Knox was born on the track and we’re still passionate about motorcycle sport to this day. From club racing to MotoGP, you’ll see Knox products being tested to the limits every weekend. Here’s a snap shot of what some Knox Athletes have been up to over the past month;

John McPhee survived a tough weekend in Jerez at round four of the Moto3 championship, held during the MotoGP. Following a difficult start, John was recovering well and closing the gap to the top 20 riders in a hard-fought charge when he crashed out. Thankfully John was Knox-protected and emerged injury-free, with a two week break before the French Grand Prix in Le Mans.
