METZELER SECURES TWO TITLES IN ONE WEEKEND
September 6 2010.

David Knight (KTM) and his Metzeler 6 Days Extreme tyres have secured enough points after the GP of Turkey to guarantee the 2010 World Title in the E3 class of the FIM Enduro World Championship, following in the footsteps of teammate Ivan Cervantes (KTM) who is now racing for the E2 class title.

After competing in some World Enduro and Enduro Cross races last year without a solid finish in the standings, the professional enduro rider from the Isle of Man found his place on the KTM Enduro Factory Team. Winning over half of the fourteen rounds so far this season, Knight proved he still has the mental and physical stamina demanded by such extreme racing. 

With a maximum of 50 points remaining to be assigned in the E2 class at the final race in France, the nearest competitor will be unable to surpass the German tyre brand for the title. The E1 class standings remain extremely tight, with 6 Days Extreme equipped riders Eero Remes (KTM) and Johnny Aubert (KTM) just 11 and 20 points from the lead respectively.

Metzeler's talented Enduro riders have already proven a consistency of winning in all weather, temperature and terrain conditions throughout the eight GP season. The FIM Enduro World Championship is among the most demanding off-road competitions in motorcycle racing and Metzeler continues its heritage as the enduro king as it continues to support riders in all three classes.
