David Knight, the 2005 Maxxis EnduroCross Champion has committed to return and defend his title for the 2006 event. Knight had an incredible 2005 season winning almost every event he entered capping off the year with a victory at the Maxxis EnduroCross.

"The EnduroCross in America has become one of my favorite events," explained Knight. "I look forward to returning to Las Vegas and go for the title one more time. It's a very tough race but also very fun to compete in."

In 2004, Knight finished second overall behind Ryan Hughes but last year he was determined to take the title. Knight battled with Hughes and Ricky Dietrich to take over the lead halfway through the final race and the eventual win. "David is without question one of the top off-road racers in the world," claims Eric Peronnard, promoter of the Maxxis EnduroCross. "We are very happy that he chose to return and defend his title. As in the past two years, we expect great race action from the entire field of riders."

The Maxxis EnduroCross takes place inside the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night November 18. There is a Qualifier Round on Friday, November 17 where the top ten riders on that day will compete on Saturday night against the best off-road racers in the world.
