Former two-time World Enduro Champion and double US GNCC title winner David Knight is pleased to announce that he will race for the Farioli KTM team in '10 in the World Enduro Championship where he will compete on official KTM factory machinery in the Enduro 3 class.
Returning to the World Enduro Championship at the start of '09 following two championship-winning seasons in the States, Knight endured a largely frustrating year in '09, despite claiming wins in both the WEC and US GNCC series. Now, with the support of the Farioli KTM team, David will start '10 focused on claiming a third Enduro 3 World Championship.
Although not an official member of the KTM Enduro Factory Team, David will receive factory backing from the Austrian company, ensuring that he has both the machinery and support needed to claim World Championship success in '10.
David Knight: "I'm extremely happy to be riding for the Farioli KTM team next year. Knowing I will receive full factory KTM equipment, and be a part of what is a great team that I know well, means I'm really looking forward to the start of the new season. With the Farioli KTM team and support from my personal sponsors, I know I can re-establish myself at the top of the Enduro 3 World Championship. 2009 was a difficult year for me but I learned a lot and I'm even more determined than ever to win more WEC titles.
"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Kawasaki that has supported me during the second half of '09, especially everyone at the Kawasaki Superbike Racing Team. Claiming victory in the Enduro 2 class at the final round of the '09 World Enduro Championship for Kawasaki is something that I am extremely proud of. I'd like to wish Kawasaki every success in 2010. During the coming weeks and months I'm going to be training hard during the winter both in the UK and in the States. I can't wait for the start of the '10 WEC series."
