David Knight x7 british enduro champion, x2 world enduro champion, x2 Last man standing winner, x2 Erzburg champion,x1 stephan Everts ass kicker.
David is the factoryrider for the KTM world enduro team, and in the off season last year KTM asked him to test the Factory KTM dakar bikes to see if there was anyway off improving them.
He rode for a three day test, and at the end of it he said it is the most dangerous thing hes ever done, and stated he would rather do the isle of man TT, cause it is safer.
Thats from a man who is in my opinion the best off road rider in the world.

I went down to Malaga port to watch all come in to load onto the ferrys,a great day was had,typical Spain though, police dont give a monkeys,and the crowds were stopping all the vehicles,to take pictures & get autographs, it was organised chaos,but we did'nt care as we were right at the front <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (memento @ Jan 8 2007, 12:53 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}><div class='quotemain'>Dakar has started, but I don't see it's topic here.

For me this is one of the most impotrant (and fascinating) events in motosport.

Problem is that I can only watch 30 minutes on Eurosport every day. I want more!!!

They sound like more offroad credentials, not from the TT itself. I'm sure Manx offroad racing is up to great standards safety wise, it's road races like the IOM TT and, probably even worse the Macau GP that I'm against.

Did that guy make it? The one without a tyre? That was pure class! Sorry didn't figure out who it was as I'd had a few to drink by then, but it looked like most people were going nowhere fast!

His name is BIANCHI PRATA PEDRO (POR) number 45, and he made it!!!! I don't know how (and at what point of stage that happened), but he did it.

COMA IS OUT OF THE RALLY! High drama as Marc Coma - who held a 52 minute lead of the bikes - crashes 57 km into the stage and demolishes his bike.
