American Extreme Enduro

The Kenda Tennessee Knockout is a new “American Extreme Enduro” that will take place at the Trials Training Center in Tennessee on August 28.

So if you have always wanted to compete in or watch one of the Extreme Enduro’s that you have read about or see videos of from Europe, now is your chance. Entries are free for qualified Expert/Pro riders (EnduroCross, GNCC, OMA, National Enduro, WORCS, etc.) and there is a nearly $10,000 purse for the top ten finishers.

There will be amateur classes on Saturday competing on a tamed down course and those riders will get the opportunity to qualify for the Sunday Expert final with a free entry. All Saturday participants also get a free entry to watch the Sunday Expert finals.

The Sunday expert event will feature a multi round “Knockout” format. Each round will be different as the riders will race against the clock in some rounds and head to head in others and they will 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.

This exciting, spectator-friendly event should attract extensive media attention and is conveniently taking place just two days after round three of the GEICO EnduroCross series in nearby Indianapolis, Indiana. Throttle Entertainment will be on location to film the event for their upcoming television series, “Enduro Kings.”

This new show documents the world of Extreme Enduro and the riders who compete in this difficult and demanding sport. In addition to the TV series, Throttle Entertainment will also be filming TKO for segments in their new “Man and Machine” Extreme Enduro DVD series that comes out in 2012.
