The Isle of Man's Jamie McCanney has followed in his brother Danny's footsteps by winning the Enduro Junior World Championship.
McCanney secured the title with a fourth-place finish in the final round in Requista, France on Saturday.
The 21-year-old Husqvarna rider tweeted: "2015 EJ World Champion. Words can't describe how I feel right now."
His brother Danny, who now rides in the Senior Class, also won the title aged 21 in 2013.
Jamie said: "It's a great feeling to have won the Enduro Junior title.
"I knew I didn't have to win either day in France but I wanted to end the season with the best results I could.
"I basically did what I needed to do".
McCanney finished his campaign with 233 points, 20 ahead of nearest rival Giacomo Redondi.
