David Knight
Knight is a double GNCC and World Enduro champion

David Knight made it two wins out of two in the Enduro Three class of the 2010 World Enduro Championship in Portugal on Sunday.

The KTM rider trailed his French rival Christophe Nambotin by just two seconds after a rain soaked first day.

Knight came out fighting on the second day and showed his class to claim a commanding 27-second winning margin.

"I was really disappointed not to win day one but I guess I made up for it," the Isle of Man rider side.

He added: "I'm really pleased with the way Spain and Portugal have gone and I'm looking forward to the rest of the championship now."

Knight will take a eight-point lead into the third round which will be held in Italy on 22-23 May.
