Beta confirms Walker, Apolle and Lewis for 2023 Red Bull Tennessee Knockout; British, German and American riders representing Beta

The Italian Beta motorcycle brand (@betamotor1905) will have a strong team of three riders competing at the Red Bull Tennessee Knockout on August 18-20 at the Trials Training Center. The UK’s Jonny Walker (@jonnywalker_22), Germany’s Tim Apolle (@timapolle96), and America’s Danny Lewis (@danny_lewis_9) are all capable of top finishes.

Jonny Walker, the current AMA EnduroCross champion and former winner of major international Hard Enduro events, including the Erzbergrodeo and Red Bull Romaniacs, has had a strong 2023 season so far. The Beta rider finished second to Billy Bolt in the FIM SuperEnduro championship and backed that up with a fourth-place finish at the Erzbergrodeo in June.

Tim Apolle has spent a lot of time racing in the US, including a couple of seasons of AMA EnduroCross. The German has earned several podiums in EnduroCross and international Hard Enduro events. He loves to put on a show so he is a fun rider to keep an eye on.

Pennsylvania’s Danny Lewis is a strong up and coming rider that has focused on the AMA US Hard Enduro championship for the past few years. A switch to Beta motorcycles in 2023 has contributed to several top ten finishes including a fifth place at the Snake Bike Hard Enduro in Texas.
