Colton Haaker and Graham Jarvis confirmed for 2017 TKO; Rockstar Husqvarna Team aiming for the top of the podium

The Rockstar Husqvarna team has confirmed that both Colton Haaker (@coltonhaaker) and Graham Jarvis (@gforcejarvis) will be competing in the 2017 Kenda Tennessee Knockout, presented by Moose Racing and SRT Offroad. The seventh running of the TKO will take place at the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, Tennessee on the weekend of August 12-13.

Haaker has dominated the indoor off-road racing scene lately taking two consecutive FIM SuperEnduro World championships and the 2016 AMA EnduroCross championship. The California native certainly has the skills to compete for the win at the TKO but has not yet been able to put it together. He will be looking to change that in 2017.

Jarvis has won just about every major Extreme Enduro event in the world multiple times. His resume includes three wins at the Erzberg Rodeo, four wins at the Red Bull Sea to Sky, five wins at the Red Bull Romaniacs and five wins at the Hells Gate Enduro. This year, he will take on the Kenda Tennessee Knockout, America’s most prestigious Extreme Enduro.

Both Rockstar Husqvarna riders will be aiming to dethrone Red Bull KTM’s Cody Webb and it should prove to be another epic battle.

Look for more top riders to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Graham Jarvis, world’s top Extreme Enduro racer, confirmed for 2016 TKO

Graham Jarvis (@gforcejarvis) has confirmed that he will compete at the 2016 Kenda Tennessee Knockout being held at the Trials Training Center on Sunday, August 21st. The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team rider is arguably the world’s best Extreme Enduro racer having won all of the major races on multiple occasions. In 2016, he has already won the Erzberg Enduro and Romaniacs, two of the toughest and most famous Extreme Enduros. And now, he will try to add the Tennessee Knockout to that list of accomplishments.

The UK’s Jarvis excels at extremely tough and long competitions in particular so it will be interesting to see how the shorter, multi-round format at the Tennessee Knockout suits his style. There will certainly be plenty of tough obstacles to allow Jarvis to showcase his amazing skills. He will also face off against Cody Webb, America’s top Extreme racer who finished second to Jarvis at Erzberg earlier this year. Webb is a three-time winner of the TKO and will want to defend his home turf.

Also,  Jarvis will be hosting his G-force Technical Riding Academy at the TTC in the four days immediately following the 2016 TKO. Click here for details.

Mike Brown and Colton Haaker confirmed for 2016 Tennessee Knockout Enduro

The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team of Mike Brown (@browniemx) and Colton Haaker (@coltonhaaker) will be competing at the 2016 Kenda Tennessee Knockout. The sixth annual TKO will take place at the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, Tennessee on Sunday, August 21st.

Brown, a Tennessee native won the 2011 and 2012 TKO events to the delight of his home state fans. The former Motocross champion that has successfully converted to off-road competition can never be counted out for the win in tough conditions. He proved that in 2012 when he recovered from nearly being eliminated in the multi-round knockout format to come back and take the win:

Haaker captured the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship earlier this year so his skills and speed on difficult obstacles are without question. Haaker is also a multi-time AMA EnduroCross main event winner and took the 2015 King of the Motos win. He has competed at several previous TKO events but has so far been unable to make it up onto the podium and will be looking to change that for 2016:
