David Knight was left frustrated by mechanical issues at the sixth round of the E3 class at the Enduro World Championships in Sweden.

The four-time world champion from the Isle of Man was looking to build on his victory in the previous round but was hampered throughout the competition.

The 34-year-old won the opening super test but placed tenth and fourth over the two days in Husaberg.

The result leaves him fourth in the overall standings.

He said: "It's been a disappointing weekend to be fair. I was expecting a strong result and the conditions are similar to what I train in back at home, but it didn't go to plan.

"I've had some unexpected problems but I will regroup and come back stronger in Finland."

Knight is just five points behind third placed Estonian Aigar Leok but 75 points behind his French KTM team-mate Christophe Nambotin, who won both days competition.

Meanwhile, fellow Manx rider Danny McCanney placed fourth and second in the Junior Class to sit third in the standings.

The seventh round will be held in Finland on the 1-2 September.
