Motocross Team ThumperTalk Casell Challenge Team Riders Announced!

Recommended Posts

post-3-0-96562000-1448377919.png

 
 A week ago we put out a request to the ThumperTalk community looking for four riders (two teams of two) to represent the ThumperTalk community at the 3rd annual Kurt Caselli Foundation Ride Day at Glen Helen Raceway on December 4th.
 
New for this year is the Caselli Team Challenge where two riders will pair up and participant in an 8-lap race. The riders will need to use only one bike and switch off each lap. There can only be one pro rider on each team. The start will take place Lemans style with one boot from each of the starting riders in a pile in front of the start line. Riders will run to their boot first and then back to their bike before taking off on the first lap.
 
We had over a dozen teams volunteer to ride on behalf of the community, but unfortunately we could only pick two teams. So, thanks to all of you who tossed your hat into the ring! We wish that there was an opportunity for all of you to race w/ us! Only 30 team slots were available and the folks at FMF Racing & the Caselli Foundation were kind enough to reserve two for us. Thanks Donny Emler Jr & Quinn Cody!

 So, who's repping for the ThumperTalk community?

Carson and I are very excited to represent the young guns on the 4 strokes!! This is going to be a blast representing the Thumpertalk community at this historic event. We really hope to bring as many donations as we can to this amazing event and the Kurt Caselli Foundation!! We remember Kurt at the National Hare and Hound events, socializing with anyone and everyone in the pits.  In my racing following the passing of Kurt, I have noticed the Kurt Caselli Foundation out at the NHHA races keeping the courses marked consistently and helping improve the safety of our amazing sport. Through course prerunners to bright orange vests for the minis, they are out making a difference every weekend.  We will keep you guys posted on the adventure that leads up to the race!!  

 

If you can donate, please do, because the Thumpertalk community support will help maintain the riding and racing we all enjoy.

James Rhodes, Team #241

Well, our cell coverage at the race is terrible and has gotten worse as more people show up! So, not sure how much we're going to be able to share live at the event. We'll do our best!

Thanks! Wish I was there :cry:
