David Knight - World Enduro in Sardinia
David Knight has worked hard to push the BMW G450X to the top but it’s clear the bike and rider aren’t working out.

David Knight and the off-road team of BMW Motorrad Motorsport will be parting company. The two-timesĀ World Enduro Championship winner and winner of the US Grand National Cross Country only joined the BMW Motorrad Team Offroad at the beginning of the 2009 season. The move during the current enduro racing season is by mutual agreement.

Before the start of the racing season David Knight completed several tests on the G 450 X racing machine. However, during the season it has become apparent that rider and racing bike do not harmonise well enough to be able to achieve top placements within this highly competitive environment. For this reason, David Knight andĀ BMW Motorrad Motorsport have decided to end their collaboration in good and fair manner.
