KTM’s Blazusiak & Brown to Kenda KO

2011 KTM Extreme Enduro

KTM has confirmed that Taddy Blazusiak and Mike Brown will compete in the first annual Kenda Tennessee Knockout, fueled by Monster Energy event at the Trials Training Center on August 28.

This new "American Extreme Enduro" will provide a great challenge to some of the world’s top off road motorcycle riders and will be very spectator friendly with multiple viewing areas.

Blazusiak, the Polish rider that has won the last two GEICO EnduroCross championships and FIM World Indoor Enduro championships to go along with prestigious wins at some of the world’s toughest Extreme Enduro events including Last Man Standing and Erzeberg (5x straight) is amazing to watch on any terrain and is quite the showman.

Taddy Blazusiak (KTM) says: "I enjoy attacking difficult obstacles and racing through sections that even Trials riders would find challenging. So I am really looking forward to competing in this new event and the multi round Knockout format will also provide a challenge".

Tennessee’s Mike Brown has proven to be as tough as anybody on a motorcycle and he will try to use his local knowledge to challenge Taddy.

Mike Brown (KTM) says: "It should be hot and humid for this event and I live and train in this environment so that should help me deal with the challenge that will provide. Plus, I should have a lot of local fans lining the course to help cheer me on."

The 2011 Kenda Tennessee Knockout event will feature Expert racing on Sunday, August 28. Amateur riders will get the opportunity to compete on much of the same course on Saturday, August 27 and the top finishers will have the opportunity to advance to the Sunday Expert finals with free entries.
