SOCIAL DISTORTION

2011- David Knight ‘honored’ to collect MBE (Standing for Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire)

Mr Knight said: “The Queen asked if I was a TT rider and I explained that I ride off-road. She was very interested. It was an unbelievable experience and I was very honored. “I think I was more nervous about meeting her and getting my bow right than I have ever been before a race. I didn’t know what to expect but it was a day I will never forget.”

At the time, the 33-year-old had won the Enduro World Championship three times and was awarded the honor for services to motorsport. He had also won 10 British titles and four in the United States.

 

VIDEO JUKEBOX

The GNCC video from the Mountaineer round was muddy and tough. Steward Baylor won and said that on the last lap he was fading like a 2-dollar Tee shirt.  This video shows just how tough the conditions were.

 

This is Mario Roman’s Go Pro footage from the Canadian Outlier’s Hard Enduro. It’s flat stunning how fast these guys go in tough to read terrain with monumental obstacles.

 

A bunch of dirt bike guys having fun off-road, there’s some good ‘smilers’ here.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

I’m the guy squishing the life out of the 1989 Suzuki RM 125, while my buddy Karel Kramer is slamming a Dr. Pepper. We’re just starting our 125 shootout, setting sag and bars for the test riders. Today’s shootouts are quite a bit more sophisticated with major factory involvement and FYI, we tried to use guys who fit into 28 pants, not 38s- so I was a bystander.
