Winning Sherco Debut for Knighter
David Knight made a winning debut on the new Sherco in Holland at the weekend racing an Enduro X type course at the annual Dutch event.
Winning both races with ease, David focused on getting some valuable bike and race time on the blue machine and really enjoyed the day.
“It was a good fun event with loads of spectators and it was a great debut for me on the Sherco,” told Knight. “I rode the 300 4-stroke as I’m pretty sure it’s what I’ll ride in the SuperEnduro events this year.
The competition wasn’t like that at a SuperEnduro World Championship but I felt I raced two very strong races and felt confident and at ease on the bike. I made two good starts, which is encouraging as I’m on a smaller capacity bike and I’m not the lightest rider out there, but the Sherco engine pulled well. I will continue to work hard and be ready for Liverpool when the SuperEnduro series kicks off in mid November.
Continuing his preparation for the opening round of the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship in Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Sunday November 17th, Knight will not compete at this weekend’s Weston Beach Race.
“I would like to confirm I am not racing Weston Beach Race – I believe I’ve been advertised as competing but haven’t agreed to. I’m focusing on being in good shape for the SuperEnduro World Championship series.”
