Cycle News Staff | August 31, 2012

Sequatchie, TN (August 31, 2012) – While much of the Southeast has been hit by storms, the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie has had very little storm activity and is in perfect condition for this weekend’s second annual KENDA Tennessee Knockout. The TTC crew has been hard at work creating new sections for a nearly fifteen mile “Long Loop”. It includes a lot of new single track that is extremely fun and a few very difficult “challenge” sections. So now is the time to make your final plans to get out and compete on Saturday and/or come out to watch some of the best off road racers in the world compete on Sunday.

The Sunday, pro Knockout format is very spectator friendly and will kick off at 10:00 am with the hot laps followed by two Knockout rounds on the long loop and a final race on the TTC Stadium course. Mike Brown, Paul Whibley, Russell Bobbitt, Cody Webb, Jordan Ashburn, Colton Haaker, Kyle Redmond, Nick Fahringer and Andrew Delong are among the riders planning to compete in the pro class and it should provide an entertaining battle among riders that don’t typically compete against each other as they focus on their respective series. The top GNCC, EnduroCross, Trials and National Enduro riders will be facing off.

Unqualified Expert/Pro and amateur riders can race on Saturday with the top finishers earning the opportunity to move on to the Sunday Expert Knockout rounds. On Sunday, the riders will compete in a very tough and spectator friendly four round Knockout format.
