Utah. I hope that my teammate, Ivan, can also join me on the podium there.”
Next Event: Jericho, UT – May 4, 2013
