The latest pro athlete to choose Forcefield Body Armour, Kurt Caselli, wins the gruelling Desafio Ruta 40 Rally in Argentina in his first race wearing the award winning Forcefield Pro Shirt.

Caselli started Saturday’s final stage in third place overall but put in a huge effort to win the final stage taking overall victory in what was only his second international rally since making his debut in the Dakar Rally at the end of last year.

After more than 18 hours of racing, Caselli beat his teammate Chaleco Lopez by just 43 seconds as well as Rally legend and World Championship leader Marc Coma who finished third overall.

Caselli is a relatively new recruit to the KTM Factory Rally Team but is a very experienced off-road and Baja competitor for KTM USA. He was drafted in to the Dakar 2013 team when it became clear that title defender Marc Coma was unable to ride because of a lingering injury. His performance in the Desafio Ruta 40 Rally in what has been at times trying conditions underlined he has the skills and the speed to match the world’s best.
