Prologue will kick off the 2024 Red Bull TKO weekend on Thursday night in Downtown Nashville

The world’s best Hard Enduro motorcycle racers will take on the tough Trials Training Center terrain for the fourteenth annual Red Bull Tennessee Knockout (TKO) on August 23-25.

To kick off the weekend, the top sixteen pro riders will compete in a head-to-head prologue on a man-made straight-rhythm-inspired enduro course in downtown Nashville on Thursday, August 22nd. The 2022 Nashville prologue was a huge spectacle and there will be more exciting details to share about the 2024 version in the coming weeks.

The 2024 TKO will serve as round five of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship and the seventh and final round of the AMA US Hard Enduro Championship. So the top international riders such as Mani Lettenbichler, Mario Roman, Wade Young and Teodor Kabakchiev will take on the top North American riders including Trystan Hart, Cody Webb, Ryder LeBlond and Will Riordan.

Lettenbichler is currently on a ten race FIM Hard Enduro win streak, but Hart has managed to beat him at the last two TKO events, so we can expect an epic battle for TKO supremacy between those two.

In addition to the top pro riders, up to five hundred amateur riders will take on the TKO course aiming for the AMA Grand Championship titles and class wins. The top thirty amateur riders will also earn the opportunity to compete with the world’s best riders during the Sunday pro racing. The ECR eMoto (electric motorcycle) class will also be back for the third year aiming for an AMA Grand Championship.

The free electric motorcycle demo rides, sponsored by Surron, will be back again in 2024 and open to anybody that wants to give one of the bikes from multiple brands, including Surron and Electric Motion a test ride.

The 2024 Red Bull Tennessee Knockout will again be a three-day format with a Hot-Lap on Friday to set amateur racer starting positions followed by two rounds of amateur racing on Saturday. The pro riders will kick off their weekend with a Hot-Lap on Saturday afternoon and a three round Knock Out format on Sunday. The multiple rounds of racing and course layout provide a full weekend of exciting, spectator-friendly racing.
