Baylor finished a strong third at the 2014 TKO and now as a member of the KENDA-backed AmPro Yamaha team, he is looking forward to the 2015 event. “In 2013, I made the main and learned a lot” said Baylor. “I put in a lot of hard work and that helped me get a good result in 2014. I love riding the rocky terrain and it is nice to do a one off event with no points on the line and just let it all hang out there.”

Jordan Ashburn

Jordan Ashburn is a Tennessee native and he has competed in all four previous TKO events. The longtime AmPro Yamaha rider has shown great speed but will be looking for his first TKO podium in 2015.

Daniel Milner

Daniel Milner is an Australian transplant spending his first season racing in the US. He recently took a big win at the KENDA Full Gas Sprint Enduro series by outdueling Kailub Russell, the current GNCC Champion. This will be Milner’s first attempt at the TKO.

Cody Webb will be back to defend his TKO title and Great Britain’s Jonny Walker has confirmed he will be competing in his first TKO along with the AmPro Yamaha team riders. Look for more top riders to be confirmed as we close in on the event.
