ISDE Junior Trophy Team Fundraiser at AV Motoplex

Jean Turner | October 2, 2006

Join the ISDE Junior Trophy Team for a ride day fundraiser this weekend at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster, California. Team USA riders Kurt Caselli, David Pearson and Ricky Dietrich will be hosting a track day from 3pm until sunset at AV Motoplex on Sunday, October 8th. Normal business hours for the track are 8am until 2pm, and the track will then re-open at 3pm for the fundraiser.

“It’s pretty much just a fun open ride day,” Kurt Caselli, member of the Junior Trophy Team and former ISDE Top American said. “We’re going to have a barbecue and a raffle, we’ll have Junior Trophy Team t-shirts and prizes available and most of those proceeds will go to the team.”

The four-member US Junior Trophy Team, bound for Lake Taupo, New Zealand this November for the 81st International Maxxis FIM Six Days Enduro, is comprised of Caselli, his KTM teammate David Pearson, current World Off Road Championship Series points leader Ricky Dietrich and recently crowned AMA National Enduro Champion Russell Bobbitt.

“Myself, David Pearson and Ricky Dietrich will be there,” Caselli said of the track day fundraiser. “Russell Bobbitt is back east and couldn’t make it out, but three out of the four guys will be there; it’ll be a fun ride day.”

Show your support for Team USA and join them for an afternoon at the track this Sunday at AV Motoplex in Lancaster, California. For track info, visit
