The tenth annual Kenda Tennessee Knockout took place at the Trials Training Center (@trialstrainingcenter) in Sequatchie, Tennessee on the weekend of August 14-16. We have video highlights from the grueling four rounds of Sunday pro-competition where Canada’s Trystan Hart took his first TKO win over six-time winner Cody Webb. Chile’s Benjamin Herrera finished third ahead of Noah Kepple and Keith Curtis, who rounded out the top five.
Nearly 300 amateur riders competed on Friday and Saturday gunning for the AMA Amateur Extreme Enduro Grand National Championship. Danny Lewis took the win in the championship-deciding second round on Saturday. Will Riordan finished second and Tyler Kincaid rounded out the podium. Those three along with the other top 30 finishers got the opportunity to compete in the Sunday competition against the twenty-six pre-qualified pro riders.
Hart dominated the Sunday competition, winning all four rounds of racing, including the main event, which included just the top fifteen riders. The Sunday course included some brutal new sections including the Four Logs, Walk in the Park and a new hill climb that Hart was the first to ever climb in TKO competition.
See this 7-minute highlights video of the 2018 Kenda Tennessee Knockout Extreme Enduro (now more often called Hard Enduro around the world), presented by Moose Racing, SRT-Offroad and AOMC:
Despite attracting many of the world’s top Hard Enduro Racers over the past several years, American Cody Webb managed to win his sixth straight TKO in 2018. The FMF KTM rider also managed to achieve this despite breaking his foot and injuring his knee at the Erzberg Rodeo in June. Germany’s Manuel Lettenbichler finished second on his KTM and Spain’s Mario Roman rounded out the podium on his Sherco.
Wade Young, the South African that won the 2018 Red Bull Romaniacs, battled for a podium position early in the main event but dropped back to finish fourth. And American Colton Haaker rounded out the top five on his Rockstar Husqvarna.
Over 250 amateur riders signed up for the Saturday racing. Hawaii’s Kekoa Estrella took the Amateur win to earn the AMA Amateur Extreme Enduro Grand National Championship and move forward to Sunday along with 29 other riders.
