2008 SuperEnduro World Champion and Enduro living legend, David KNIGHT (GB) has to renounce to participate to the new SEWC season that will start next Saturday in the Atlas Arena in Lodz (Poland). So, there is a place available in the Grading List…
Indeed, after a really serious off-season, where many riders such as Taddy BLAZUSIAK (PL – KTM) said "he is fitter than ever”, "KNIGHTER” couldn't find any official team to participate to the Maxxis FIM SuperEnduro World Championship…
"I really tried everything to find a handlebar and to race SuperEnduro this season, but I couldn't find anything… Unfortunately, I have to forget about it!” confessed a very disappointed KNIGHT.
So, it will be, with the agreement of the FIM and ABC Communication, Spain's Dani GIBERT who will replace the Manxman in the Grading List. 8th last season, GIBERT, after two seasons with Gas Gas, has joined the Sherco Factory team during the season.
On a bike of the French brand, the Catalan clinched his first SuperEnduro Spanish title and seemed to be very confident with his 300 SEF-R.
Reversed order start specialist but often injured during the last two seasons, GIBERT will try to stay on the same level than for his National title in order to get back on a World Championship podium…
KNIGHT out – GIBERT in, the 2015/16 Grading List is still really competitive. It also celebrates the arrival of Sherco in this list, proof that the brand of Marc TEISSIER is really looking to make some noise in SuperEnduro with Dani GIBERT and also US Ironman Kevin ROOKSTOOL!
