Rabaconda Rider David Knight [Q&A]
David Knight used to tell his friends he would one day be World Champion and he wasn't lying. Three E3 World Titles in 2005, 2006 and 2010, including many other awards and honors, have made Knighter quite the accomplished rider. David has been using the Rabaconda 3-Minute Mousse Changer since 2014. How did you get started in riding? My late father rode trials, then my elder brother and I wanted to do the same. I loved riding more than anything and I still do! What do you do when you aren't riding? What are your hobbies? If I'm not riding for training, then I'm riding bikes as a hobby. Riding motorbikes is my life, and it can be trials, mx, or road racing. I love riding all bikes and trying to learn new things. What do you do in the off-season? I usually ride more extreme types of terrain, having good fitness and good fun while training. Do you have any pre-race rituals? No, just preparing my bike well so I know it's good enough to win with. Where's your favorite place to ride? Your favorite track? At home in the Isle of Man. This is my favorite, and I don't really have a favorite track in Enduro because we never race the same course.   What was your best moment as a pro rider? Winning the ISDE overall in 2005. It's a very historic event, and I won it less than 3 months after my dad died, so it will always be my greatest win. What are your riding goals? To have fun and to always improve. What is your advice for those just starting out? Have fun, enjoy it for what it is, because riding a bike is so great. Why did you choose the Rabaconda 3-Minute Mousse Changer? I always use the best equipment available and this is why I chose Rabaconda.
