Here are the row assignments for the 2016 TKO Amateur class (PDF), updated on Aug. 12:
The sixth annual KENDA AMA Tennessee Knockout, presented by Moose Racing and SRT, will take place on August 20-21, 2016. KTM’s Cody Webb (@codywebb2) won an epic battle with the UK’s Jonny Walker (jonnywalker_22) to take the 2015 TKO title. Webb will face stiff competition for the 2016 event as a huge list of the top off-road racers from around the world have vowed to challenge Webb for the largest piece of the $10,000 purse.
The KENDA AMA Tennessee Knockout uses a unique four-round Knockout race format that is challenging for the riders and entertaining for the fans. The amazing Trials Training Center facility allows for easy access to the race action.
The top five finishers at the previous TKO events have included riders from EnduroCross, Trials, National Enduro, GNCC, WORCS and even the Enduro World Championship. So it is a great mix of backgrounds facing off on an extremely challenging course with a large purse on the line.
Pre-qualified riders get a free entry into the Sunday program. These riders earn an invite based top results in several major US or International off-road motorcycle race events. On Saturday, those riders that did not already earn an invite can challenge themselves on the course with the top finishers earning their own invite to the Sunday Knockout rounds.
The following riders have earned invites for the 2016 KENDA Tennessee Knockout:
