We last talked to David KNIGHTon the evening before the EWC Finale in France… he was disappointed at the end of a difficult season... but as usual, he hadn’t given in! The famous Isle of Man giant already had a new project in his mind, with long-time friend and multiple Enduro World Champion Paul EDMONDSON!
Less than a month later, David KNIGHTannounced via his own Twitter account that he would be riding for his own new private team, managed by EDMONDSONon Honda CRF450’s. The Isle of Man rider also confirmed that he would be competing in the E2 class of the Maxxis FIM Enduro World Championship, riding at the X-Games in the USA and also competing in the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship!
‘KNIGHTER’ will be present at the Atlas Arena in Lodz(Poland) for the opening round of the championship on Saturday December 8th.
It seems that the very first SuperEnduro Champion (2008) is still hungry for victory and that he wants to challenge Taddy BLAZUSIAK who has dominated the series for the past 3 seasons…
‘KNIGHTER’ said “I know Taddy BLAZUSIAKwill be fast. He’s just won the AMA EnduroCross series in the USA and is feeling race sharp. To beat him is a tall order but this is SuperEnduro and anything can happen – mistakes are common! Realistically, I’m just going there to have fun and learn more about my new bike.”
Now on a Honda CRF450, a bike which ‘KNIGHTER’ said “…I already feel very comfortable with”, the Manxmen must be considered a championship favourite and should be a serious rival for BLAZUSIAKon his home ground in Poland…
Their first confrontation is at the Atlas Arena in Lodz(Poland) on December 8th – Don’t miss it!
