Knighter invincible at the 4th “The Tough One”

Posted:

KTM's David Knight took his revenge on fellow KTM factory rider Taddy Blazusiak at the weekend taking a victorious fourth edition of the extreme Enduro Sprint Scramble rightly named "The Tough One". Blazusiak, who stole victory from the Manxman at the legendary Last Man Standing in the USA in the closing stages of 2007 was second at this ch allenging event held in the at Nantmawr Quarry near Oswestry (Shropshire U.K.). The stage is now set for a great rematch between these two talented riders at their next mutual encounter. Organizers slipped a few more features into this year's challenge and along with the quarry terrain, riders were confronted with more log sections, lorry beds, definitely more rocks and hills and downhill sections described as "just plain scary". Adding to the attractiveness of the event, spectators who braved the weather and the mud got to see more of their heroes on the circuit because entry was limited to 50 riders. Knighter got away well in the first lap followed by Wayne Braybrook and Taddy in fourth place, setting the stage for the rest of the event, which started one hour earlier than previous years. Darkness closed in at 5.00 p.m. leaving the masters of extreme Enduro to negotiate their way through the closing stages with the aid of bike and helmet lights. But Knight, fresh from GNCC successes in the USA was determined to hold onto The Tough One title and had no trouble walking away with the prize money and congratulations from teammate Taddy, who finished second. Extreme specialist and former Hells Gate winner Braybrook was third.
