Born and bred in the Isle of Man, David Knight has always been a demon on two wheels, using the beautiful Manx hills to hone his bike handling skills from an early age. As a schoolboy he would often tell his friends that he would be World Champion one day, his drive and passion for the sport helped him live that dream!
Winning the 2005 World Championship marked his rise to the very top of his sport. Defending that title with a 100% record in 2006 ensured David's name a place in the Enduro hall of fame. Taking on the USA for 2007, David left the WEC behind in search of a new challenge. Despite injury and mechanical problems, David still battled through to win the GNCC series, the AMA Endurocross series and the FIM Indoor Enduro World Cup. A trip to Australia in July gave him the Aussie Four Day title as well.
2008 saw Knighter retain his GNCC title, taking the championship with two rounds to spare. In 2009 he won the British Enduro Championship, silencing his doubters and reaffirming his status as one of the world's best off road riders.
And 2010 brought David back to the KTM team for the World Enduro Championship. Riding again in the E3 class, David won his third World Championship.
