On Labor Day weekend 2012, many of the world’s top off-road motorcycle riders will face a brutal test of man and machine at the 2nd Annual Kenda AMA Tennessee Knockout (TKO), fueled by Monster Energy.
The TKO is the creation of Dan Brown, the owner of the Trials Training Center, which has hosted National and World Championship Trials events with assistance from Eric Peronnard, the founder of EnduroCross. The event features a multi round “Knockout” format. Each round is different as the riders race against the clock in some rounds and head to head in others and they do so on both short and long courses consisting of extremely difficult terrain. All of the action is designed to be very spectator friendly with easy viewing access to many of the most challenging sections.
The TKO also includes amateur classes on the previous day with the top 25 finishers earning the opportunity to compete in the Pro class.
