Dirt Bike Magazine Releases 25 Best Off-Road Riders: The Caselli Cup

Friday, January 23, 2015 | 11:05 AM

Dirt Bike Magazine recently released their annual ranking of the top 25 off-road riders in America, which comes in the form of an award named after Kurt Caselli. While it's admittedly tough to mesh all forms of off-road into one, Dirt Bike captures the essence by saying this:

"It takes a special kind of person to excel as an off-road racer in America, with mental and physical toughness that go off the chart. Kurt Caselli embodied that spirit. He was tough, passionate and dedicated. That’s why the top rider in Dirt Bike’s annual ranking of off-road racers is the recipient of an award named for Kurt."

Each year they present the Caselli Cup to the best of the best, using results from races all over the country, while also factoring in "each rider’s prospects for success in the year ahead.” This includes GNCC, WORCS, National Enduro, Hare & Hound, OMA, Best in the Desert, SCORE and EnduroCross. 

We are very pleased to see so many GNCC racers on the list, not to mention one of our very own taking the top spot as Factory FMF/KTM’s Kailub Russell was awarded with yet another accolade in 2014 - the Caselli Cup. 

Check out the entire list of America’s 25 Best Off-Road Racers, via Dirt Bike Magazine’s website.
