Kellon crashed in a very remote area of the San Felipe course and had to wait 5 hours for the ambulance to arrive. Unfortunately, recent storms in Southern California and Mexico ruled out any chance for an air evacuation. After stabilizing the fracture, Kellon was driven to the border at Calexico where a waiting ambulance picked him up and took him to the nearest U.S. hospital in El Centro, California. Doctors at El Centro Regional Medical Center conducted further tests and determined Kellon had sustained a fracture of the left femur. He was scheduled to be airlifted to his hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada where surgery would be performed under the guidance of U.S Dakar Team Doctor, Johnathan Edwards.”Kellon’s a tough kid,” said Scot Harden, “he went through quite an ordeal getting out of the desert. He’s in good spirits and in good hands now. I’m sure he’ll make a full recovery. KTM and the entire Dakar team are wishing Kellon all the best.”Red Bull KTM’s Chris Blais and Andy Grider still plan to compete in the San Felipe 250 as a two man team.
