WORLD Enduro star David Knight is a father.
The Ballaugh ace was blessed with a son, Finley Paul, by his partner Emma Corlett on Tuesday evening.
Despite being about one week overdue, the youngster weighed in at an average weight of 7lb 5oz but he definitely has his father’s genes as he apparently has big feet and hands!
David’s not hanging around too long to change nappies, he’s off to Tong Hall near Leeds this Sunday for the opening round of the ACU British Extreme Enduro Championship.
l David and brother Juan Knight are riding 300 HM four-strokes (big-bore kitted CRFX250 Hondas), while Danny McCanney will be on his regular John Shirt supplied 300 Gas Gas.
David and Danny will be heading out to Spain in 10 days time for the second round of the 2012/2013 FIM SuperEnduro World Championship at the Palau San Jordi in Barcelona on February 10.
The complex, one of the main indoor venues for the 1992 Olympic Games, will also host a round of the FIM X-Trial World Championship the same weekend.
l David Knight, TT lap record holder John McGuinness and Isle of Man residents Cal Crutchlow and Jonathan Rea featured in the 2012 review edition of MCN Sport.
The Four Amigos star in an entertaining 14-page feature based around a thoroughly wet day out in the Manx hills on enduro bikes when Knighter was teaching his road-based rivals a trick or three.
Also in a packed edition is a look back at Ryan Farquhar’s career, the shortest street circuit in Ireland, Michael Dunlop’s naked ambition to win a Superbike TT and the Gypsy to riches story of Casey Stoner.
