David Knight Dominates Round Three of the European Enduro Championship - News - Dirt Rider Magazine

D3-Racing/KTM Enduro Factory Team Farioli rider David Knight claimed two comfortable day wins at the Husqvarna Hafren Forest Enduro, round three of the European Enduro Championship, held in Mid Wales this past weekend. Despite competing as a 'no points scorer' due to past world championship placings, Knighter decided to compete in the event in preparation for the upcoming sixth round of the WEC series, which takes place in the south of France on July 23-14.Winning every test outright on day one, not even a fall on the first corner of the first test of day two could stop Knighter from winning as he remounted to post the test's fastest time and go on to finish the day undefeated. Topping day one by 35 seconds, David then upped his pace around the rougher special tests on day two and extended his winning margin to 42 seconds, even finding time for a few motorcycle acrobatics en route to his day two win.Competing alongside David in the D3-Racing KTM team and taking part in his first EEC event was US rider Kurt Caselli. Finishing a distant third in the International class on day one as well as in fourth in the Overall results, Caselli then performed better in the dry and dusty conditions of day two and placed as runner-up in both the International class and the Overall results.David Knight: "It's been a great couple of days, I'm pleased that I decided to enter the event because the dry conditions were excellent practice for the sixth round of the World Enduro Championship in France this coming weekend. It was nice to compete in an international event without too much pressure."Everything went pretty much as I hoped it would and on day one and winning by 35 seconds from Edmondson and then 42 seconds from Caselli was great. I only made one mistake during the event and that was on the first test on the second day. I clipped a post on the inside of the turn and it jammed by front brake on. Apart from that I didn't make any mistakes, rode pretty well and had some fun towards the end of the second day. It was really enjoyable event."
