What Caselli Said!

Cycle News Staff | January 11, 2013

Here’s what Red Bull KTM’s Kurt Caselli said after winning today’s seventh stage of the Dakar Rally…

“It’s good, I mean, today was easy. It was just roads, there was no off-track or anything – pretty easy to follow. Ruben [Faria] and I had to stop a little bit for Cyril [Despres]. I don’t know why, he had some problems with something. I waited for him, but he told me to keep going, so we’ve come here and hopefully we can figure it out tonight for the marathon stage. Everything for me was fine. I’m learning the navigation better and I can understand it. This is my first Dakar so I’m just learning a lot. I didn’t have any idea what to expect when I first came here. It’s fun and I’m enjoying it. The race is great and the people are too. I’m having a good time.”
