Colton Haaker Confirmed for 2019 Tennessee Knockout

Defending EnduroCross and Super Enduro champion looking for a TKO win

Rockstar Husqvarna Factory Racing backed Colton Haaker is a two time and current AMA EnduroCross champion and also a two time and current FIM Super Enduro Champion. He has a huge following due to his amazing motorcycle skills regularly shared via Social Media and in his Rare Exception movie released earlier this year. Haaker has also won the King of the Motos to prove that he can be competitive outdoors as well but has yet to finish on the podium at his six previous attempts at the TKO. He will be looking to change that when the 2019 edition takes place at the Trials Training Center on August 16-18.

“I am looking forward to the TKO this year,” said Colton Haaker. “With Cody Webb unable to attend, I feel like I might actually have a chance at winning. I’m going to give it all I’ve got”.

Several top American and International riders are again expected to compete at the 2019 TKO. More riders will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

The 2019 TKO will again serve as the AMA Grand Championship for Extreme Enduro with the Amateur riders competing in a Friday afternoon Prologue and then two rounds or racing on Saturday. The top 30 riders from Saturday will also earn the opportunity to compete on Sunday with the pre-qualified pro riders. The pre-qualified Sunday riders earn an invite based on top results in several major US or International off-road motorcycle series and events. Top-25 pro finishers from the prior year’s TKO also earn a spot on the Sunday invite list.

The Sunday racing uses a unique four round Knockout race format that is challenging for the riders and entertaining for the fans. The course layout provides a lot of great spectator locations with some unbelievably challenging terrain for all four Knockout rounds. Mark your calendar for the weekend of August 16-18 to see the worlds best racers face off against the track and each other.

There is also a Women’s class with a separate main event that will run on Saturday afternoon. This is an AMA Grand Championship class and women riders can still enter.
