Knight has been British Enduro Champion eight times

David Knight continued his return to fitness with a second consecutive overall victory at the final round of the British Enduro Championships.

The eight-time British champion from the Isle of Man dominated the weekend's Natterjack Enduro, despite still recovering from double hip surgery.

The 33-year-old said: "I'm still not 100 per cent fit, but I am happy with my performance over the weekend."

Tom Sagar finished second with Manx rider Alex Rockwell third.

The four-time world champion added: "I got the win on both days, which was good, but I was a little frustrated with the way things went.

"I didn't feel great during the week before the race, but I knew I needed to get more riding time in and knew that the Natterjack would be a lot tougher than the previous round."

Despite finishing fourth on the final stage, Greg Evans won the overall British title with Isle of Man rider Danny McCanney third.

Knight and McCanney will both compete in the final round of the World Enduro Championships this weekend.
