Knight wins again

David Knight claimed another come-from-behind victory in the Grand National Cross Country Championship yesterday (Sunday) at the Pirelli Big Buck in Union, South Carolina.

It was the defending Can-Am GNCC Champion's third win in the first four rounds.

Under near perfect weather conditions, the Red Bull KTM rider came home ahead of Australian Josh Strang and American Charlie Mullins, who're FMF Suzuki teammates.

Speaking post-race, Knight said he was pleased with his start to the new season,

Big Buck was where he claimed his first series victory last year but he already holds a commanding lead early in 2008.

The series continues in a fortnight with the Acerbis Loretta Lynn's GNCC in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, on April the 26 and 27.
