With last week’s press release announcing the dates for the 2015 TKO, we know that there are many amateur competitors eager to register for the race on Saturday with the top finishers earning the opportunity to move on to the Sunday Expert Knockout rounds.
We’ll be opening up online registration on Dec. 1, 2014. Pre-Entry online fee will be $65 this year, a slight increase from previous years to help offset the cost of electronic timing which we’ll be using both days.
We’ve also expanded the maximum number of entries to 140 riders.
The Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, Tennessee will host the fifth annual KENDA Tennessee Knockout on the weekend of August 15-16, 2015. The event has quickly become one of the premier off-road motorcycles races, attracting some of the best racers in the world.
Tennessee’s Mike Brown won the first two KENDA Tennessee Knockout events and Cody Webb took the title in 2013 and 2014. You can expect that these two riders will be joined by a large group of top off road racers looking to conquer the tough conditions at the TKO.
The 2015 event will take place just one week prior to the GEICO AMA EnduroCross event in nearby Atlanta. So it is expected that more of the top EnduroCross riders from the west will be able to make the long trip to the east coast to compete in both events. The expert riders will again be competing for a $10,000 purse.
The top off-road racers from around the world will be invited to compete and amateur riders can race on Saturday with the top finishers earning the opportunity to move on to the Sunday Expert Knockout rounds. On Sunday, the riders will compete in a very tough and spectator-friendly multi-round format.
