Sequatchie, TN (November 22, 2016) – The Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, Tennessee will host the seventh annual Kenda Tennessee Knockout on the weekend of August 12-13, 2017.

American Cody Webb has proven to be the dominant rider at the TKO winning the last four years after taking second the first two years of the event. Webb has faced stiff competition from international riders the past two years. In 2015, Webb out-dueled the UK’s Jonny Walker, recognized as one of the best Extreme Enduro racers in the world, to take the win. And in 2016, Webb took the win over South Africa’s Wade Young, who has also won some of the best known Extreme races in the world.
Webb will be back on his FMF KTM looking to make it five in a row. The top off-road racers from around the world will be invited to compete and amateur riders can race on Saturday with the top finishers earning the opportunity to move on to the Sunday Expert Knockout rounds.
