Knight crowned British Enduro Champion 2009

Manx star David Knight has won the British Enduro Championship.

He claimed victory on both days of the third round in Mid-Wales at the weekend and, with the next round being cancelled, Knighter has wrapped up the title after winning four of the five days of competition this season.

Knight showed his versaility by winning a wet Saturday race and a sunny Sunday.

He said "Despite the bad weather on day one it was a great event, with a really good special test. It's a shame for the organisers that the weather spoiled things a bit, but I had a great time on both days. Claiming the British title was a little unexpected but obviously it's always nice to win. I'm still planning to compete in the last round of the series though. The great thing for me was that the test had a bit of everything, which is exactly what I need to get the bike set up well for world championship racing. The first day went well on each of the special tests. I was riding within myself and still able to pull good time on the other riders. Day two also went really well, so all in all I'm really pleased with everything."
