Graffunder has been a top finisher at the TKO before and Steward Baylor is a former National Enduro Champion who is capable of a top result in the tough Tennessee terrain. Buttrick is a solid competitor that has had a resurgence of speed since joining the SRT KTM team in 2016 and Wild Wally Palmer is always a crowd favorite due to his go for broke riding style.

Kyle Redmond (@kyleredmond777) and Max Gerston (@maxgerston) are two of the most talented off-road motorcycle riders around but often get overshadowed by some of the better known stars.

Both riders have stood on the podium at major races including AMA EnduroCross and they are now looking to make that last surge to challenge for wins. The Beta USA (@betausa) backed riders will be on hand this weekend at the Kenda Tennessee Knockout looking to step out of the shadows.

Max Gerston
Max Gerston’s friendly personality makes him a fan favorite and he is hungry for podiums.
