Hi, my name is David Knight. My discipline is Enduro. My friends call me Squarefoot. I was born on 31 May 1978 in Isle of Man, UK. My special talent is Extreme Enduro. My philosophy of life is success is not measured in money. My favourite food is pasta.


Anyone born on the Isle of Man is going to be influenced to some degree by a yearning to become a motorbike racer. For David Knight it was simply a reassurance that he wanted to race. However, it wasn’t the comparatively smooth and fast discipline of MotoGP that really tweaked the young rider’s interest; it was the grit and grime of motorbike Enduro.

David Knight worked his way up through the Enduro ranks to be picked up by KTM in 2004. Since then he has been World Enduro Champion twice, British Enduro Champion six times and had numerous high-profile wins including Last Man Standing and more.

For many riders this would be a commendable career’s achievement but David realised these goals before he had even turned 30. His cool and determined riding style have made him a star amongst the many fans who refer to him as ‘Knighter’ and follow his career with almost as much passion and vigour as the man himself.
