Surely he'll break enough to make a sizeable dent?

[Pause for the company accountant]. . . -Hey! We're paying for those!@?!!

Knight just placed 2nd at the RevLimiter Extreme Enduro.
Pretty impressive times too!

Interesting that he was not sporting any redbull colours! I thought that once you were a redbull athlete it was pretty much for life (unless you join a factory team that is sponsored by monster)

He placed 4th overall for the entire weekend. Two 4th's and a 2nd place in the third race. Not bad for his first big outing but he said he lost his clutch in both of the first two races. Hmm. Wonder what that was?

Something about an aftermarket perch that he "preferred" but somehow failed him during the race. Not really sure what that means.

Ya sorry I should have been clearer. He placed 2nd only in the last race. But it was a much tougher race than the first two.

I think the style of scoring is a little weird for the event but thats just my opinion.

Well, I wish he would be more clear on that as some will just use it to say that GG sucks even though it might be something out of GG's control.

?What a fun, tough weekend racing here in Texas at the Rev Limiter,? told Knight on Facebook. ?In race 1&2 I was running a good second behind Cody but had an issue so lost my clutch both races and ended fourth.

?We got it sorted finally for race 3, a shorter track and much more difficult over 45 minutes and ran a close second closing in with a couple of laps left only to lose a few minutes when a rider had a big crash and blocked the track.

?But well happy with the bike and myself as riding well all day and will be good with a bit of luck. Thanks to everyone for who helped me and gave me loads of support, it really was a pleasure to race in Texas again and I?ll defiantly be back soon.?

Here is part of a statement from GGmoto's NA

"The only things changed were a stiffer set of suspension and the switch to a different clutch master cylinder for a personal preference in feel, which created some issues in the first 2 events! Mr Knight was a crowd favorite and enjoyed the entire weekend!"

Thank you! I hope that info gets out there.
