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.
