Husqvarna confirms Bolt, LeBlond, and Haaker for 2023 Red Bull Tennessee Knockout

Husqvarna will have a strong team of three riders aiming for a win at the 2023 Red Bull Tennessee Knockout. The UK’s Billy Bolt (@billybolt57) and America’s Ryder LeBlond (@ryderleblond_) and Colton Haaker (@coltonhaaker) will be viable threats for the top of the podium.

Bolt, the three-time SuperEnduro champion, also won the 2018 WESS (World Enduro Super Series) championship and won the 2021 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship. The British rider came out on top of a great head-to-head battle with Mani Lettenbichler to win the 2021 TKO en route to that championship. An injury took him out of much of the 2022 season, but he will be back to try to get his second TKO win.

The US-based Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will have Ryder LeBlond aiming for a TKO podium finish. The young Pennsylvania rider finished second in the 2022 and 2023 AMA Hard Enduro championships and was the top American finisher at the 2022 TKO event.

Colton Haaker, the five-time AMA EnduroCross champion will also be competing at the TKO for the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team. The California native that now lives in Idaho has the skills to compete for a podium spot in the intense TKO race format.
